9 Bird Lovers

Antipodean Art Exhibition in Carlton.

You are invited to attend an Art Exhibition on Tuesday Night August 16th at Steps Gallery in Carlton (near Trades Hall).  See details below for more information and please note it is only on for 8 days.  I have three limited edition images that I will be showing which will be available framed or unframed, plus a very special collaboration with Artist /Woodcarver Nikos Siouzos of a woman in a traditional Greek Costume and the man in a Pontian Greek Costume. If you are in Melbourne please drop in and have a look.  I have met some very interesting artists and seen some wonderful work that I think you will enjoy in this exhibition.

The exhibition is supported by The Greek-Australian Cultural League of Melbourne.

Month 2 rio olympics

Rio Olympics baby swimmer.

This is month 2 of Mason’s life.  So far he has been a flying superhero and now he is an Olympic Swimmer.  10 more months (one per month) of silly, surreal images to create.  Photographs and digital work assembled on photoshop.  Month 2 rio olympics

My first wood carving sculpture of a bird.

It took lots and lots of hours to make.  If anyone wanted to buy it I would sell it for one million dollars.  I joke.  I decided to make another bird but a little different.  I need to learn so much so repetition and refining will help.

This is Frank making stunning work.

Blue and white still life, abstract and a stairwell.

The beautiful stairwell is from the Mail Exchange in Melbourne.  It is a historic building from the 1800’s that was open to the public this weekend.  Sorry about the colour which although the stairwell was flooded with light my camera decided to make it a rich cadmium yellow.  The beautiful still life is by Jan Wright.  Jan has been taking regular classes with me in still life painting.  Our first few paintings were completed within two sittings however this one took several more.  Well worth it I think.

I was fiddling with paper cutouts for assemblage and this is what I came up with – textures and pops of colour.   It sort of reminds me of a roll of fruit pastiles or lifesaver sweets in the roll – but abstract.

Bird sculpture in wood but still learning.

I am still a novice and taking the wood carving sessions very slow.  I used a band saw on Friday and felt great.  Loved the power.  Still working on the bird.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t snap the tail or the beak off.  Picture of Mason my Grandson at just under four weeks of age.  XXxX

Silly surreal digital baby image.

My beautiful Grandson Mason is 14 days old today.  I am including him in some of my art.  I made a selection of announcement cards from vintage found greeting cards e.g. One month old, Did I tell you my name yet?, I need cuddles.  I decided to do a silly funny digital with Mason as the star – one a month for his first twelve months.  See the superhero as number one.

Paintbrushes needed for Northern Territory.

This would be for Australia only as we have just three weeks to collect and deliver them.

Can you help out a remote community in the Northern Territory?
Paintbrushes old and new needed
Gurindji Project Paintbrushes.

The Gurindji people live in the remote Northern Territory town , called Kalkaringi, 800 kms south west of Darwin, nearest biggest town is Katherine 400 kms away.

A converted small power station was refurbished to become an Art Space from the proceeds of selling the book “From Little Things Big Things Grow” which is the story based on their Freedom Walk 50 years ago this August. Penny Smith an Art teacher from Queensland went to help set the Art Space up five years ago and is still there. A call has gone out for paintbrushes, new or used. My friend Galia will be travelling there on 5th August to deliver them.
This is a very small community of 600 people with very few facilities/materials and or things to do. Well done Penny Smith you are amazing.
Delivery of Brushes
I am happy to receive them here in Alphington (annewarrenart@gmail.com) for address. Another drop off point is Cambridge Studio Gallery in Cambridge Street Collingwood.  You can look their Gallery hours up and deliver there if it suits better.
Timeline: Just three weeks. Must pass them on by Monday 25th July.
Thankyou and happy hunting – Anne Warren
