'Endurance' final days & Commendation Prize, Banyule Award for Works on Paper

Thanks so much to everyone who has visited my solo exhibition Endurance at Megalo Print Studio & Gallery (21 Wentworth Ave, Kingston, Canberra). In case any of you are still keen to get there - the exhibition is now in its final days, ending this Saturday Sept 21. Megalo is open 9.30am - 5pm Tues - Sat. The work was inspired by the elemental power and personal significance of Guerilla Bay, Yuin Country (South Coast, NSW). The exhibition has received a thoughtful and supportive review from respected critic Sasha Grishin.

In other news, my large-scale pencil and monotype work Verge 2 recently received the Commendation Prize in the the Banyule Award for Work on Paper and will remain on display at Hatch Contemporary Art, Melbourne until Oct 19. Verge 2 was part of a series made in response to the shoreline erosion that I encountered while walking and kayaking around the perimeter of Lake Victoria, Gippsland. My work is also included in the Fremantle Print Award, Fremantle Arts Centre, Western Australia, which opens this week (19 Sept - 10 Nov).
