Its been quite a while since my last post - that's mainly because I have been doing other projects and had nothing new to say about the Pace project. But there were things still happening for the artists who were involved in the first Pace show.... here are some of the things I know about:
Peter Biddulph was invited to give a talk on his studio practice to interior
designers and architects of Conrad Gargett in May, and the guinomi he showed in Drawling are now stocked by Queensland Art Gallery Store.
Peter also emailed me other news:
Since my last email my entry of 'Biomimesis' for the Travelling
Scholarship 2011 http://www.travellingscholarship.org.au/ has been
accepted by judges and will be exhibited along with 39 other entries at
the Noosa Regional Gallery from 27 July to 11 September 2011. The
official opening and announcement will be at 6pm on Thursday 4th August.
And from Japan, [impressively],
The guinomi have successfully passed two stages of judging in the 9th
International Ceramics Competition Mino, Japan http://www.icfmino.com
and will be exhibited in Mino from the 16th September - 23rd October 2011.
Phoebe McDonald was invited (by Art on James) to create a work in response to the work of jewellery designer Matt Dwyer, who owns FIO Contemporary Jewellery and Design. The work she made was a framed pin construction, measuring 50x50cm, which was silently auctioned with proceeds going to the children's charity AEIOU.

I'm sorry not to have this information up in time for Art on James last weekend, but hope some of you caught the big Art on James event anyway? Somehow I was oblivious to the first week of June, and thought it was still the last week of May.
Phoebe also has photographs from the Salt Lake series she showed some of in the first Pace exhibition Drawling at the Gympie Regional Gallery www.gympie.qld.gov.au/gallery opening Saturday 18 June and running till July 2. A talk by Phoebe on 22 June, 1pm.
