The months seem to be going by all too quickly as the second half of the year gets fully underway. By the time you read this I will be in Hong Kong, participating in the Asia Contemporary Art Show! It's the first time I have exhibited in this amazing city...such excitement...I am even hoping to slip in a little plein air painting on the side! The show runs over 4 days from September 15-18 at the prestigious Conrad Hilton Hotel...an unusual format in which the exhibitors occupy a hotel room which then becomes their private gallery by night as Asia's top art collectors peruse all the work on offer. Sounded a bit strange when I first heard about it but apparently the collectors love the informal atmosphere and the chance to chat directly to the artists. I will be taking a selection of my Paris works and also my Australian landscapes as I'm really not sure what the Hong Kong market will best respond to.
Immediately following the Hong Kong show...ooh la la...I will be heading to Paris and France for 3 weeks! The prospect of 3 weeks plein air painting has got my artistic juices near fever pitch...it will be a lovely reward after the busyness of Hong Kong.
In other news this month I am over the moon at having proceeded to the stage of being one of the 42 finalists in the NSW Parliament Plein Air Prize...this is rapidly becoming one of the state's premier art events so I am thrilled to have gotten this far...fingers crossed for the announcement of the winner on October 12!
Below are a few of the pieces I will be showing at the Asia Contemporary Art Show.
