I took my exhibition brochure to the printers last week but when they did a trial print the blacks were all different colours – I have spent some time trying to amend the problem between a number of different software packages – finally (many hours later and much cursing) the problem is all but fixed and we are going to print. Not much left to do now – yesterday I also picked up all the drawings from framers – looking good! The brochure is A4 (landscape) and folds down the middle.
Out of the fire – but now I am faced with finishing – I have been playing around with different size sewing machine drawers and this particular sculpture fits really snugly into one of the smaller drawers. However on the wall of the gallery – all the drawers being the same size – I think will look stronger.
I have spent the afternoon cleaning and waxing the vintage sewing machine drawers for my caryatids – I have 10 sculptures completed and I am hoping to place them all in the gallery along one wall on a perspex shelf at eye level.
no going back – it is official my exhibition has now been listed on the Sunshine Coast Galleries website
Opening Night is April 11th at 6.00pm –
On another note – yesterday we spent the afternoon trying out new wheelchairs for my daughter – her poor old chair has really seen better days and just recently the tyres have started to totally disintegrate – a combination of sea air, humidity and use. She will soon be the proud owner of a brand new Otto Bock chair – and what a chair it is – everything but the kitchen sink. She has a fantastic friend that takes her rollerblading along the coast strip and this will be fantastic – light weight and manoeuvrable – way to go!!!
