Carmen has made a flying start to the New Year with her painting ‘Silence in the Landscape’ being selected for The Touring Exhibition of the 2014 Queensland Regional Art Awards, a Flying Arts Alliance Inc initiative. Carmen and I were able to attend the opening at the Judith Wright Centre, Brisbane early this month, where Carmen’s painting along with several others sold at the conclusion of the opening, topping off a great weekend. Curator Dr Lisa Chandler, University of the Sunshine Coast preceded the opening with a lecture and this was followed by an opening speech by the Governor Paul de Jersey, AC,QC.  Congratulations to all the artists who had work selected. If you are in Brisbane, the exhibition will be at the Judith Wright Centre until 28th February 2015. The exhibition will then be travelling to Atherton (31st March – 3rd May), Texas (19th May – 26th June), Chinchilla (10th July – 1st October) and concluding it’s travels ain Hinchinbrook (20th November – 9 January 2016).

Cheers Joanne

    Congratulations Carmen on your win and place in the tour ! Well deserved.

    I was luckily enough to be able to attend the exhibition opening at teh Judith Wright Centre, and spend time in front of all the exhibits. I was very impressed, and thoroughly enjoyed the works and the thoughtfully curated exhibition. The lighting of the works was specactular , definitely worth a visit to the Judith Wright Centre to see the works in real life.

    But if you cannot get along , here is the link to the on line gallery. Be warned though – they painting are far far more impressive in real life.

    Looking forward very much to viewing more of your works at your joint exhibition at the Percolator Gallery from the 17 March.

      Hi Katrina, Thanks for the lovely comments. Joanne and I are looking forward to the exhibition as well, though frantically busy getting our work finished and ready to hang.
