Waverley Woollahra Arts School Show 2012

This piece, entitled Undressing (after Lambourne) was selected for the 2012 Waverley Woollahra Art Show. I am really pleased to have been selected and although not a winner in the Mixed Media section it was great to be able to expose (sic) my work to a larger audience. Next year I will attempt something larger and more ambitious to incorporate glass and textile art.

Paddington Markets Update

Well so far so good(ish) and after four weeks I am ahead after costs despite the perfect storm for small retailers - low tourist traffic, low sales demand and winter weather!! Absolutely the right decision and just have to persevere and learn some patience. A huge thank you to all those that have bought from me and all of the encouragement and positive feedback.

Paddington Markets is situated in the grounds of the heritage listed sandstone Paddington United Church amidst Victorian terraces and modern art galleries of the beautiful city fringe suburb of Paddington. Easy to get to by bus and with over 600,000 visitors each year it is Sydney's 6th most popular destination for tourists.

The Markets showcase the best of Australian contemporary art, craft and design directly by the designers and makers at their stalls. The Markets have operated since 1973 and are a fantastic place to visit and find unique and special gifts. So, what are you waiting for - come visit Savitrine Glassworks at Paddington Markets and have a great day out. Mention this blog entry for a 10% discount!!
