"The Artist by Artist project is collaboration between ABC Open and the Queensland Arts Council where 20 Queensland based artists were challenged to produce video stories capturing the creative forces that drive their fellow artists.

The result is 20 beautifully told and inspiring vignettes: artists’ lives through artists’ eyes.
Come and meet the Sunshine Coast artists, see their films on the big screen and celebrate ABC Open’s 1st year and 50 years of the Queensland Arts Council."

Thursday 3rd November 6 – 8.30pm The J. 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Heads

Small Works / Small Town + BIG crowd!

Last night's opening exhibit SMALL WORKS / SMALL TOWN saw a HUGE crowd - it was my first time at an opening for Rosebed St Gallery and far out what a crowd, it was packed!

All gathered to celebrate the official opening,

...with drinks and nibbles downstairs, in anticipation the doors were finally opened for all to view and purchase artworks.

And look who I found in the crowd! Good buddy and also exhibiting artist Jo Murray

Designed as a takeaway art show loads of artworks were literally walking out the door! Sales were shared all round, Jo and I both sold work. It was fantastic some artists were even needing to re-stock the empty spaces.

opening night

It's a busy time at the moment, and I've had no posts on art being made -it's all been about what's happening and where. I'm really missing my making time but I guess that's the ebb and flow of things. The whole idea of it I suppose is to exhibit and sell, as much as I'd like to keep everything I make...

I have posted this photo before - the day has arrived! The official opening of the SMALL WORKS / SMALL TOWN Exhibit Friday 28th Oct 6.30pm - Rosebed St Gallery, Eudlo.

I really like this piece "Unicorn" and it's story on how it evolved. A funny thing, I had this piece of steel (the body part) for ages and nothing was coming to me, I knew that something was in it but no matter how many times I picked it up and contemplated it - mental block!!! Anyhows, I let it go. Then one morning while reading "Psychology and Alchemy" by C. G. Jung, he made reference to unicorns in alchemy, and out of the blue I saw the unicorn in the piece of steel. I whipped out of bed and took off for the bit of steel and presto, the Unicorn was formed!

To my supprise the invite features my Unicorn and makes it even more special...

Sneak peek

This post is carried on from my previous blog post and is in reference to the IMAGINE THAT! Creative Showcase Event, with a sneak peek of my Domestic Duties project display preparations.

ONE words are coming in from all directions, and I've started writing them onto the pegs.

It even got a mention on the front page of the local newspaper!

Preparations have been keeping me on the hop....

'Show us your Small's' Exhibition

I've been silently working away at a few assemblages the last month for an exhibition coming up in October at Rosebed Street Gallery. The concept behind this exhbition is to showcase small artworks from a selective of artists. With six to eight pieces from each artist, the artworks will be displayed over a period of 26th October, 2011 to 8th January, 2012.

Here are a few pieces I have made so far, I anticipate to have seven artworks in total...
