There has been plenty happening in the last week. While I was away travelling, both the Sunshine Coast Art Prize and the Noosa Art Award opened. It was disappointing to not be able to be there on the nights, but I'm not complaining too much.....the trip to Japan was fabulous (posts coming soon).

My hand paper cut work - 'Resource Ecology ( Conserve-Develop)' received a commended mention at SCAP by judge Chris Saines, Director of QAGOMA. The exhibition is on show at Caloundra Regional Gallery and continues until 26th October if you are in the area. The forty finalists works can also be seen online, and there is a People's Choice vote and prize if you feel inclined to choose a favourite work.

A couple of nights later at the Noosa Art Award my hand cut paper installation 'Life on the edge - Girt by Sea' received a Highly Commended Award. Special thanks to Marguerite who collected the award on my behalf. Congratulations to Simone Eisler for winning the overall prize.

In conjunction with the award, Noosa Regional Gallery is hosting a panel discussion by Noosa Art Award finalists on Friday 5th September, between 10.30 and 11.30 am. I'm looking forward to seeing the show and catching up with anyone who can make it on the morning.

There is a people's choice award and prize with this show too, if you feel like voting for a favourite artwork. The winner is announced on Friday 26th September, and the exhibition continues until Sunday 5th October.
