Manningham Arts and Creative Industries Small Fellowship

 

I am pleased to announce that I am a recent recipient of a Manningham Arts and Creative Industries Small Fellowship.

Denise Keele-bedford’s fellowship aims to extend her Boat Project, which has engaged the subject of migration and travel through installations of multiple origami boats in New York State, China, Korea and Melbourne. Her fellowship will explore how to translate these forms into a sculpture that can be installed at a number of outdoor sites across Manningham. The fellowship will provide a stepping-stone for Keele-bedford to work in new formats, with different materials and at a larger scale than she has previously.

World Environment Day

Today is World Environment Day, Friday 5th June. During our isolation time much of our Earth has been celebrating, undertaking some healing showing us the outcomes. Clear waters in the Canals of Venice, Views to the Himalayas that had been hidden in smog, a decline in Greenhouse gases and wild animals roaming city streets are just some of the positive results of us staying indoors.

As the sun shines outside, though, it is difficult to not want to be out there engaging with nature.

I reminisce about making artwork in the great outdoors and celebrate today with posting an artwork from Flinders Island. One day I walked to a rise and stood overlooking a vast stretch of white sand. The stunning view was like and immense canvas just waiting for interaction.

Spiral from the Sea is the result of spending time on that vast canvas of sand, walking barefoot and feeling the coolness under my feet.

 

Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fundraising Exhibition – Destruction, Beauty & Hope

It has been heartbreaking to watch as the devastating bushfire crisis continues, therefore Montsalvat has decided to offer support in the form of a special fundraising exhibition entitled ’Destruction, Beauty & Hope’ to try and raise much needed funds for the appeal.

Montsalvat have invited artists to donate artworks for the exhibition with 100% of the sale of these artworks being donated to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal and have received an overwhelming response. Montsalvat will also be supporting the exhibition with a special opening in the Long Gallery on 1st February (2-4pm). All of which will go directly to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal and 100% of these donated funds will go directly to communities in need

Walter and Denise have donated artworks in support of the appeal. You are encouraged to attend the Opening and/or visit the exhibition until 6th March.
