I dropped off the above two works at the Inaugural Inner west Women's Shed intergenerational exhibition themed Emerging. It stemmed from a concept that there are on going calls across the art world for emerging artists to enter competitions and exhibitions where the artists must be between 18 - 35 years.
The aim of the exhibition is to open the opportunity for artists younger than 18 years and older than 35 years and to redefine the exhibition of emerging. I definitely fall in the second group and welcome the discussion. Many like me are of a generation where you got a 'real' job which you would hold for the rest of your life. For me it was not until later in life that I had the confidence to make the time and give myself permission to make exploration into arts and crafts.
All entries will be eligible for the peoples choice award. I saw some really interesting works when I dropped my pieces off . I think it will be a good exhibition and commend it to you - go visit and vote if you can.
