INSPIRATION WILD: FOUNDATION ARTISTS 6 YEARS ON.
As one of the Foundation Artists involved in the Wildlife Artists’ Museum of Australia (WAMA), I am thrilled to be part of the upcoming WAMA online art exhibition, INSPIRATION WILD: FOUNDATION ARTISTS 6 YEARS ON.
Other Victorian artists of note include Liz Cogley, Mali Moir, Paul Margoscsy Elena Kolutusha, Robert Knight and Glenys Buzza. This online exhibition will showcase new works from the Foundation Artists that show their journeys in art over the past 6 years. Both of my works featured in the exhibition are attached here, of note is 'It's My Nest', the winner of the Drawing Prize in the 17th Kenneth Jack Memorial Drawing Award 2020.
I am available for phone or Zoom interview. Please contact me by email: email@example.com.
INSPIRATION WILD is available for viewing from the 19th October until 30th November at www.wama.net.au/art-exhibition
Kingston Arts is seeking expressions of interest from those who live, work or frequent the Mentone, Parkdale or Mordialloc foreshore to participate in creative consultation workshops with artist Deb McNaughton on a new sculpture which is to be installed along the Bay Trail as part of the Bay Trail Public Art Project later in the year.
This exciting artwork will see a sculptural rainbow featuring a series of individual 3-meter-high galvanised steel posts that create the optical illusion of a colourful rainbow for those walking, driving or riding along or next to the work. The sculpture is a nod to the temporal ‘Rainbow of Hope’ mural Deb recently painted at Shirley Burke Theatre, Parkdale, which received an overwhelming positive response from the local community, as it celebrated the unity and connection demonstrated amongst Kingston residents in the face of social distancing rules. Through the significance of the rainbow as a universal sign of hope, this new sculpture will celebrate words/colours/campaigns/names or imagery important to the community, sought through creative engagement hosted by the artist in November.
Workshops will take place on Saturday 28 November. Time and location: To be advised. Places are limited. Please note the format of these workshops will be determined by the current COVID restrictions closer to the date.
If you would like to be involved, please email through information surrounding your connection to the area along with your full contact details, including a contact phone number to Amelia.Dowling@kingston.vic.gov.au.
If you are unable to attend we're accepting feedback via email. Please send your suggestions for words/colours/campaigns/names/stories or imagery to be included in the artwork to the above email address by 5pm Saturday 28 November.
