Graduate Metal 13 Brisbane

Not quite a month since the show but still a little too long after it to write anything apart from my own musings on the experience.
The range of work exhibited was vast. From the huge piece in this image to small intricately pierced pieces of metal.



From the personal perspective of this been my first jured show, I still didn’t quite believe it was there.

Why? Well good old self-doubt came into play but the best thing was it was real. I was there looking at it and all because I had bothered to send in an image.

So if absolutely nothing else the experience has taught me to ‘give it a go’ because you never know what somebody else sees in your work. Exceedingly hard at times, at other times genuinely surprising and encouraging.


If you look really hard those are my bangles under glass !!!!

  1. Mandy, let me first congratulate you – what a great show to be juried into and exhibit your work. Based on many recent observations about the art (and high craft) scene in Bris – the folks there seem to be really on the ball, gallery-wise and curatorial-wise. I hope this is the beginning of very many stellar shows for you!

  2. Thank you. It was a good show and accompanied JMGA conference ‘participation and exchange’. So there were plenty of opportunities to network with people from Australia and NZ.
