The New Cafe: My work at "Indulgence"

I just thought I’d share a little excitement with you…

I think it’s every artist’s dream to walk into a room (that isn’t in his/her own house) and find their own work adorning the walls…

Well, it’s a dream come true for me!

“Indulgence” opened its doors on Monday, July 25th and it has been a huge hit! I have sixteen prints on the walls; all are for sale. However, because I’m totally new to these things, I didn’t think about what would happen if someone actually bought one (ie. empty wall space!!!) so to buy me some time to buy some more prints, I made the decision not to make them for sale until Sunday August 21st.

Why Sunday, August 21st?

Sunday, August 21st will be the Official Exhibition Opening! 4pm – 6pm at “Indulgence”, Nevill St, Derby, Western Australia.
.

My mum is coming up from Perth to lend me a hand (and some support!). Mark is going to take some photos of the event. If you know of anyone who will be in or around Derby, please let them know about it!!

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the fabulousness of the cafe…



PS. Just so you know, all but two of the prints are from RedBubble. I can’t rave enough about how awesome they are. Wonderful RB peeps ~ thank you for helping make dreams become a reality!!!

    Big congrats Mieke. Looks like a great location to exhibit your wonderful photos. Hope it all goes really well and you get lots of sales.

    BTW do you mean Sunday 14th?

  • The 21st. I got the numbers wrong (numbers have never made much sense to me!!!)
    Thank you so much. It’s an AWESOME cafe. Very trendy, with cakes and yummy wraps and sushi… and the coffee is fantastic! It’s something Derby has been lacking for a while…

    Very swish indeed Mieke and not surprised to be honest

  • Why does “thank you” sound so superficial??
    Your support means so much to me, John (and now that sounds all gushy!!!)
    Anyway, thank you. Lots. And lots. :) :) :)

    Go Mieke, that is just awesome stuff! cant wait to hear how it all goes, your mum must be so proud of you :)

  • I don’t think she knows how cool this cafe is. She’s been to Derby before, and we didn’t have something like this, so I think she’ll be really surprised. It’s nice to surprise your parents :) :) :)
    Thanks heaps, Melissa. I really appreciate it!!!
