Artist week ending 6 April 2014

Monday saw me delivering mine and fellow artist's work to the Lavender Bay Gallery for the "Interiors" exhibition that opened on the Friday (see invitation from last week's post).  Always lovely to catch up with artists and their art, and they make you feel very welcome at the Royal Art Society.

Tuesday, I helped man the display at Winston Hills Shopping Centre for Parramatta Art Society. I believe over a dozen paintings were sold there during the week.

Wednesday, Julie Simmons and I gave a talk to members of the Castle Hill Art Society about "Social Media for Artists". Despite some technical glitches, it was well recieved - Julie and I making a great tag team sharing our knowledge and acquired experience of self promotion in todays internet driven world.

Thursday was teaching a couple of classes of printmaking & claywork and then a catch up with a lovely artist friend at Bank Bazaar, Richmond.

Friday, attended the opening at the Royal Art Society

Saturday, not one but 2 openings! The Ferry Artists Gallery opened their newest exhibition, with a marvelous mix of works from members.

And then Purple Noon Gallery was a show I just had to attend also, as I adore both the sculptures of
Lucy McEachern and the linocuts of Vida Pearson.

Maybe Sunday was my day of rest, because apart from the morning visit to the studio before church, all I did art business wise was pick up my unsold work from Winston Hills.

Pretty full week I reckon. Two paintings worked on this week, one of them on paper instead of canvas for a change.

Next Week: Going to the Sydney Royal Easter Show Arts Preview, a look forward to annual event. And then maybe finish some of the many half done paintings I have vying for my attention.
