Opportunity knocks

So, a few weeks ago an unexpected opportunity came up. Someone came to see me and asked to see my journals. She asked about my process, too. A few days later she asked if I would be happy to place a couple of journals in an exhibition that she and her husband were planning. Also, would I design an interactive element for the exhibition so that people could join in?

Would I!

So next week my work will be seen at an exhibition called A Place to be Safe. For me, my art journals are a place to be safe. I can play, thought-spill, and not worry about the end result. It's all about process. If you're in the Adelaide area, drop in and have a look and maybe produce an artwork of your own on the theme of safe places. The exhibition is being presented by the Soroptimists in support of the work of the Zahra Foundation Australia, which aims to assist women who have been threatened and abused at the hands of their partners, and mothers who want to save their children from violent homes. The goal of the foundation is to empower these women to stand on their own feet.

And as it's Friday, don't forget to check out all the wonderful work over at Paint Party Friday.
