Another Busy Sunday.

I have decided to put works with Martin at Aboriginal Art online.

The Revealed Showcase in Perth together with the move to the new art centre at Blackstone seems to have invigorated quite a few of the artists from Papulankutja.

For the first time I can remember, I am getting some really good mid range works. The art market is a funny place, often this lovely level of work does not fit with the "up market gallery" situation, yet is not suitable for the variety of tourist shops and sites like the culture centre at Uluru. I have long intended to put works up with Aboriginal Art Online but have had such inconsistent supply of really good mid stream work that I have never moved forward with this idea. This week I have!

I am now getting ready the works for the market place in Perth. Three of our artists are heading down to attend the various activities that surround the "Revealed" Showcase being held at the Perth TAFE.

My friend Jennifer Loverock is going to collect the ladies from the Perth airport and shepherd them over their 4 days in Perth. It will be great experience for the artists to stand and sell their works at the market stall and there will be good opportunities for them, with the professional development activities as well.

I realized on Friday that Gerry from the Melting Pot will be in Perth for some of the professional development activities. It may also be that Jodie, who worked so well with us with the Spinifex Paper may be there as well. The ladies will love to see familiar faces and I know they always love the glass work activities that the Melting Pot provide at Blackstone during Festival time.
