Xtinction Xhibition

I have entered a competition, the brainchild of  by Ali Griffin from Three Stories and Artist's Lounge. It is 'a contemporary Art Prize inviting artists to explore the concept of extinction...to people, places,things,flora and fauna' and runs from 23 February to 24 March. There are two prizes courtesy of Healesville Sanctuary, a cash prize of 500 smakaroonies and a residency at the Sanctuary which includes one months accommodation at the Coranderrk Bush Hut. Uber exciting!
Ali provided us with a very practical checklist too with little boxes to tick.

  • 'Call for Entry' form and entry fee by 8 February                           TICK
  • Delivery of artwork on 16 February                                              TICK
  • Labelled on back with title, medium, name and contact details        TICK
  • Ready for hanging                                                                         TICK
Sitting to blog, I see the glaring omission on the checklist, the most obvious dot point to any creative soul, so obvious, in fact that it doesn't even warrant being on the checklist....
  • Catalogue work, record image....take a picture!                           DOH!
Have to wait until Friday at the opening to tick that box then...

Back to life in the studio

Last post was on the 28 December 2012....Bunting for Amanda and Paul's wedding. I am going to view the photos on Monday and will plaster as many as I think tolerable all over my blog after that.  Feels like an eon ago but I have just been having a ball on holiday with the boys (and without them, when they went off with their cousins for a week and I was left all alone!)
AND that's when the seeds were planted....ripped the studio apart during the holidays and thought I might blog about it's revival but discovered that I hadn't the will after carting building materials up and down to make amends.

It looks the business now though and now I am up for a few more workshops.
