Article for the Newsmail
I sent the Newsmail an article about the exhibition at gallery39 . Catherine and I put down some words yesterday, and Susan took some pictures. Carol Seeger rang from Hervey Bay today to see how things were going.
We had a visit yesterday by some ladies from Arts Qld who were reviewing venues for the 'Artspoken' conference in October. They loved the work in the gallery and 3 pieces were purchased.
I dropped in to see Clinton and find out what was happening about the show he is thinking of curating for my new revamped gallery..'Dirty Linen' when it opens in October. He has some interesting ideas. If you are an artist interested in drawing, contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your information to Clinton.
I really want my fellow artists to pursue the curating of their own shows. While it is good to be part of various curated group exhibitions, sometimes the random nature of such a variety of themes undermines our own voice.
As artists it we owe it to ourselves to say what is necessary.
Talk soon. C x
