Tonight the Murrurundi Art Show opens 6pm at the RSL Hall so I hope all my local blog readers will be able make an appearance and enjoy seeing the fantastic efforts of our local creatives. Huge thanks to our generous sponsor Peter Norvill who stumps up the $2000 first prize. If you can't make it tonight the exhibition will also be open next weekend.
I entered 4 works - a miniature, a large painting in the Oil/Acrylic section and 2 garments in the Fibre/Textiles. Rodney also entered 4 works.
We have a fabulous workshop coming up on the weekend of May 17-18th. Sandra Pearce is an enormously talented Queensland printmaker who will be our tutor for 2 days of instruction in gelatin printmaking. The workshop samples will be done on paper but the techniques can also be done on fabric. You just need to use textile paint instead of inks. Heres some examples of Sandras exquisite monoprints done by the technique we'll be learning.
Visit Sandras website for more images....www.sandrapearce.com.au ....though I don't think you'll need much more convincing how wonderful the work is. This workshop is incredibly cheap at $70 for the 2 days because the Arts Council is subsidising her visit. It is limited to 12 places so get in quickly by phoning Love Appleby at 0431 398833 to book your place and get the requirements lists.
Personally, I'm very excited! see you there....
