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.

Sir Humprey and the Nillumbik Prize

Australian Terrier by Pauline Dewar

After a lengthy delay I am delighted to say we have a happy, healthy son/grandson, Ted, and all are well.

We are back to work and will soon post some colourful new works, both drawing, painting and some textiles.

In the meantime we have a painting of Sir Humphrey, a terrier with attitude.

The Bendigo Easter Show was delightful, such a beautiful venue, and “The Known World” found a new home.

This week is the Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art 2021, where we are showing “The Flight of the Bogong Moths” in keeping with the theme of Return. It is held at Montsalvat Gallery, Eltham, and promises to be a beautiful exhibition.
