Simply Spruiking... Places & Spaces Exhibition



I don't want to rub it in too much, but I'm currently in the midst of a fabulous holiday taking in parts of Thailand and Malaysia.  Right now, we're about midway through, soaking up the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Malaysia in Georgetown, Penang.  Those who follow my twitter or instagram will have seen Georgetown is all about the food and the buildings, or more specifically, the doors.  Every street and laneway holds beautifully, slightly shabby old buildings in an array of colours.  I will wait til I am home to post a "best of" photo series for you here on the blog.


In the meantime, I wanted to make sure I let you know about an exhibition I am featured in that is opening next week at Cudgegong in New South Wales' Central Tablelands.  Places and Spaces is a group exhibition of emerging and established artists from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide exploring jewellery design, illustration, ceramics and installation.  As well as exhibiting works by the artists, the show provides a sneak peek into our work spaces.  I've included a few of my workspace pics in this post (if only it was always this tidy).


The exhibition has been curated by Zara Collins, a fellow artist who is the owner of a very special Simply Phoebe commission piece, which I posted about previously. She's brought together a wonderful collection of artists, including my friend the maker/ artist/ curator extraordinaire Zoe Brand, friend and gorgeous porcelain jewellers Golden Ink, amongst many more whose work I am looking forward to exploring myself.  Check out the Places and Spaces  blog for more details, links, and artists features and profiles (including mine here).


Places and Spaces opens this week on Friday 2nd September, with the official opening on Saturday 3rd September.  Sydneysiders - this could make a lovely weekend or day trip!  Full details in the image at the top of this post.












Simply yours,
Phoebe
