Art performance – what’s that?

I’ve done a few art performances with the #toomanywords crew now, and you’ll be pleased to hear we have another one planned!

An art performance is one done out in a public place, to enable anyone to see the work behind our art – we normally stay in our studios working away in private, but here we bare our souls, and let you in to the joy of creation.

On 17th November, we will be at the newly opened West Gippsland Arts Centre in Warragul, helping them celebrate at their opening festival http://www.wgac.com.au

We will be performing a sculpture in clay – and we would like to invite you to take part on it! Come along and see what’s happening, and make a figure to add to our sculpture. No experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm!!

Radio Radio

Slightly daunted about being interviewed by Bec Symons on ABC Radio Gippsland on 7th August 2018. It’s just a conversation about my life and my art, so hey, what could go wrong?

I’ve picked out 6 songs to play that resonate with me – each one has a story behind it, and they are pretty good tunes too!

I’ll be talking about my Art and what inspires me, where I have come from, and where I think I am going…and I’ve chosen 6 songs that have stories behind them for your entertainment.
 
Hoping it will be an interesting experience for me – and for you!
Gulgong conference – slip painting with Mr Lee

Clay Gulgong

Just returned home from the ClayGulgong conference and was honoured to be selected to exhibit my sculptural piece ‘Stream of Knowledge’ in the Emerging Artists/World Stage exhibition curated by Marta Donaghey Head Curator of the Contemporary Ceramics Centre, London. It was a pleasure to be amongst my peers, mentors and those who I admire greatly.

Meet the Maker

Open Studios West Gippsland is almost upon us again! April 7 & 8th 2018 is the date – from 10am to 5pm all weekend the artists will be opening their studio doors to welcome you. There will be demonstrations, displays of work and insights in the way we work and how we get our inspiration.

Most of the studios are not generally open to the public – so it’s like a private insight into our lives. Come along and be part of it.

For full information go to for a downloadable map and information on the artists. On the day, you pay $5 at the first studio which gives you access to all studios, all weekend. This is a self guided tour, but the map is really good!

I will be showing my ceramic sculptures, and I have lots of new domestic ware in the making – but not yet fired. There will be a display of painting and sculpture and I’ll show you around the wood fired kiln and explain how it works. Look forward to seeing you all…
