Exhibiting with 100% proceeds going to LGBTIQ crisis & info counseling service, Switchboard Victoria

I am pleased to be participating in a 3-month virtual exhibition to benefit Switchboard Victoria.  The exhibition entitled “series 01 // love” is in response to the Marriage Equality debate in Australia and invites artists to submit works on the theme of love.  Artworks will comprise a set of postcards to be sold, with all proceeds going to Switchboard Victoria, an information and crisis counselling service for the LGBTIQ community who have seen a 25% rise in calls since the announcement of the postal vote.

The aim of this project is two-fold, i) to promote sharing of positive images in light of the hate messages and debate going on at present, and ii) to raise funds for Switchboard Victoria. Images are released weekly via http://www.facebook.com/cartooningwithpride, pre-order your set of postcards today!

– Curator Jimmy Twin

My postcard features ‘Bec and Isa’ oil and acrylic on canvas, 2017.

The Midsumma Exhibits were a hit!

My Midsumma Exhibits have officially begun, and the opening receptions were fantastic! Hundreds of people were in attendance, and I managed to sneakily listen to some feedback from onlookers.

Art @1 Spring Street hosted ‘Inquisitarium’. The opening reception had guest speakers from Melbourne City Council, as well as Monique Thorpe, the Midsumma Festival Manager!

‘The Comfort Zone’ was hosted at Gasworks Arts Park, with live performances from the Low Rez Gay Choir and Mentalist Cath Jamison! There was booze and BBQ for attendees, as well as speeches from the Curator and Director of Gasworks!

I hope you get a chance to go see the exhibits in Melbourne through Feb 2!
