adventures at the port

all set to head off to the studio.... then my dearly beloved starts talking about the adventure that he and the kids are going on.. sounds pretty good....
so i take the day off, it is school holidays after all, and wander down and through the port festival with my beautiful family. the festival is on until friday the 16th.

silken waves.

getting rather close to a python...


building birds with juniper for the final night parade. cane skeleton covered in paper and glue. love getting my hands dirty... and encouraging the kids to as well.

in an excellent end to the day, we caught the opening of "rust", an exhibition of work from some of adelaide's finest artists/craftspeople at black diamond gallery. drool, drool!

highly commended @ heysen prize and new collaborative work

"I highly commend... Sunshine g.b. March's intriguing small ceramics that pack a lot of messages about different levels of society in a small and delightful series... "
Susan McCulloch, Judge for the Heysen Prize at Hahndorf Academy.

Delighted to be one of 4 artists selected (from the 56 finalists) for special mention at the award ceremony of the Heysen prize. The exhibition of finalists' work is open until the 1st of November. The theme is "interpretation of place".

Also at Hahndorf Academy is the first "outing" for a new series of work, created with drawings done by 2 of my children, Celso and Daisy. They were also delighted that evening, seeing their drawings in a shop! They are displayed next to a selection of some of my other work for sale in the retail gallery at Hahndorf Academy.
