Have been quiet recently with the birth of my first child and my studio still not inhabitable since I moved rooms. So, as an apology here is an invite to a great stencil exhibition in Upwey. Great excuse for a trip out of the city.

THE DIRECTOR & COMMITTEE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO OFF THE KERB’S 100th EXHIBITION

100 CATS
A Group Exhibition in support of Ingrid’s Haven. We will be collecting provisions and donating proceeds to Ingrid’s Haven – a not for profit, no kill, cat shelter. The shelter needs cat toys, treats, soft bedding, wet food and high quality dry food (please do not bring super market dry food because of the high salt content in it which destroys the kidneys). Please bring your donations with you to the gallery.  www.ingridshaven.net.au

We’d like to thank The Cat Motel for their support. If you purchase an artwork, your name will go into the draw to win a $100 voucher for your cat to stay at The Cat Motel. www.thecatmotel.com.au
In ancient Egypt cats were considered to be sacred, with the goddess Bastet often depicted in cat form, taking on the war-like aspect of a lioness.  Ancient religions believed that cats are exalted souls, companions or guides for humans that they are all-knowing but are mute so they cannot influence decisions made by humans. In Japan, the Maneki-neko is a cat that is a symbol of good fortune. Freyja, the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility in Scandinavian mythology, is depicted as riding a chariot drawn by cats. Likewise, many cultures have negative superstitions about cats. There is a belief that a black cat crossing one’s path leads to bad luck, or that cats are a witch’s familiar, used to augment that witch’s powers and skills.  Today, cat lovers obsessively share photos of their beloved felines on various social media sites sparking the internet craze of cats like Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow and Cooper.

Fabulous show – thank you and congratulations to Shini and curator Dan Dealy. My photos of the evening are a disaster so I have, once again, borrowed liberally from Facebook (this time courtesy of Maggie Bird – thank you).

More of the antics here and all of the art works here.
Show is on until 25th April.

Some really great pieces on show at Off the Kerb’s 7th birthday show – on now. A particular favourite of mine was these over-sized cardboard box spider figures by Luke Boslem. They have been fantastically installed in the terrace-house stairs of the gallery.
