Last Days

IMG_0175

A huge thanks to everyone who has been down to the Ksubi Mild Manners artspace and checked out my current exhibition. It has been a great past couple of weeks with lots of really positive comments from folks on my exhibition. Apparently heaps of people have been into the Ksubi gallery space to look at the show. So much so that while the exhibition was due to close this weekend, Mild manners and Ksubi have asked to keep the show open for another week.

So my exhibition ‘How Memories Are Made’ is now open for an extra week, every day 10am – 6pm until Sunday 7th July

Many of the works hanging are still available for purchase with only one or two editions fully selling out. Regardless of that, I’m more interested in folks just checking out my woodcuts and possibly getting something out of the art I love making. When it’s all done and dusted, maybe I’ll go home and learn how to play guitar…

Tonight Live…

Everything is up on the walls and we’re ready to rock n roll (so to speak).

I even got a nice bit of coverage on page 9 in today’s daily newspaper The Courier Mail.

And I should mention that where as the exhibition is running for the next few weeks, the limited hand-made artist books and the vinyl I have made (scroll down the page to see them) will only be available from me tonight at the opening. So if you come along, hit me up!

Thanks and I’ll see you later on!

It’s been a few years between solo art shows but thankfully due to that, I have a few years of artwork that I will be showing as part of this show.
More details will be coming along in the next few days but until then you will find a portion of what’s on display over on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/againstthewoodgrain

Firstly a quick thank you to all the terrific folks who came along to the Wasted Dream group art show over the last week and checked out not only my prints but all the great artwork on display. My good friend Murdoch absolutely killed it with some of his new drawings. There were two of them that were my favourites!

Here’s what I had on display…

So last night we pulled down that show and tonight there’s something a little different happening across town.

My friends at Mild Manners are making the Ksubi artspace in Fortitude Valley their new home for 2013 and they’re kicking off proceedings with a group show (check it out here or here) and publication launch (care of Small House Books) tonight from 6pm. I’m in said publication and you can pick up a free copy at the show or if you keep your eye out, probably around town.

The reason for my inclusion is that I’m going to be having a solo show at the Ksubi artspace soon and so this is a nice little lead into that. I’ll be sure to put up full details of my show once it’s all ready to roll! Until then, Maybe I’ll see you tonight, maybe I’ll see you round town…
