Contemporary Works on Paper

Dirty Linen  generated its usual buzz of excitement last Friday night.  There was another great exhibition installed at the artspace.

This time it was Contemporary Works on Paper, curated by Bundaberg artist Clinton Cross.  Interstate and local artists contributed works on paper.  Subject matter was diverse.

Seventy to eighty people attended the opening.  Clinton introduced the artist's works and then the red dots came out!  Over thirty two works were sold.  A brilliant achievement!

Thanks must go to Clinton for curating these exciting exhibitions.  He is already making plans for his next two shows!!

On Sunday, I opened the gallery from 10 -2pm and will be doing this every Sunday excluding public holidays.   I will have a permanent display of the works of established Bundaberg artists.....and. just in time for Xmas, I will be opening the small gallery at the front of Dirty Linen as a shop that will present artistic creations of many types, sculptures, fibre works, ceramics, art cards  and so on.   I hope the shop will be up and running this Sunday.  So look in between 10 and 2.

In the meantime I am formulating  ideas for my art practice in 2013, and will be finishing a large board I will be showing in Brisbane in January.

 Above, three superb drawings by Selwyn Rodda from Clinton Cross's  'Contemporary Works on     Paper' exhibition.

Till soon.  cx
