I heard recently that I’ve been selected as a finalist for the Noosa Travelling Scholarship. I’m really delighted to have be included, and it offers the first opportunity to exhibit my artists book Judy & the Jacaranda.
The exhibition will be at Noosa Regional Gallery from July 29 – August 29, although the opening is on August 6 with the “big announcement”.
The application involved submitting a small portfolio of six images of my work and providing a proposal for how I would use the travel. I’d like to go to the Women’s Studio Workshop, New York state, which offers the rare opportunity of an artists book studio and a ceramic studio under the one roof and collaboration with R & F Encaustics just down the road. Well, a girl’s gotta dream!
The list of finalists is on the gallery website, and there are some impressive names, both young, up-coming and experienced artists, as you can see. It’s a wonderful opportunity to show with these people and to see their work, and the Noosa Regional Gallery has a special interest in artists books. I’m really excited to be a part of this event.
And for those of you who are part of Book*Art*Object, and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your very own copy of Judy & the Jacaranda, I’m pleased to let you know that it’s close…
