I’ve been really slack lately in updating you about my own art practice. I’ve been so busy promoting the great work of the organisations I’ve been doing workshops with I completely forgot to mention what I’m up to. It’s hard to remember to blow your own trumpet sometimes when there’s such a beautiful orchestra of people out there making their own music.
I’m currently in a show which opened last night in Canberra, Australia. Twitter Art Exhibit 2018 is being held in Strathnairn Arts Gallery and is curated by Kylie Fogarty. Postcard sized artworks are donated by global artists with 100% of the proceeds going to a local charity. This year it’s the turn of Pegasus Riding for the Disabled to benefit from the sale. In 2016-2017 Pegasus delivered more than 2600 riding sessions for people with a disability in the Canberra region. Twitter Art Exhibit is now in its 8th year and is getting bigger every year. Last year the exhibition was held in Stratford Upon Avon and raised more than £24000 for a charity in the UK so I’m really hopeful that Pegasus will benefit massively from the generosity of all involved in this year’s exhibition.
I can’t remember for the life of me what I entered for this show because I mailed it so long ago. Sometimes it’s nice to forget because it’s a nice surprise to discover my art in the photographs have been taken at the gallery. I love looking through the thousands of pictures that other artists have donated. With the artworks being so small it’s interesting to see what other people have done with the restricted parameters. There’s some amazing talent on show at Twitter Art Exhibit. Once they’re sold, they’re gone so if you’re in the area it’s worth seeing sooner rather than later. The exhibition runs until 29th April but don’t worry if you’re not in Australia. This is the Twitter Art Exhibit so you can follow the exhibition on Twitter HERE, and on Facebook HERE and via their website HERE. If you see my art then please let me know!
