Me, Me, Someone Else for a change, Me

This came in the mail today and while the Cynical Voice in my head says that blogging this is purely self promotion, I listened to the Warm Fuzzy voice that said it’s good to be good.

The Cynical Voice also said that it doesn’t matter, no one reads your blog anyway…

Anyway, I donated a few prints from the THEY CAME series to help out a worthy cause. I’m not a hero, but it feels nice to be treated like one.

Take THAT Cynical Voice!!

ps. The Cynical Voice also wanted to add that young people almost never say thank you for themselves… So that in itself makes this Blog Worthy.

Opening Night part 2

October 1, 2010

Wow!! What a great night at the opening of C Gallery at Centro 2 on James street.

Troy and his staff did a fantastic job and it was packed. There was live music great food and drink and some great art.

Unfortunately we had to go early, but I snapped off this photo (much to Jean’s dismay)  🙂

The Future is NOW…

September 12, 2010

Just got back from a loooong drive to Toowoomba and back (with no stereo and only Ween’s ‘Mister wont you please help my pony’ going on and on in my head for the entire trip… there is something to be said for not being sober)

Anyway, it was an awesome day and Holy Green Cow has been given a great honour, by having all four works from the ‘They Came‘ series acquired (purchased) by the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery.

Not only that, but they have been chosen for the ‘Crates on Wheels‘ touring exhibition in 2011 !!!!

I had a great chat with the Lord mayor and his wife about Holy Green Cow and art and music.

Special thanks to Sue and everyone at the Gallery. It was a fantastic exhibition and I am really quite blown away.

Openings etc…

August 23, 2010

Thanks to all those that attended the opening on Saturday night (Election night). It was a great night and from the feedback I got, it seems the series was really well recieved.

Was great to chat with Alison Kubler and Walter Stahl too. Alison Opened the exhibition and Walter was another of the artists.

Thanks again to QCP for selecting me and to the staff that made it happen so wonderfully.

It’s up for a month in the window of the QCP, so if you get a chance, check it out with the other great artists on show too.

Warning: the following photos contain self congratulatory themes…

The launch of Holy Green Cow - Drinking white wine... Hmmm... Don't tell anyone.

Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery

August 6, 2010

Just a quick note to share some good news for Holy Green Cow and that is that I was selected for the Finals of the Future Nurture Biennial Emerging Artist Awards Exhibition. (thats a mouthful)

I’m pretty damn excited as this is a brilliant opportunity to get my work to new people that may never have seen my process.

More info as it comes to hand and don’t forget the QCP exhibition starting soon as well as the group show at Martin Galleries in October.

Thanks for all the support, I hope to see you all there!!

Moreton Bay Art Prize Night

May 22, 2010

Just a quick snapshot of Kitty Revenge 2 from last nights Art Prize Opening.

In a field including Carl Warner, I felt pretty stoked to be selected.

It was definitely a night for landscapes though, with virtually all the prizes going to scapes. I guess it pays to research the Judge first.

Also great to see my friend Sam Scoufos pick up a highly commended. Congrats!!
