2008 National awards exhibition Australian Society of Miniature Art (NSW)

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

The FawnIt was wonderful to see that the National Awards Exhibition, implemented and started by Philippa Stewart-Hall, when she was the fourth president of the miniature art society, is still continuing and is such a success…

Unfortunately they have lost a few sponsors along the way… but that sort of thing happens and despite everything, it is a fantastic opportunity for the Australian societies to band together and demonstrate their skills. (Click images in this article to see a larger image.)

Jim Cox Art Classes

Students over the past 5 weeks have been privileged to have the tutelage of former graphic designer and visual art lecturer Jim Cox, who is now in that wonderful position of being able to pass on his bounty of artistic knowledge to small groups of people.

“Why?” you might ask. Because he feels like it!

Jim has been most impressed by the diverse approach that individual students have used to paint, in the renaissance style, a portrait of their lovely model Rebecca.
He is also impressed at the generosity of sharing that has developed among the students; after all not one of these people had ever met before!
Jim feels very privileged to have brought some of the students to the threshold of their own creativity, and he finds life very exciting when he unearths the unexpected talent in people who would never have thought that they could have even a vague success painting a portrait…
This group includes Ophelia Rechlin, a former fashion  designer. Jenny Porcellini a young mum, and very keen student. Cheryl Laizens. Glenis Gray, an emerging artist, seriously working at developing her skills. Kath Nash, a gardening guru. Brad Drew, a Mapleton based architect. Michael Simpson a local G.P. Musician and sketcher, Fran Davies, and Philippa Stewart-Hall, professional artist…
and of course, Jim being very helpful, as usual.

South Korean Exhibition “Reflective Light” 2008

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

The exhibition, according to all reports, has been exceedingly well received…with the exhibition organizers expressing their views as to the excellent quality of the works now on display.


They were particularly enthusiastic about the Australian artists’ works and the exhibition is due to travel further into other galleries around South Korea.

It is wonderful that such an exchange can take place between the two countries.
