Thank you Tassie
This is the Bay of Fires area that I visited during my residency at Cataract Gorge in Feb/March this year. (Not the shortlisted artwork)
I received an exciting email today advising me that I've been shortlisted as a finalist for the Bay of Fires Art Prize in Tasmania. This is a $20,000 acquisitive prize and my work will be exhibited alongside the other 29 finalists at Gallery Parnella at St Helens, Tasmania, in June, 2013. I am one of six mainlanders selected and the only Queensland artist to be shortlisted for this prize!
Thank you Tassie
Some fantastic news this week. I've been offered an artist reisdency in the Gunyah artist-in-residence program at Port Stephens in May this year.
I'm excited to have been given this opportunity and will use the time to work on two new photographic series, one of which will be exhibited in a solo exhibition in Melbourne in July (more info coming soon), and to experiment with some new techniques.
So this week I'll be packing up all my gear in preparation for my road trip down the the east coast, all the way down to Port Stephens in NSW. I can't wait to arrive at this beautiful location and immerse myself in the region.
I'm excited to announce that the Launceston City Council have offered me a place in their Artist-in-Residence Program. I will be travelling to Tasmania in February for a month long stay in the 120 year old Kings Bridge Gatekeepers Cottage at Cataract Gorge.
I will spend 4 weeks in this idyllic location creating photographic artworks for a project based on the Cataract Gorge region. I plan to stage an exhibition of the works in Tasmania during and after the residency.
I would like to thank Launceston City Council for allowing me this opportunity and for their on-going support and dedication to the arts in Tasmania.
