Now Playing: flats & the friendly few - this man's junk (single)
Wow. Almost a month without an update. Anyone would think I'd moved house...
But I haven't yet. Well, not properly. I'm currently staying with my friend Mat as I sold my bed two Saturdays ago, and I've been packing and sorting and garage-sale-ing and exhibiting and all manner of other things.
Unsensored09 and Corangamarah Art Prize have both been and gone.
The opening of Unsensored09 was very enjoyable, catching up with other Silver Miners and also with a friend I randomly ran into about a month or so ago whom I hadn't seen for about 10 years, and meeting his lovely wife.
The opening of Corangamarah Art Prize at Otway Estate Winery & Brewery was also a great night. Meeting those behind the prize, being interviewed briefly for the Colac Herald, and being totally spoilt by attentive staff ensuring I got enough vegetarian fare during the course of the evening. The food was absolutely delicious.
The work in both exhibitions was very strong and I was pleased to see my work hanging alongside Simone Maynard's again this year, and also Samantha Everton's work, another Melbourne-based photographer I greatly admire.
Despite my initial intentions of these two exhibitions being my last in Melbourne and surrounds for a while, I'll have three prints on display in Brunswick Street Gallery's Picture This '09 exhibition opening at 6pm on 11 September 2009 and running to 24 September, and Mark is holding a number of my prints in his storeroom ready for a new display room to be opened in the gallery in a few months.
And my plans for overseas travels in 2010 are coming along nicely :D
As you might imagine, with all the upheaval of my impending move I haven't had much time to edit new images, though I have been shooting, but above is a new self-portrait I took last weekend in Jessica Tremp's backyard before setting off for James & Jo's wedding.
Hopefully we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming in September!
oh... and this dress? one of two new favourites from my soon-not-to-be-local-op-shop. each dress was only $6.99! i'll miss that place *sob*
