I am so excited! "Diaphanous Dreams" was awarded an Honourable Mention at the Tyers Art Festival.
Over the years, I used to attend this show, always admiring the incredible artwork there, never imagining that I would one day be entering my own artwork. In recent years I have been awarded two first prizes, two other Honourable Mentions and in 2011 was the "Featured Artist" at the Festival.
This one, however, is very special as it has been a while since I have been able to create much, and this is one my first forays into a new medium, resin..
I am so happy that this weekend I will have some artwork back in Tyers Art Festival.
It has been a few years now since I have had anything in there due to ongoing health issues but..... I am back........Yay!!!
It is so good to be creating again. I love working with the resin as the final pour is a relatively quick process. Some days I still struggle to stand for any length of time, but I am getting there!!
Tonight we are attending the much anticipated official opening of "The Artspace" at Mirboo North and then on to the opening of Tyers Art Festival. It should be a lovely night.
If you get the opportunity to visit either of these events, I am sure you will be delighted with the quality of local, and I believe with Tyers, even overseas entries.
The Artspace is next to the brewery at Mirboo North and Tyers Art Festival is on at the Tyers Hall, next to the Primary School.
Below are some photos of my entries into the ArtShow, and I also have work out at The Artspace.
