Opportunity to Exhibit

Over the next couple of months we have a variety of opportunities for artists and photographers:

Red Door Creative holds a Twilight Art Market once a month along with an Exhibition – there are limited tables available for artists to sell some of their smaller artworks (eg. Cards, jewelry, matted prints). The markets are a fabulous event with live music, art demonstrations and lots of laughter and fun. They are a great opportunity to network and meet new people.

Red Door also holds regular themed exhibitions and we are always looking for artists and photographers to exhibit their works.

Put the following dates in your diaries :

Spring has Sprung Exhibition

Check out some of the images from the opening night of the Spring has Sprung Exhibition……

Our fabulous display of hand developed pin hole images, taken as part of the Kids Photography Boot Camp. This was the highlight of our week as Steve helped us make the pin hole cameras from scratch, and then spent the remainder of the day perfecting the images, which proved difficult as the day was overcast and raining.

We persisted though and even tried a 40 minute exposure!! The kids favourite part was watching the images come to life in the dark room (it was mine too!!)

On our second day of the camp we created comic strips, the kids had to create a storyboard with their own story and then go out and take the images to suit. They really enjoyed watching their images come to life.

Call for Artists to Exhibit

I am looking for artists to exhibit in my next Red Door Creative Exhibition opening on Friday 9th October and running for the remainder of Spring.

The theme will be Spring has Spring and I am looking for a wide variety of mediums. I am not necessarily looking for flowers or traditional springy art, I am hoping that people will think outside the box a little! But flowers are acceptable too :)

It is open to any artist that are willing/able to get their art to me in Sydney, Australia (either by personal delivery, post or through Redbubble) by Sunday 27th September.

If you are interested and would like to know more email me at reddoorcreative@bigpond.com with Spring has Sprung in the subject line and I will forward you an application form.

There is no charge to become a part of the Co-op, it will rely on active participation by the artists through exhib
