It was the 12 Days of ‘Feathers’ and all through the house,
My nerves were high strung as art starts to sprout…
Xmas/New Year holidays! Supposed to be full of rest, but not so for this little curator( Xmas Eve, Day, and Boxing Day aside, of course!). The past few weeks since the success of our campaign have seen many wheels set in motion, and many a ball rolling.
Our beautiful beautiful catalogues have been sent to the printers, and returned minus binding.They are currently at Daniel’s house, being lovingly hand sewn together and accented with his own special touch. They should be ready to post with the sticker packs by New Years! Cameron and Sebastian’s art prints have been sent out to the lucky donators who scored them, and Genevieve will be printing her artist portraits in the New Year, on account of being in Melbourne until the 31st.
The poles that will form the main structure of the nest have been purchased, and after an eventful make-and-build day at my parents property up in the hills (Thank God Dad had a cement mixer handy on board!), we now have 25 free-standing ribs for the nest. After much stressing and to-ing and fro-ing and misleading information, I also purchased the chicken wire at the same time from Bunnings (mostly just to get it out of my head so I could move on with my life! :P).
This will make its appearance around the 5th when we start to bump in the show at Format Gallery… not long to go now!
The best bit, with the help of My-Dad-The-Engineer, after buying all the materials and putting it together we went from 6 days out from schedule and kind of over budget, to being RIGHT ON TIME, -AND- just enough under budget that I can provide drinks at opening night if the sponsorship falls through. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!! (you have NO IDEA how happy this makes me! >.<)
In case you missed it, there’s been a lot of chat online for ‘Feathers’!
People are well excited, and we’re in all manner of sites and listings as the world cottons on to just how great this show is going to be.
Here is the link to my YouTube Channel, which features our little showreel of internet advertising for the show. These take the form of short videos featuring some artists that are involved in the show, speaking out about it. Its pretty cute. >.<
We also have a listing on Yelp as an event, so if you’re a Yelper you can also give us a hand spreading the word through this link…
And, if you have time to kill, or are generally just curious, heres a few more places that the event scored a mention;
– Podcast of radio interview with Radio Adelaide 101.5FM
– Weekend Notes ( a hilarious article full of puns by Dave Walsh. Yay!
–The Adelaide Collective
–Krystoff Online Magazine
There will be many more forthcoming though, so keep an eye on the news feed!
Also, I’ll be Tweeting regular updates as they happen, so if you’re keen to hear about this and other arty project’s I’m working on, hit me up at <a href=”https://twitter.com/artoverapathy”>@artoverapathy</A> for a lark.
So as you can see it’s all starting to hot up!
I can’t think of any better way to start the New Year than with a big flock-off art party, so make sure you’re free on the 9th to come and play with us! If you can’t make it, the show will be open until the 9th of Feb, so come down when you can and give us a little colourful love. 🙂
See you then!
