It has been a long time between exhibitions for me, my last solo show being last November at Artisan on Lewis. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been sitting idle for the past twelve months twiddling my fingers. I have been involved in a couple of group shows, one at Milk Factory gallery in Bowral in March and another at Artisan on Lewis in June, but really, I have been working hard towards three (!) exhibitions, two of which are this month!
I couple of weeks ago the first of my new works went on display at Michael Reid’s beautiful Murrurundi gallery situated on the grounds of the beautiful historic Bobadil House. It was the first time my works have featured in the new building purpose dedicated to new exhibitions, and they looked absolutely beautiful there. The old stables, which used to be the gallery space has now been converted into a fabulous retail space and cafe! I highly recommend a visit to the gallery and cafe if you ever find yourself on the New England Highway. It is a beautiful town, well worth a visit. My Garden Party exhibition will be on there until the 25th of November, so do try to pop in while it is on.
I have tried to evoke the feeling of a fete or a fair. Something joyous and fun, full of bunting, cakes, wildlife and frivolity. Something I feel we all need at the moment. It is a party, where all the wild animals and birds have invited themselves along and are enjoying themselves. If you can’t get to the show, you can view the entire exhibition here.
