Life is so very full at the moment, which is kind of how I like it. Crazy! The 19 Karen Gallery opening had a big turnout and it was nice to see some familiar faces. Thanks to all of you who came along! There are still paintings available and the exhibition is on display until the 28th of September. So if you visit the Gold Coast, do drop in and say hi. Also you can see the full catalogue online HERE
Anyhow! I have another big project rolling out which has been in the works since last year. I will be showing my Thought Catchers this coming thurs, fri, sat and sun at the Melbourne Affordable Art Fair at the Royal Exhibition Centre. You can read the interview and find out more about this HERE.
I first did a Thought Catcher installation back in 2017 at the Hamilton Art Gallery, so the idea has really grown since then!
If you would like some complimentary tickets, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and if your quick I will get some to you.
I will be live painting one of the installations, which are also available for purchase, so do come on down and say hi if you can.
I have had lots of help to get this idea off the ground, very grateful to WDEA works in Hamilton and John Iredell for the build, to Vicki Whyte & fam for their undercoat assistance and the Mansbridge/Fry family for heavy equipment/transport help, and last but not least, Bruach Colliton for the use of his shed as a second studio space! No doubt there will be more people to thank by the time this install is over!
Thanks for reading on, and don’t forget I post a heap of real time stuff on instagram, find me there at @jasmine_mansbridge to see more bts! See you at the Fair.
