Sculptors Queensland

I've just stumbled upon "Sculptors Queensland" via Googling the name of an artist, after visiting her art blog, which I've linked to in a previous post.

SOSQ (Society of Sculptors Queensland) was founded in the 1960s, and provides a newsletter, monthly meetings with informative speakers, workshops and exhibition programs.

We've had a Hebel workshop last month here in Biloela, and this Saturday BAVA (Biloela Area Visual Arts) are getting together with the local pottery group, so the two groups can learn from each other/share ideas.

My mother used to teach pottery and sell pottery at markets, and did do some clay sculpting. I might like to try sculpting of some sort 'one day' too.

Hi Bronwyn,
You posted on my Blog today. Many thanks. At least I know there is someone out there in the ether.

I really like the painting of your daughter playing her music. I love back views of people! and often do the same in my work.

You asked if what it was like to move to the city. I love it here. I have always wanted to live in the city, even when I was growing up on my parent's farm outside Dalby. When I got married I htought we woudl be in the country for 5 years. It was a lot longer than that! When I first got to Brisbane I went to everything...public lectures, art 'dos', theatre and I even agreed to start a PhD from UQ which was offered to me. I have not continued with it. I ultimately burn myself out, because I also had 3 chilren aged 2. 5, 8 when i first came to Brisbane. I have learnt to curb my overreached expectaions of myself and have settled into something which is manageable...most to the time! My children are now 9,12, 15 and life is still very interesting!

Cheers,
Kathryn

Kathryn, thank-you for liking Violinist in Scarlet. It sold at auction on opening night of the Brigalow Arts Festival (our local annual art competition/exhibition)last year, to raise funds for the Biloela Art Gallery Association, which organises Brigalow.

I need to paint another of our resident violinist, to keep!

The strap which has fallen off her shoulder is meant to symbolise that she is no longer a child (although it did fall off during the photo shoot).
