I have spent the last 2 days tidying my gallery and storage shed and getting the 'Suburban Goddesses' installed for the opening on the 20th.
Susan arrived with her beautiful handmade books most of which are made with Japanese papers that she has collected on her many trips there. She also bought with her several of Jennifer McDuff's fabulous art journals. These journals tell the story of Jennifer's creative journey in a most interesting way. There is page after page of interesting writing punctuated with numerous sketches.
It is very generous of Jennifer to allow this insight into her works.
Catherine McCue will be adding to the selection of handmade books, as will Clinton and Brad and I.
Clinton has made a book of drawings and paintings by the talented Ryan Nazzari. We are all very keen to see these artworks in the flesh, having developed an interest in Ryan's work over the internet.
Most of the books showing will be for display only. I believe Ryan's works will be available for purchase....be quick!!!!
