2014 Seven artists were selected to exhibit artwork for the exhibition ‘Transformation’. The event was thoughtfully curated by women from the group ‘Food for Thought’a Greek Australian Women’s Network. I was honoured to be part of this exhibition.
Here a few photos from the event which was very much a garden party attended by the Ambassador for Greece Mr Haralampos Dafaranos and his wife Eyvah T. Dafaranos who launched the exhibition,.
Several other exhibits are open at this wonderful venue included George Raftopoulos’ amazing collage/mixed media works on the first floor. Call the Museum for opening hours as I believe the exhibition will be continuing until April. Museum Phone 8615 9016
Yeah that’s me on crutches two and a half weeks after the knee replacement surgery. When I have a little more energy I’ll post some pics of the artwork by the other exhibitors.
There will be several events happening on the day of opening (9th March) so it would be a wonderful time to see some of you there.
I believe the event will be on show until 24th March if you cant be at the opening. There is an RSVP mostly for refreshments and please know that you are all welcome.
It may be my first outing on crutches – if we havent met yet well the crutches (knee replacement) will be a real givaway.
I’m pretty excited about this and as I learn more I will add to this post for your information.
I’m sharing with you some tiny new collages from my visual diary and an image from the art workshops that I teach – hope you like them. Send me a comment I would love to know what you think.
The last image of four circles (love circles at the moment) are by artists that have taken art workshops in my studio. They took home this work and ink prepared surfaces along with ideas and cutouts to make more in their own time.
I enjoy cutting out images, giving them texture and light to alter them further. I made a little instagram video of the two in the tree but unfortunately it was cut a little short. I’m still learning. If you go on instagram enter my name and you should be able to see and hear it as I have a gorgeous Carly Simon song accompanying it.
A gorgeous Summer day in Melbourne for Australia Day. I spent it in the National Gallery Victoria doing a drop in drawing class in their garden. About 50 adults and children were encouraged to draw from the beautiful Henry Moore sculpture that was in front of us. We had fabulous views of the fly by planes that were doing their routine manouvers – which were pretty amazing.
I missed the parade however we saw lots of people in saris, scottish pipers walking by, people wearing Australian flags on the top of their heads, performers of chinese origin and so much more. Our drawing instructor was encouraging us to draw weird and that weird was the go when suddenly a plane flew by us upside down.
