‘Still Emerging’ Group Exhibition, 9 – 13 September 2015

STILL EMERGING is the 2015 Annual Intergenerational Art Exhibition put on by the Inner West Women’s Shed of which I am a member. The inaugural exhibition last year was a great success and I’m sure this year will be too with its diverse range of interesting work by mainly local artists. Today I delivered 5 of my artworks (some watercolours and a linocut print) to the gallery in readiness for the opening night from 6 – 8pm this Wednesday, 9 September 2015. I also took along 2 entries for my sister Janice Neal, who lives in Canberra, and is entering 2 of her fascinating 3-D abstract crochet sculptures in the exhibition this year. We are hoping to get as many people along as possible for the opening this Wednesday night so please drop in if you can for a drink and to meet the artists. The exhibition will run every day from Wednesday 9 September till, and including, Sunday 13 September, and the gallery hours are 11am – 5pm.

‘Liquid Life’ Exhibition Opening Night Success!

Tuesday 1 September, was the opening night for LIQUID LIFE, a joint exhibition with my cousin and Central Coast artist, Tracey Scheitel at the Shorethyme Restaurant & Gallery at Norah Head on the NSW Central Coast. The evening was a great success with a big crowd attending for the opening drinks and following dinner.

Tracey and I have very contrasting styles so having my artwork displayed altogether in one room of the restaurant and all of Tracey’s in the adjoining room worked out to be a really good way of displaying all our work.

Despite our artwork looking quite different, to tie everything together this exhibition has been inspired by the theme of water – Liquid Life – in our daily lives and all around us and includes watercolours, acrylics, pencil drawings, linocuts and mixed media.

The exhibition will be showing from 1 – 13 September 2015 at Shorethyme Restaurant & Gallery at 9 Mitchell Street, Norah Head on the NSW Central Coast, 4396 4507. Gallery hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 2pm (till restaurant closes in the evening), 9 – 4pm on Sundays.
