As you all know, my Arts course finished last week, with the final exhibition opening on Thursday night.
It was held in The Pigment Gallery which is in the iconic Nicholas Building in the Flinders Lane arts precinct of Melbourne. It's a pretty small gallery and while this meant a restricted amount of work could be hung, it also meant the space was intimate and not too overbearing. It was a great night with lots of friends and family coming to look at the gallery and a selection of our work. We had red and white wine which was labelled with 2 lino prints from class (one mine and one from Meredith) which looked great.
The exhibition was open for another 2 days, giving us all the opportunity to sit in the space and greet visitors.
It was an interesting exercise and a good chance to get ideas for future possibilities. Three items sold, including Jessie's print which is pictured above. Micahel also sold his Tasmanian Tiger lino print to Jessie's uncle who had a tattoo which was (funnily enough) also of a Tazzie Tiger. Incredible coincidence. Congratulations also to Simone for selling one of her prints.
Thanks to everyone who came by and said hello.
Unfortunately not all works were pictured above. You can go and look at a few more images of the exhibition and my art at my FLICKR page.
