I was resident photographer for the RAS Artist of the Year opening and what a great day it was at Art at Linden Gate. Julie Fenton was overall winner with Packing Room Prize to to John North and commendations to Anne Saglietti, Kay Tobin and Yvonne de Valle.
Well what a lovely day to celebrate art, the sun was shining, birds were singing their praises, delicious wines were enjoyed, family and friends were catching up and all at the beautiful setting of Dogridge Winery in Mclaren Flat. All four artists (Jen Wright, Margot Solomon, Emily Solomon and yours truly) sold work which made the day even better.
If you didn't get a chance to see the show it runs until Monday 23rd of September. Remember by buying art you are not only helping a small business (the artist) you are adding to the culture and happiness of your life and many others.
Well another T.V. interview under my belt, I am beginning to enjoy this small taste of media spotlight. Check out the interview on: http://www.festivalfishbowl.com/
Check out this You Tube link done by groovey T.V. show "Chicks World" on Ch 31. They are interviewing me about an up and coming art fundraiser for Plans "Because I am a Girl" global campaign designed to fight gender inequality and promote girls’ rights in order to lift millions of girls out of poverty.
