Arboreal Priory - Encaustic, photo transfer and shellac
The image above is one of my latest Noisy Friar Bird 9, 35cm x 69cm (framed).   It is encaustic with photo transfer, and is available for purchase through my website.   It has been  beautifully framed.
Greetings all.

I can't believe how fast time has flown since my last newsletter in April.   I have had a busy time since I published that newsletter.

In early May, I was fortunate to be invited to become a permanent exhibitor at The Gallery in the Corridor situated in the Beenleigh Historic Village and Museum.

There are approximately 21 artists exhibiting in The Gallery in the Corridor and they are a very diverse, talented group.  The patron of the group is Donald James Water, OAM, and many of us meet for classes mentored by him each Wednesday at the Beenleigh Showgrounds.  

Each artist in the gallery has an allocated section which is  refreshed every three months.  The Gallery provides entertainment and refreshments for this event, including wine and nibbles and a live band playing for the day.  The change-over is usually opened by our patron, Don Waters OAM.  The village offers free entry with on-site parking and access to the adjacent Cafe for this event.

The Gallery is open from Sunday to Friday from 9.30am to 2.30pm except public holidays.  The Village is closed to the general public on Saturdays to host more private functions (such as weddings) on that day.  Below is a photo of the Gallery, and my current wall space.

The next change-over is on Sunday 28th August, and anyone who can make it is invited to attend the day, see the wonderful art, meet the artists, have some wine and nibbles and listen to the music.

This was my initial half wall space, but not long after, a whole wall space became available and below is my re-hang.

This is my current wall-space - which will be completely changed-over in August.  Not the best photo, as the window has blasted the exposure.

My encaustic workshops continue, and I am also now accepting students for painting in oil and acrylic as well as encaustic, and drawing.   The link to my website for the classes is -

Exhibitions 2016
Currently I have work exhibited in three venues.   The two images below are currently in the d'Arcy Doyle exhibition, 62 Railway Street, Mudgeeraba until this Sunday 10th July.

Shoreline Anchor - Encaustic 62cm x 98cm (framed)

SS Dicky - Beached Remains - Oil on Canvas - 70cm x 106cm (framed)

I also have two works being exhibited in the MacGregor Lions Art Extravaganza at Westfield Shopping Centre Mt. Gravatt, and two have been selected for the Camberwell Art Exhibition being held at Swinburne University, 427-451 Burwood Road, Hawthorn, Vic opening on the 9th July and continuing until 17th July.   Below are the two images selected for that exhibition.
HMQS Gayundah - The Final Berth - Oil on Canvas - 102cm x 76cm

Abandoned - Cherry Venrure - Encaustic - 85cm x 55cm
The Border Art Prize continues until next Sunday 10th July.  John and I both were lucky enough to each have a work selected for this prestigious exhibition.
Below is John's entry called 'The Trifid in the Lagoon' .  It is a panoramic astro photograph printed on face mounted acrylic, and I am sure you will agree that it is an absolutely beautiful image.    He was notified on Friday that this image sold - so that is a great thrill for him as he has only recently started exhibiting his astro photographs.
It is a limited edition photograph and we still have another available.
Above is a link to more of John's astronomy images which are available for purchase through my website.  They can be shipped safely throughout Australia and also overseas.  
The Trifid in the Lagoon.    31cm x 91cm

My entry in the Border Art Prize is Aboreal Priory - 31.5cm x 50cm (framed size), pictured below - still available for purchase.
I mentioned in a previous newsletter that John and I are working on a collaborative series based on a theme of explaining the life cycle of stars and conveying the reality that stars are not eternal; stars are born, they age and they die.  We are combining star astrophotography taken by John with drawings or photographs taken by me.  The theme also illustrates the nature of other wonders in our skies.
At this stage we have finalised five images in this series.  Below is one image, and you can click on the link below to see the other completed images.  More will be added soon.

All are available for purchase through my website

I have been offered a solo exhibition at the Waterside Artspace, Currumbin Palm Beach RSL Memorial Club for two months February/March 2017 and am waiting for a date for another exhibition in The Arts Cafe, Gold Coast City Gallery.   More about these in another newsletter.
If you know anyone who is interested in learning encaustic painting, or oil or acrylic painting or drawing, please pass this Newsletter on.
