Today, Prudence Terry and I made page 10 of the Townsville Bulletin. We are among several artists employed as roving artists by Townsville City Council’s gallery services as part of their promotion for the Glencore Percival Portrait Painting Prize at Perc Tucker Regional Art Gallery and the DUO Magazine Percival Photographic Portrait Prize at Pinnacles Art Gallery. In this picture, we’ve been hired to draw free portrait sketches at Cotters Market.
Graeme’s third novel, Jailbait, is now available at amazon.com. To find out more about the book and to read the chapter go to his blog site at Graeme Buckley Author Blog
Our exhibition, Benthos Illumination, is coming down on Monday, 10th April. Sunday is your last chance to see it and the other two excellent exhibitions accompanying ours, Tribal Odyssey and Fragments of Moments, so I urge you to visit Umbrella Studio this week, if you haven’t already been. Graeme and I would like to send a big thank you to the special people who purchased our work.
Now that the frantic preparation to get our exhibition, Benthos Illuminated, hung at Umbrella Studios is over and we have time to ourselves at last, we went with a friend to Tyto Wetlands in Ingham. I took this photo, which was a happy accident, but needless to say, I am fairly pleased with it.
Hope you can make it along.

This 5cm piece of coral has such an imposing present that I nicknamed it Menhir. It’s shape reminds me of a standing stone.
Our exhibition is fast approaching. We’ve been busy framing (now I remember why I never used to frame anything!). It’s been great working in the studio downstairs at Umbrella among such a lovely group of people. I am so fascinated by the subject matter of our exhibition that although I haven’t got this exhibition finished yet I already feel the need to do another. Thanks to the artist’s residency from PressNorth and to the members of Umbrella Studio Access Group I have had a great time creating the work.
