Well next week is the opening of an exhibition I’m in titled Printed Matter. The Emporium Newcastle with its old David Jones memories intact is the venue.
As part of the Renew Newcastle project I’m pleased to be participating in what I think is a vital and of course character adding monument to the city. Without the Renew Newcastle incentive this city would be a tired and neglected ruin. By introducing creative and vibrant ideas we now have a fascinating urban space that shuns the boredom of mass production.
But back to our exhibition. As part of the Newcastle Printmakers Association the lovely Amanda Donohue called out for expressions of interest regarding an exhibition in the Project Space of the Emporium. Finding the opportunity too good to refuse I found myself emailing a positive response. And here we are now in November with the exhibition only days away.
Printed Matter will exhibit the work of myself and 4 other wonderful artists. I along with Amanda Donohue, Robyn Culley and Therese Gabriel Wilkins will exhibit works on paper. The remaining artist Lynne Britten is a textile artist printing images onto glorious silk swathes.
So come along and help us celebrate the opening of Printed Matter Saturday 15th November 2pm. Wine and cheese will definitely be on the menu.
