Mel and I have been busy looking through all the wonderful submissions of georgous work! We were initially worried that we may not have many…and then, in the last 48 hours, phew…..well let’s say, it’s interesting to see how people timetable their lives. Me, I’m not a last minute girl- it’d stress me out too much – I need to know I have some breathing space in case it all turns pear shaped. Other people thrive on the last minute dash. Mel, well she tends to give herself a lot more thinking time, and then gets it all done with minutes to spare….Anyway, as the submission date came to a close, we had a few hard decisions to make, as there was only so much work we could squeeze into our intimate space! A big thank you to everyone who took the time to submit an application. Mel and I are sure there will be other opportunities for exhibitions at the space in the future. We’ve accepted a total of 17 artists (from Sydney, Japan and Melbourne) and when I have a bit more time, I’ll put up some more info and some images.
The next big event for our little studio, is the Danks St Festival. We’re busy working out how we’re going to make the best opportunity from the estimated 25,000 people that are supposed to come through the complex on Sunday 25th October. It sounds like a great (if possibly exhausting) day!
