UPCOMING SHOW: The Polygon Project - Tasmania.
The Polygon Project is a show curated by Laura E. Kennedy featuring 30 female artists from around the world. Each artist was provided with an identical polygon-shaped panel, and it's interesting to see how each artist has used the unusual shape.
I painted some eucalyptus from a piece I keep in my studio, and had to include one of my favourite wrens. It is a male Superb Blue Fairywren in its 'eclipse' plumage - which is how they look before they turn blue to attract the females. Their character is far more mild at this stage.
White Ribbon Day is the 25th of November, and 50% of sales go towards the Anti-Domestic Violence Charity. Pieces will be available for purchase online from November 1st, as well as in person at the exhibition, which runs from November 4th - 13th, at Sidespace Gallery at the Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart. The official opening is from 5-7pm Friday November 4th, and the show will be opened by White Ribbon Ambassador David O'Byrne.
