Breathing Space 2

'The Way Home' by Christine Turner,
Acrylic Collage 
150cm x 150cm

The 'Breathing Space 2' exhibition in Brisbane is finally over and has been quite successful in many ways. We had good sales and very positive responses to the show.  I have attached a few photos below.   

I would really like to thank Keith and Trevor for the work they did setting up  and later dismantling the exhibition.  They were brilliant!!  Their enthusiasm and willingness to get the job done was truly wonderful.  No task was ever too hard!  

I think I speak for all of us in saying that this exhibition reached a standard that we can be  quite proud of.

One of my favourite works in this show was Keith Stewart's award winning photograph, 'Gum Trees-Study 1, Tasmania'.
This is black and white in all it's glory, capturing the essence of the landscape. 

The glass cabinet, above was just perfect for displaying Trevor Spohr's beautiful ceramic bowls along with John Olsen's curious 'Infernal Axis'

 Four little gems by Susan Hutton

Above: An enchanting landscape   by Jennifer McDuff inspired  by a recent trip to Japan. Below the landscape, another of Jennifer's haunting shelf paintings.

Above:  A row of ceramic cups with saucers. Superbly glazed by Trevor Spohr.  On the wall, Susan Hutton's Elegant encaustic wax works, which were very popular-also inspired by several trips to Japan.

Below, Ophelia and friend grace the walls. (Acrylic on canvas)  100cm w x 150cm h)

Below, Jennifer McDuff's gouache 'drawings' on brown paper bags captivated many. 

Below, a Hammerhead Shark by retired fisherman John Olsen.

Beautiful metallic glazed ceramic towers by Trevor Spohr.  These were
snapped up very quickly to add to an important collection.

I arrived home very tired as I spent a good while speaking to realestate agents and viewing properties to see what the market is like in Brisbane at present.  I hope to sell my home here in Bundaberg soon and find a home in Brisbane.  It seems that it is a sellers market to me and houses close to Brisbane's CBD are selling rapidly.

I am so keen to take my work in a new direction this coming year.  It's hard to be patient. Cx
