I have been selected as a finalist in the Rene Carcan International Prize for Printmaking. The exhibition for all those of us shortlisted will be in Bruxelles at the beginning of 2016. This caps off what has been an exceptional year for me.
My linocut ‘Doing The Apocalypse Boogie’ was one of the 55 shortlisted from 175 entries in the Australian Print Triennial prize. The exhibition opens on October 29 and runs till November 1 at the Art Vault, Mildura.
‘The Lost Quilt’ has been shortlisted for the Silk Cut Award. It will be exhibited at the Glen Eira City Council Gallery (Caulfield Town Hall) from September 5 until September 2015.
My linocut ‘Lost (Green)’ is amongst the 45 works shortlisted for the Geelong Print Award. It will be exhibited in the Geelong Gallery from August 22 until November 22.
I am exhibiting 3 works in the Southern Highlands Printmakers group show ‘Exchange’. It runs from July 26 until September 20 at the Sturt Gallery, Mittagong & afterwards it travels to the Megalo Gallery in Canberra.
The Winter 2015 issue of Imprint features a review of my recent Megalo exhibition written by Alison Alder and one of the highlights from that show is on the cover. Needless to say I’m mighty chuffed!
Several of my linocuts will be showing at the Kerrie Lowe Gallery from May 29 till June 16.
A version of my ‘Lost’ image has been chosen for this years Print Council of Australia’s print commission. There’s a little bit of money involved but it’s the exposure for my work that I’m most excited about. My linocut will be exhibited in all the capital cities around Australia as well as feature in various publications including ‘Imprint’.
Some critical acclaim, a good crowd & a few sales. What more can you ask from at an opening.
I have been shortlisted for the Print Council of Australia’s 2015 Print Commission. There were 18 chosen from 118 applications. 10 works will selected so I guess I’ve got roughly a 50/50 chance now. Here’s hoping.
