The Whitmore Square Fair was a bit of a disaster weather wise – we were in serious danger of losing our tents – but it was a brave effort on the part of the organisers. I’d like to see more artists demonstrating next year – this year it was just art therapy and children’t painting workshops. Sometimes I draw portraits at markets and fairs, but last year there were six portrait artists! I think there was just one this year – I didn’t do it, I was too busy packaging cards and holding my artwork down in the gale!
I’ll be doing a couple of weeks at the Festival Centre art market at the end of November, to coincide with the Guitar festival. That’s on every Sunday, plus you can exhibit your work inside the Centre if you want to. Go along and see, if you’re in Adelaide.
I did well at the St Catherine’s school exhibition in Stirling, selling all four of the pictures I put in. I like not having to collect pictures at the end of the exhibition. It probably helped that my pictures were small and affordable!
Then straight after that we have the opening of the Studio Artists’ exhibition on December 7 at the Hahndorf Academy, and at the same time. the Miniatures exhibition at Red Poles Gallery and Cafe in Mclaren Vale.
So I am stupidly busy.
