Tactility - an upcoming exhibition

I am very excited to announce the new upcoming exhibition 'Tactility' to be shown at Painters Gallery Mona Vale from 1-14 May 2012. Tactility will showcase the new pieces that I have been developing this year as well as the work of the amazing artists Lisa Rodden and Karen (Blue) Stuart. I am so excited to work with these amazingly talented and professional ladies for this show and we are lucky to exhibit in the painters gallery's beautiful (and considerably larger) new exhibition space (11/20 Bungan St Mona Vale).

let me introduce you to the work of the other two lovely ladies I will be sharing the show with. 

Lisa Rodden is an emerging artist who is currently working with the medium of hand cut paper. Her work is breathtakingly beautiful and delicate and has to be seen to be believed. Her approach to paper cut art is unique and incorporates curled and folded paper to give her work a three-dimentionality and hand painted areas that provide splashes of colour. Lisa's work has been profiled in the current Home Beautiful magazine showing her studio space and artmaking process. Check out more of Lisa's art at her website: 

Karen (Blue) Stuart is another emerging artist who works with ceramics. She is fresh out of art school and only starting her journey as an artist but she is in high demand and with any luck has a hugh future ahead of her in the arts. We were lucky to snag her for this show and are excited to exhibit her beautiful hand built ceramic work. 

As usual the show will have a silent auction to raise funds for the charity organisation 'Protect our Coral Sea'. This organization's goal is to establish a world class, highly protected marine park in the coral sea to preserve this wonderful and delicate environment. Each artist will donate an artwork for the silent auction and all visitors to the gallery will have the chance to bid on the pieces - highest bidder wins the work. This is a great opportunity to support a great cause and perhaps snag yourself a beautiful unique artwork. 

It is going to be a great show so I hope that you can all make it and support us. For more information about the show contact me ( or the Painters Gallery (Diego or Rachel - 9997 6607)
