Watt Space- Newcastle, Botanica- Works on paper by Breony Delforce till 16 May.
Butterflies and plant cuttings as monotypes with linoprints. Reminds me of the beauty of gardens as a retreat.

Newcastle Regional Art Gallery, Rick Amor- Times like these. Melbourne based artist struggle with cancer. I like these painted self-portraits because they remind me of photographs. How photographs can carry the psychological make-up of a person.

Airborn Exhibition Opening 2010

I’d like to tell you about the very exciting book preview & Art Exhibition, Airborn held at New Lambton Studio 48, 27/3/10. Many people attended this art event and this show was really successful. The art photographic book Purity about sexuality & freedom was received very well. Friends of Cathie Brooker from Sydney came down to Newcastle to celebrate and support the book and show. Purity talks about Life being so beautiful with freedom, relaxing, love and sex. Many people are very interested in this book, Purity last night. Many visitors and friends of Cathie Brooker were photographed together by the professional photographers Rohan Harvey and Gillian Scoble from South Africa last night.

Making money with Art

I joined Red Bubble nearly a year ago. I was hoping to earn some money from my photographic art again after a ten year distraction. However my plans didn’t happen , I’ve made less than $20 for all the time and effort. Does any one out their have some suggestions for me to make money from my art.? i’m struggling financially but must do my art for my sanity.
On the good side it has got my work out from under my bed to show to all you lovely folk. It’s given me interaction with fellow artists and art lovers. I really enjoy it as a leisure activity but I need to make a living.
I’m making an erotic book of photographs & poems. Does any one have a good idea of a venue to hold my launch perhaps in Sydney or Newcastle? One that people buy art books.
