Sara Dowse, no words for a wordsmith x

underground ARTspace

So in awe and thrilled to read this review of our very own ARTspace cohorts Sara Dowse’s book ‘Schemetime’ published first by Penguin, 1990 in this blog: http://whisperinggums.com/2014/07/11/sara-dowse-schemetime-review/

We’re so lucky to be among such amazing talent at the underground ARTspace, and a jolly awesome bunch of people too. Sara, you have always, and continue to inspire me with your ability to be so creatively, politically and generally progressive.

You’re a star! x

I’m putting together a few classes for the next school holidays between myself and hopefully a couple of other locals creatives. If you’re interested let me know ASAP for first dibs on spaces. We run small classes so that your little folks can get as much out of them, and have heaps of time for exploration and experimentation as they can get.

 Hey Gang,


Just a quick note from me. I’m very excited to be taking part in a group show this weekend at Flourish Arts in Birchgrove. It promises to be incredibly diverse, and it’s always exciting to ‘cross the bridge’ and wave my wares somewhere away from the Northern Beaches. It’s actually been awhile – in fact only 2-3 times since I became an ‘Insular Peninsula’ in 2006. Would love to see you there. Adrian and I are manning the Gallery Sunday afternoon, so come join us for a quick bubbly. 
 
Further to that it’s been so much fun having Rachel and her uber creativity at the ARTspace. There’s more information about the glorious Lisa Woolfe and her course also. They’re taking bookings NOW for term 2 so please contact them with interest. 
 
Also, on another exciting front – Gabby Malpas is sending an expressions of interest class for doing some classes at the ARTspace. I can not WAIT for these. So exciting. Please see attachment for more info. But following for important dates and info! Let Gabby know ASAP if you’re interested – her classes over the bridge book out super quickly!

2014 ART classes for Adults and Teens FINALLY!!!

Hey Gang,


Following a heap of emails through the year about this very subject, I am super excited to be sending this email announcing the beginning of ‘a new era’  at the underground ARTspace – the return to classes. This email announces the beginning of some pretty exciting Art classes being run by Lisa Woolfe and Rachel Carrol (two well known and incredibly talented Artists) located in the underground ARTspace! Rachel will be doing Abstract & Mixed Media Painting (adults) and also Art Classes for Teens 12-17 years. While Lisa will be teaching Learn to Draw (adults). On top of this, plans are already underway for a Life Drawing Studio. Please find attached a flyer about the classes, or check out their website: http://artclassesnorthernbeaches.com.au
 
It’s been a big mission of mine to have the ARTspace as a stand alone creative space for Artists – and creatives of ANY medium to come down, and find their inner Artist is safe and fabulous surrounds. Art classes – and creating were the very core of my intention for the space but due to me being still a little unstable, and attempting to find balance – it’s something I’ve never been able to fully commit to. And a commitment it is. Art teachers (and all teachers) share something so personal and passionate and in doing so, help you to connect to your own gifts be they entire dormant thus far, or just a little dusty. That being said, the ARTspace is so special to me, and all the Studio Artists that reside within it, I wasn’t going to just hand it over to anyone was I?
 
So….ta dah. A new chapter begins. I am so excited to be sending you this email introducing this. I hope a lot of folks on my list have the opportunity to secure a space within Rachel and Lisa’s classes. This is just one avenue this will be promoted via so GET IN QUICK!!! I hope to see you around my neck of the woods again soon. 
 
Call 0423 982 349 (Rachel)
Call 0417 015 851 (Lisa)
 
Happy 2014 x
