A recap, update, no session and art news

Greetings all,

We had a busy session last week and a quieter one this week, but that’s the way it goes. Pictures are below (and I must say that I am getting really bad at taking pictures, I think I need to stop just walking up to take one and actually stand still for more than a couple of seconds) from the last two weeks.

There is no session this coming Monday, June 3rd. This is due to the public holiday. We’ll be back on June 10th with newcomer Alicia, followed on the 17th by Trent who we have had in once before if I remember correctly.

Now for something a bit different:

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago about the art show that one of regulars, Tom, will be having. Well that is opening tonight (The 31st) @ 6pm, feel free to head on out.


And the 3rd year BFA students at UWA are having their end of year show next week. Although the exhibition starts on Monday, the actual ‘opening night’ of the show is Wednesday, June 5th @ 6pm and it conveniently located in the gallery next to our drawing space (and is the one we held our drawing show in earlier in the year). I’ve been seeing their work build up in the studio over the semester as I’ve been working on my Honours stuff and there are some really nice pieces that will be going up. I should also mention that this will be the main show for the year as most of the students are graduating after this, at the end of the year there will be only about three or four 3rd Year students exhibiting, plus two Honours students (of which I will {hopefully} be one). The invite is below.


Also, I’ve recently found out about some interesting art competitions that caught my eye and that some of you may be interested in:

First up is the Black Swan Prize. Enteries are currently being accepted and will continue to be so until July 12th. It’s open to just about every illustrative medium, but excludes digital media and has some good money attached to it. (Note that this competition does require an entry fee for your work.)

Secondly is a new one in celebration of the Square Kilometre Array called Seeing Stars SKA Art Prize 2013. Like the Black Swan Prize, this one is open to most illustrative mediums, but excludes photography. Prize money isn’t as good, but there is no fee to enter and the theme is awesome. Open until July 5th.

Thirdly, and lastly, since the previous two exempt photography, here is one that is purely about using a photog-machine; the Fremantle International Portrait Prize 2013. Open until July 8th, this one also has a small entry fee.
