This month is huge for me because I’m doing two solo shows and two group shows. That’s a lot of paintings!
My first show opened at Karen 19 Contemporary Artspace on the Gold Coast. It was called An Unbeatable Waste of Time and I had fourteen pieces in it. The opening was well attended and the staff of the gallery is fantastic. The owner is Terri Lew and she’s super cool. I really like working with them.
There was also a mention about the show in the Australian Art Review and in The Cove Magazine. Stoked!
I am also participating in a group show called Petits Travaux that is on now at the Retrospect Gallery in Byron Bay. Artists were invited to submit nine 25cm x 25cm pieces that would be shown in a square. I did two sets of them although the gallery only has put one on their website. I don’t normally show paintings at this gallery, but I loved the theme of the show and was happy to participate. The other artists have some pretty amazing work too and I can see how many people would love group shows. It’s always cool to see what other people come up with when you have a common theme.
I am also opening a show at the end of the month at Artpiece Gallery in Mullumbimby. It’s called Rascals, Urchins and Scallywags. I’m really excited about it and I’m working on a few more pieces this week so I’ll post them when they are done.
And on December 1 I’m particpating in a group show called Homage to Hollywood. I’m really excited about that one too because I get to go back up to Karen 19 again. I’m also really looking forward to seeing what the other artists have done and how they interpreted the theme!
