Art in April

I've been very forgetful lately - sending the wrong photos to gallery submissions, confusion over what paintings are available and in what gallery, forgetting to deliver paintings to a show. If I actually looked in my diary every other day - I would not have this problem.

I like to think of myself as organised - I keep a spreadsheet of paintings - where they are, where they've been, where they sold.  I try and keep a photo file of all works and have recently been getting work professionally digitised for future projects. A folder is currently updated with future exhibition and competition information.
But these things fall flat of course if I dont diligently check, update and look at the diary regularly!

There are a few things happening this month.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show 12 - 24 April is a highlight in my year - the inner child loves an agricultural show - and this one has a brilliant arts and crafts display. Preview night is always fun to catch up with other artist friends.

This year I will again be demonstrating my painting style at the Derivan Stand (Saturday 13 & 20 April) so if you are about come say hi.

"Seeing/Being - 6 Hawkesbury Artists" is a show at my local gallery Purple Noon Gallery - it is showcasing six Hawkesbury Artists and opening on Thursday 18th April (viewing from the 13th)... and opened by the very excellent Dan Kyle.

For a special Mother's Day Promotion I will be demonstrating painting flowers at Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre. To get a seat, I suggest you book (free) through their system.

And to keep you posted - I am once again honoured to be included in the next group exhibition at Rochfort Gallery, North Sydney

Enjoy the rest of April as will I.  🌸
