Small Works/Small Town

Friday night's opening at  Rosebed St Gallery was a blast.  The gallery is in Eudlo, a very small town, inland from Caloundra.  That said, it still attracted a large crowd from all over the Sunshine Coast.

They waited patiently for the official opening ceremony to be completed then all were given access to the gallery at the same time.  After all, fair's fair.  It was like the opening of a David Jones post-Christmas sale.

Jade, from Pokokai at Nambour, did the honours with an excellent, and not too lengthy, speech.

I was delighted to see my works hung right by the front door, near one of Kim Schoenberger's fabulous little sculptures.

One of my favourite works by Kim was this one...

RABBIT WARREN (clever hey?)
Because it was a 'takeaway' show, buyers were able to pay for and take their purchases home.  The work was flying off the walls (and plinths), including some of mine and Kims.

Most of the missing pieces will be replaced, so don't think you'll only see half an exhibition when you go.  You'll just see a slightly different one AND the work is VERY portable, and VERY cheap.

    I is nice to see you standing next to Kim's work.

    Your work looks amazing, with the bold colors and the intricate textures.

  4. Congrats on selling your work and hope you sell more as the show progresses! It must be so exciting to see your work sell and know somebody liked it enough to PAY for it!!! And I really like your torso drawing and am pleased you won an award for it - it's simple but evocative!

  5. It was a blast Jo, and congrats on your sales, and thanks for sharing me in your post too :-)

  6. clever girl, great colours, must go and see this exibition, great to have good sales.

  7. Congratulations on your sales! Loved seeing you with your work, Jo:)

    Have a fab week!

  8. Jo, congratulations to you on your continued success! it looks like a fun event.

  9. This looks like a great exhibition & love the fact it had all the excitement of a DJ's sale (I LOVE DJ's esp their sales LOL) Your work is wonderful, the placement fantastic too, what a buzz it would have been to see red dots go up & some walk out the door, just brilliant. I think it's important to have art accessible to the public, so that was a great idea to have smaller portable works & love your friend Kim's sculptures too!

  10. J- Great effort and so good to see the red stickers flow - you are in the groove with this new approach.Go well. B

  11. Great fun to see this special art event so popular AND to see your sweet smiling face too :)
