Melissa has talked a lot today, and still won’t shut up…
lost; one voice. went wandering late this afternoon, and was last seen hovering around the CIT complex in Perth. If found, please tell it to go home, its owner is anxious for its safe return. Preferably by 2:15pm WST tomorrow… The opening was massive night, we can hardly hope to count the numbers. Sales were good, and the popularity of our venue was such that we had to boot out about 30 people at closing.
My sincerest thanks to my co-conspirators, who surprised me with a gift at the end of the night, and to Justine for her excellent work on plinths (including some stellar project management). And Bruce, who kept his hand on the tiller all night, ensuring safe passage for all, especially me. No, go to bed, the lot of you! We start again at 9am sharp!
PS – If in WA, check out the Seven Days magazine in the paper, p6. The best publicity is free!
Melissa populates a space with plinths. Feels compelled to blog about how clever this is.
This is an image taken today of the Showcase Gallery, at the CIT, Northbridge. (WA, y’all) Next door is an even larger gallery being used for the massive Graduate Metal XII show, that was also in the process of being mounted today. When I say also, the plinths finished and the wall boards prepped is as far as I got today in our space. This is the calm before the storm. Tomorrow, it pours jewels!
One week until the Return exhibition in Perth. Expect to see Melissa looking a little dazed from here on in.
There’s plenty of action round these parts at the moment. And all to do with one thing. I’m putting on a show! Of course you’re all invited, so long as you can get to Perth some time in the next month… If not, maybe you can live vicariously. I’ll try my best to keep y’all updated on the shenanigans of the show, and hopefully the conference too. But if I fail, please don’t judge me. Like they say on the Iron Chef, “I will do my best!”
