THINGS OF INTEREST and Artist opportunities
If you didn’t already know, there is a pretty great studio that has opened up on the same floor, in a lot adjacent to 55’s gallery. The studio collective has been there for 7 months working / tinkering in a very generously sized open plan studio space. It is complete with kitchen, fridge, toilets and WIFI. There’s lots of parking, it’s only 1 minute from Sydenham station, or if you prefer bus the M30, 423 or 426 can get you there under five minutes.
Sharing the space are Uri Auerbach, Kate Beckingham, Andrew Brooks, Lucas Davidson, Nina Knezevic, Elise Harmsen and until recently Benjamin Forster.
Sadly Benjamin has left to travel overseas, so the collective is looking for someone to fill his spot.
Rent is $70 per week (not including electricity & water)
Looking for artists who need a flexible / experimental space for their studio practice.
Email if you are interested.

As you are undoubtedly aware, the amazing Manly Arts Festival is fast approaching. Our theme this year is ‘regenerate.’ As you will see, the brief is open to interpretation as you see fit, and I hope for it to include many forms of creative expression.
The launch will be during the day of the first Saturday 20th and run through until Friday 28th September, though depending on bookings we are happy to leave works for longer. Exhibition will be open Sat/Sun and Thurs/Fri 9-3pm, and by very flexible appointments.
Cost is $70.00 and includes hanging, advertising, invitations, staffing, drinks & snacks for opening. There is NO COMMISSION for this event. You are welcome to submit several works, though our aim is to have a broad selection of Artists and styles.

Now in its fourth year, Sculpture at Scenic World will exhibit from 15 April to 10 May 2015. The call for submissions follows Scenic World’s commitment to extend the outdoor exhibition for at least three more years after the significant success of the previous three annual events.
New to the Submission Guidelines for 2015:
Artworks must have been created within the past two years and may have been previously exhibited;
Successful artists will have the opportunity to produce small scale works for Sculpture Otherwise which will be exhibited for the first time at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre;
The Scenic World $20,000 Major Prize is no longer acquisitive.
Sculpture at Scenic World has supported more than 100 exhibiting artists with more than 160,000 visitors travelling into the Jurassic rainforest to view the artworks. Previous exhibition judges have included Anthony Bond OAM, Dr Richard Goodwin, Binghui Huangfu, Allan Giddy, Alan Krell and Louise Olsen.
Deadline for Sculpture at Scenic World 2015 submissions is Monday 20 October 2014.

– $2,000 Scenic World Staff Award
