Frost Fest Art Exhibitions

Hey there one and all…
If you are free tonight, the Frost Fest Art Exhibition opening is on from 6.30pm at the Orange Function Centre and the exhibition continues until Saturday afternoon. Also, Colour City Creatives are holding their Frost Fest Exhibition at the Barracks in Peisley Street from today until the end of the week, so pop in and have a look if you can. Lots to see and do in this frosty Orange weather 🙂

Here are a couple of my latest artworks, hot off the press so to speak.

Vertigo Warriors in the chain of hope

This hand coloured etching titled ‘Vertigo Warriors in a chain of hope’ is my entry in the Victorian Cancer Council Art Awards coming up in Sept/Oct 2013.

On the trail with Yuranigh and Major Mitchell

This woodblock print titled ‘On the trail of ‘Yuranigh and Major Mitchell’ is an entry in the ‘Frost Fest’ Exhibition at Orange Function Centre opening tonight, Tuesday 30th July.  The artwork is based on the Wiradjuri Aboriginal guide, Yuranigh and Major Thomas Mitchell. Mitchell, with Yuranigh’s invaluable knowledge and assistance, was the first white man to climb to the summit of Mt. Canobolas.

1851

This acrylic painting titled ‘1851′  is my second entry into the Frost Fest Exhibition, based upon the gold rush of 1851 with the first payable gold discovery at Ophir, near Orange. The painting explores the pre-European Wiradjuri history and the Chinese history of the area, long lost in the landscape of time.
