Artwork Delivered to Basement Gallery

On Friday I delivered my artwork to the Basement Gallery so that Lauren and Matt could begin the curating process and hang the works ready for opening on the 10th November at 5pm.

The curators decided to leave this artwork out because it didn't fit with the rest of the works. I think they made the right decision.

I have 51 small artworks in total comprising 26 pen and archival ink drawings/paintings on Arches 300gsm paper, 5 collages of various papers on acid-free mat board, a collage on canvas, 3 textile bowls, a framed larger pen and ink painting, and an assortment of brooches, hair barrettes and necklaces (jewellery without the jewels – grin). With the exception of 2 of the bowls these are all new works not previously exhibited. I am interested and excited to see how they display them. I indicated that some works have common elements so would probably look good grouped together, and that one work might be too difficult to include from a curatorial perspective (and I won’t be offended if they don’t include that one because I think it is sufficiently different to be the start of a whole new series 🙂 ). I made some special hangers for the necklaces so it will be interesting to see how well they worked too. I find out 30 minutes before the opening starts what they’ve done…. Nail-biting stuff! I hope I like the way it’s displayed. I’m confident I will.

You get a glimpse of two of the artworks in the promotional video filmed by Matt 2 days before I delivered the works. But if you want to see the other 48 exhibited artworks you might just have to visit sometime over the next 2 weeks – grin. Venue: The Basement Gallery, 241 Hay St, Subiaco (opposite The Vic). Gallery hours are 10-4 weekdays only. Reef – A Fine Line is showing now until 24 November 2017.

    Lauren and Matt did a very good job hanging and positioning your work but they had wonderful stuff to work with! I really enjoyed the vibe at the opening, especially the attendance of such a wide age range of art lovers. It’s a welcome new gallery space for artists.
