Drawing day thirty-seven
Kind of a found poem piece. If you can't read the print, it says:
Instead of two lecture classes today, we went on an excursion to the bayside suburb of St Kilda to the Linden Gallery to see their Postcard Show. The title of the exhibition is a bit misleading: the works are not postcard size, but six are selected to be made into postcards to sell to raise funds for the gallery. There is a limit on size (30cm x 30cm x 30cm) but it's not juried, everyone who enters has their work hung (there is an entry fee - it's the gallery's main annual fundraiser).
Perhaps I'll enter next time...
The sheer volume of works was mind boggling, with pieces hung almost from floor to ceiling in four rooms, plus sculpture on every surface. Some wonderful, some inspiring, some not so great. Every time I re-entered a space, I'd see something new, something I'd missed the first time (or the second, or third!). Gave me LOTS of ideas :)
