exciting news!

Exciting developments have emerged since my last post so I thought it was high time I shared the news! Papillon has been selected to exhibit at two regional galleries in 2017. Having received such an overwhelming response with visitors to Caloundra Regional Gallery
I decided to tour the show.

Papillon's first showing will be in a group exhibition entitled You, Me and a Cup of Tea at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery from 2nd February to 19th March 2017. Curated by Zoe Blandford, both installations that comprise Papillon will showcase in Gallery One and The Vault. Also in Gallery One will feature artworks by three nationally selected artists, and artworks from ten local artists. The iconic building has a unique history of which 57 years (1921-1978) of its life was home to the Commonwealth Bank where several changes to the building's architecture took place creating two concrete bank vaults - used today as the gallery's collection storage and The Vault installation space. The Vault is a groovy little space, having two adjoining rooms - In Flight will suspend from the ceiling in both The Vault gallery rooms, while In the Light of Truth will be displayed in Gallery One.

Then later in the year, Papillon will exhibit in gallery 2, 3 & 4 at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland from 20 August to 8 October 2017. Officially opened in 2003, the Cleveland Gallery is located in town, corner Middle and Bloomfield Streets, with cafe's and shops nearby and only minutes from the ocean. On our recent visit and by local advice we took a short drive to the Lighthouse at Cleveland Point for lunch, and omgward what a treat that turned out to be, lunch with a stunning view...
