The latest creation came off the hook yesterday.
The Retail Reef, 2010.
Discarded Plastic shopping bags.
This piece is being entered in the Border Art Prize. A local art prize open to artists from the surrounding shires. The finalists will be exhibited at the Tweed River Regional Gallery. Hopefully it will get in........ fingers crossed.
I managed to find the sea urchin fossil I mentioned in an earlier post, in the garden. I've had it for a long time and it's really very precious. It needs a special safe position where it can be admired.
Some publishing news for the record......
Green Design, 2010. Braun Publishing. Stuttgart, Germany.
Making Art Connections, Chris Bates, 2010. McGraw Hill. Australia and New Zealand.
Festival of Textile Art and Craft. Ekaterinburg Museum of Folk Art, Russia.
I mention it here so that I don't forget. I'm thrilled to think that my work will be seen in Russia, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. It never ceases to amaze me how the internet makes it possible to make connections across the world
