PAINTERS IN MODERN TIMES – WHAT’S NEW

20th of May, 2009
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We love hand crafted art works here at PiMT’s and it is for this reason we actively support these groups. If you are a member of PiMT and run one of these groups let us know and I will include it in our forum
Links to Traditional Art Groups

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
AND THE WINNER IS…
PiMT – fingers crossed!

Well guys a very big thank you from the group, I think you have done an excellent job and I am quietly confident we have done really well.
We attracted 2142 votes on 152 entries which I think is phenomenal! In fact in terms of our membership it is about 180%!
13% of our members competed!

I don’t know where to start in terms of the work which was entered! They were all brilliant.
The point of this challenge was to “have fun”, promote the group within redbubble and hopefully highlight our wonderful members and ultimately gain some redbubble prizes for the group!

When you consider the first three points I think we have all come out way on top!
Congratulations
Now we sit back in trepidation and await the final outcome!

Once again thank you to all of you that supported the group by entering and voting in this challenge.

  • UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS *


COSMOPOLITAN, BAILEYS OR MIDORI?
25 May – 20 June 09
@ArtHouse Hotel 275 Pitt St Sydney
Are we on the brink of another great depression? If so how do we cope? We do what folks in the roaring 20’s did. We live in the moment. We celebrate life with our friends. We dance, we laugh, we have a cocktail and immerse ourselves in culture. There is a place we can enjoy all of these things. In the heart of the city three international artists mix a cocktail of sweet, spicy and musical treats with paintings looking at the lighter side of life.
Meet the artists on the opening night: Monday May 25th, 6:30 pm.
Artists
Midori Furze Petra Pinn Laurie McKern
