Exciting times – 6 pieces, 2 exhibitions

Once again it is nearly time for the Linden Postcard Show! It’s a really colourful and happy exhibition held in St Kilda each year. We can’t wait to see our 3 textile pieces in amongst the other wonderful works at Linden New Art.

We also have 3 entries on their way to Gippsland for the EGAG WRAP 2022 Small Artwork Prize, which attracts 300 Australian artists every year. It begins on the second of December and goes right through to the 14th of January. It promises to be a really interesting exhibition.

Seafarers Maritime Art Prize

Dewar Pauline Seadog

Although Victoria is slowly emerging from lockdown, physical exhibitions are still presenting some difficulties.

For this reason the 19th Mission to Seafarers Maritime Art Prize will be virtual this year.

This art prize is an international competition that is usually hosted at the heritage-listed Mission building in Melbourne’s Docklands.

We were absolutely delighted to have the portrait of Danny, called Seadog, shortlisted for the prize, and look forward to the virtual opening on 14th October.

Fulminant Infection Pauline Dewar PJDBotanicalArt

This month I have the belated news that the drawing “Fulminant” was equal first winner of the ACMD St Vincent’s Hospital Art Prize, 2019.

The drawing is of the effects of fulminant infection on the various organs of the body and was created at the insistence of my friend Ray when he was dying of fulminant infection last year.

Unfortunately, he did not live to see the drawing win, but he was vitally interested in the progress of its creation and gratified with the final result.

Miss you Ray.
