13 May-11July 2021- WYNDHAM ART PRIZE
I was so surprised & excited that my painting 'Winter Reading was selected as a FINALIST in the 2021 Wyndham Art Prize this year.
The Wyndham Art Gallery is in Werribee and I attended the Opening along with many others in an enjoyable celebration of art and appreciation of being together, something which we hadn't been able to do for a while due to the many outbreaks and COVID restrictions. There was some amazing contemporary art in evidence and I was just thrilled to be among them and part of this fabulous exhibition.
4 August - 'CAPTURED' My Solo Exhibition @artgalleryonovens
My exhibition was hung today with the help of three wonderful ladies - big thank you to Sian, Joan & Jo for their assistance. I was so relieved after months of planning and constant painting and trying to dry the oil paint that the work is now in the gallery. Despite our new lockdown of regional Victoria to stage 3 restrictions, I plan to work in the gallery and hopefully some wonderful supporters of art will find themselves coming into the gallery to view & enjoy my work.
I am really looking forward to my solo exhibition and hope to welcome you all to the gallery.
