Upcoming events and news, October- December, 2014

1. Rose Ann McGrrevy's survey show opens on Friday 23rd October- 8 November 2014. As the Exhibition Coordinator, I am thrilled to report that the extended Articulate project space crew has spent their time wisely in the lead up to this exhibition that will celebrate Rose's practice. This project benefits from pro bono work put in by the following people: Barbara Halnan- who as the exhibition's Curator also represents the Estate of Rose Ann McGreevy, Sue Callanan, Paul Cooper, Julian Woods, Robert Lake, Veronique Delauney, Nicola Buchler, Justin Henderson, Margaret Roberts, the APS Board, Bill Seeto and myself. Special thanks to Craig Hull and Bernard Bru who advised on all things rigging and WHS. 
Special thanks for incoming loans: Jane Polkinghore and Anne Kay; Pam Aitken and Margaret Roberts.

The exhibition will be officially opened by Mikala Dwyer and Steve Sinn (Rose's friend and retired priest) on Friday 23rd October 2015.

2. Museum of Fathers #39: 30 irregular minutes (1999- 2014) has been selected as a finalist for the Fisher's Ghost Art Prize, Campbelltown Art Gallery. As I have not [mostly, with the exception of one thing last year] entered art prizes for the last 15+ years this is a curious experiment for me. The work measures 120xm x 120xm x 8.4cm and is available for sale. 
Exhibition dates: 31 October- 12 December

3. Work summary: Although I had planned to start a new object in my temporary studio (29 August- 1 October), I have put this object on hold until the new year. Instead, I have continued working on a large suite of automatic drawings that I commenced late last year and which will continue into the new year, 2014-2016.

4. I have been invited to submit a new work for Scoring Patti Smith, a group show curated by Affiliated Text at Cross Art Books. Exhibition dates: 11 November - 15 January. As I am a longer term admirer of Smith this exhibition is a heavenly proposition to me.

5. Lynne Eastaway's current exhibition at SNO on Marrickville Road is a beautifully paced survey. Each room delivers a vast array of unique multi-layered entry points into a language rich with levers and platforms.
