After a few hiccups in the organisational expertise of the art world, (read grrr….. how much fluffing around can a dozen or so artistic people engage in…. grr) the exhibition I spoke of back here is soon to become a reality.
The biggest hiccup, which we have only just become aware of, is a change of date to this Thursday the 8th from around 6pm. You can however, visit all this week from 11am until 5pm, in the Dedspace gallery located in the grounds of Sydney College of the arts.
As I mentioned in the earlier post, this exhibition is part of Sydney Design. This is a group of about 75 events across Sydney from the 3-18th August. Follow the link through for a timetable of possibilities over the next couple of weeks.
At this stage, I am minding the exhibition tomorrow from 11 for a couple of hours, so that would be a great time to drop in if you want to see me too.
The benefit of changing the date will mean that on one night you will be able to enjoy the opening nights of three exhibitions on campus. One exploring the use of camouflage and the other, souvenirs. It should be an interesting evening.
If you are unable to make it, and are interested in viewing the works, an online PDF catalogue is being produced.
…..and I want to say a super big public thanks to Charles who made my little piece look amazing with his crazy photographic skills.

Sorry it’s been
a bit very quiet around here lately.
School holidays are alway a mixture of joy and noise (sometimes yelling…not only from the kids) and big projects and rest and fun and movies and organised camp fun and time with friends and family.
I was aware this holidays, more than ever before, that the girls are spreading their wings and are more able to spend holidays without us, and that they won’t be around for holidays forever. A joy and a sadness because I do love having them around, and mostly they enjoy being with each other.
God has been very gracious to us, and it’s a joy to watch them grow into his love and express it in different ways.
I only took photos on one day of the holidays, for our picnic at Pretty Beach on the Central Coast.
How was your holiday if you had one?
Also, if you went somewhere close and cheap…..I’d love to hear about that too.
* I’m loving google+. I take photos on my phone and automatically they appear on my computer (no cords YAY) and even panorama, animate and image select automatically, without erasing the separate images. Give it a go, if you haven’t already.

It’s the crunchy end of session, and there are lots of works in the pipes but nothing to show you properly. I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of what I have been working on.

“Take photos of me floor dancing.” suggests 6 year old.
“Ok?” says Mum wondering what on earth that is.
“Oh, I get it” I say after the last one…. Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing”.
….and I couldn’t resist a gratuitous cute shot.

There are a whole bunch of other reasons why I would like to visit Norway. Here is just one.

One of the exciting things about returning to uni is the chance to be involved with FEVA. Fellowship of Evangelism to the Visual Arts.
My excitement was increased, as I was one of the first students of FEVA when it began 20 years ago.
A couple of nights ago I got to go to the Seidler Penthouse at Milson’s point and share dinner with other Visual Arts Students from about 6 different visually creative campus’ across Sydney. We were encouraged to think about think about how we ‘do’ our art degrees in the light of loving God with everything.
It’s always encouraging to see lots of people keen to follow Jesus….. but especially so for me on this night, because our chance to influence in our super-visual climate is great. Can’t wait to see how God is honoured visually over the coming years through these people.
