Showing Off

Whew! One of my New Year’s resolutions was to take up every exhibition opportunity that came my way in 2010. Deadlines are good, I thought, they will force me to start working on some of my project ideas. At that stage it wasn’t obvious that several deadlines would come together to give my life that extra edge in May/June. Still, I made it, learning so much from the experience that my latest Different Strokes article practically wrote itself – you can find it here, in the June 2010 edition of Capital Image (page 22).

And the exhibitions? They were: Access All Areas 2010: The PhotoAccess Members’ Show (Huw Davies Gallery, 29 April–16 May); Thredbo – A PhotoAccess Group Show (Huw Davies Gallery, 20 May–6 June); and Diversity is a Nine Letter Word (Strathnairn Homestead Gallery, 15–30 May). Finally, Out There 2, the Canberra Photographic Society’s annual exhibition opens today at the Watson Arts Centre (1 Aspinall St, Watson; 1–11 July; gallery hours 10am–4pm Thurs-Sun).

The photo? It’s Autumn Reflections 5, last of a series I made in 2006, rediscovered when I was preparing work for the Diversity exhibition.
