My work Shelter has also been lucky enough to not only be selected as a finalist in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, but has also received a high commendation, which means it will be touring to the National Archives of Australia in Canberra for exhibition 21 Sept – 11 Nov 2012! So at least that will keep it out of my lounge room for a couple of months! The Waterhouse Art Prize exhibition will be open until Sunday Sept 9th at the SA Museum 🙂

I have also been fortunate enough to have my work “Shelter” selected as a finalist in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, which will be on exhibit from sat 21st July to Sunday 9th of September along with all sorts of other amazing work, so make sure you go check that out too!
Back in Adelaide after a great weekend in Perth for the opening of “Hatched 2012”, what an experience! I was very impressed with the standard of the other Hatched artists, and the curation of the show.
(Here’s a look at the install of my work “Pelt”, looks so vulnerable in such a large space!)
And also had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of having my work up on a billboard which was pretty exciting (along with the other Hatched artists):
So all in all a great trip, met some great artists, so it was well worth it! So what’s next you ask? Well I’ve been working on some new work for a solo show at Seedling art space, but will also be having a solo show of new and existing work at the Carclew Foyer Gallery in a few weeks (opening date to be confirmed!!) so will be updating again soon 🙂
