Fun, learning and working with professionals was the culmination of ‘Aberrant Play’ a great success celebrating contemporary approaches to printmaking and collage by 7 artists from regional and metropolitan NSW presented to the Clarence Valley at the beautiful Grafton Regional Gallery
Participating artists: Claude Jones (Sydney and Munich), Jenny Kitchener (Kyogle), Leonie Lane (Clunes), Bill Moseley (Hill End), Janet Parker-Smith (Sydney), Rochelle Summerfield (Seelands) and Sandra Winkworth (Sydney).
Right now, I am working on my upcoming solo show at the beautiful Grafton Regional Gallery and I have some big plans for it- to be continued.
I am working with Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest in January 2016 as part of kids camp workshop, and I’ve been invited to exhibit in 2 upcoming group shows in 2016, about the 'Year of the Print 2016' at the Katomba Cultural Centre and 'Local Provenance' at Tweed Regional Gallery. Part of this celebration of 50 years PCA, includes a one day Print Symposium being held at Grafton Regional Gallery on the 26th March, Saturday 9am-3pm, I will be helping with its organisation and I look forward to hearing some great speakers on contemporary print practice. Rona Green is confirmed!
