I did however have a painting shortlisted in the Publisher's Cup Cricket Art Exhibition, which was gratifying. Should I tell them I know nothing about the sport?
Anyway, here's my entry:
Weld Echo is coordinated by the Black Sassy Collective, the artistic arm of the Huon Valley Environment Centre (HVEC). The collective is a volunteer, not-for-profit, community based organisation and focuses on producing art exhibitions that provide local and grassroots artists with the opportunity to gain exposure.
The Weld Echo exhibition aims to create greater awareness of the destruction of the amazing southern forest of the Weld Valley, which is located 50 kilometres south west of Hobart.
The exhibition opens at 6pm on 3rd March at the Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart. Special Guest will be Australian Greens senator Christine Milne. Come along! Bring your friends!
I'll post photos of my paintings after the opening.
