The Spring Ball–London Calling

This is part of our group at the Bungendore Spring Ball.   We had a ball” dressing up for it.   Gareth won a prize for his costume.  Rosemary did all the work of glueing all the buttons on.  She did a marvellous job.   Avril was Britannia, Mike was a London Business Man along with the Times, Bowler, Briefcase and Brolly.   Bob was Prince Charles with ears and I was supposed to be Camilla but not a very good one.   Bob’s red,white and blue ribbon was a Bungendore Show ribbon with Champion Ram on the inside.   Later on he turned it round and got a few laughs with it.   We danced most of the night and enjoyed not only the food but the fun.

I belong to a group called NETS,  it is a group of artists who connect by meeting and discussing art and having exhibitions. It was the idea of local artist, Nancy Tingey, and was taken up by Valerie Kirk who is head of the Textile Workshop at the School of Art, ANU, Canberra, and we linked up with the University of Cumbria in the UK and the University of Turka in Finland.
Our latest exhibition, Networks was held at the Belconnen Gallery in August 2012.
This exhibition explored issues around social, political and ecological themes relating to nets and networks.
Eighteen artists from the group participated in this exhibition.
Jacque Schultze curated the exhibition and expertly made every work not only stand out but blend in with the other works in the gallery.

This is one of the pieces of my work from Diverse Directions Exhibition held at the  Foyer Gallery School of Art, Australian National University, Canberra earlier this year.
During this year I had work in two exhibitions.  The first one was called Diverse Directions and I shared the Foyer Gallery at the Art School, Australian National University, Canberra with two other friends, Bev Moxon and Leonie Andrews.
