I've joined Off Centre Gallery
Hello everyone, and sorry about the long delay between posts ... I've just been very busy. This month, I joined a co-op of 10 artists who run Off Centre Gallery in the Salamanca Arts Centre of Hobart. The gallery is in a lovely old converted warehouse on Salamanca Place, and specialises in ceramics and glass. It also has jewellery, paintings and photos. All the artists are locals and we take turns to mind the gallery, which is open 10-5 every day except Christmas Day.
I did a bit of experimenting, trying to create new works for Off Centre. I've made a series of small glass blocks which I plan to extend into larger sculptures. I've also made jewellery and large plates with organic and geometric designs.
I have a page on the Off Centre blog here:
and all the other artists are down the right hand side.
Meanwhile, why am I not doing Illustration Friday? Well, I seem to have dropped off their mailing list, so I don't get those all-important reminders any more ... I'll join up again and hope to post illustrations soon.
