Recently I've been quite preoccupied with arrangements and studio time in preparation for this upcoming exhibition in Paddington, Brisbane.
With my studio underneath Percolator Gallery in Paddington its a pleasure to be planning a show for the upstairs Gallery... due to open in 2 weeks time ... from Feb 13th to 24th. Opening night kicks off at 6pm, Thursday, 14th of February. Today I've finished lining up all the presenters for the two dialogue evenings and have posted on the website where I will add updates and more info re speakers.
ALSO watch the Homage to the Seed Facebook Page for updates over the next few weeks. If you want to make an outing of it and cant make the evening events note that the daytime cafes nearby are wonderful and I am keen to have you come visit and share a coffee from across the road or make cups of tea in the gallery!
Being in the gallery from midday to 5 pm over ten days is a prime opportunity for cups of tea and good conversation. Even if we haven't met come and introduce yourself... galleries are perfect places for connection and conviviality!
