Feb 5: Date claimer for little pieces of New Mexico in Maryborough

Hellooooooo from Mt Perry.

Friday night, February 5, will be the opening of ‘Road to Somewhere’ at Gatakers Artspace in Maryborough.

Jenny Gilbertson and I have been meeting since early 2014 to plan a show of small works about New Mexico. When I say ‘meeting’, well, a coffee here, a margarita there, several good excuses for trips to see Trevor, a project, a panic, a postponement: finally we’re there… well, when I say ‘there’…

We have the venue, the guitarist, and a show of works all 20cm high and we hope you can all come and bring everyone you know and paint the town Turquoise! (Too much? 😀 )
And last week Jenny constructed our beautiful opening night piñata – you wanna see that for certain! So fun to watch her deftly weave this piece together. More gratuitous plugging to come 🙂

White Sands, saguaro cacti, and prickly pears take shape on my desk.

And shape shifting cacti, retablos and Southwest icons fill Jenny’s studio.

Lovely to be home but still ‘be’ in New Mexico.

  1. Wow, that piñata looks more than fabulous, Jenny. Dang! And we sure wish we, here in nowhere, New Mexico, could be there to see the show. Lots of pictures of installations, please. O boy.

  2. Wow. The prickly pear looks fabulous Jenny! Wish I could pop down to see you both and your lovely work. Hope your show is a smash hit.

  3. Thanks Nolan and Jean. I had so much fun making it 😀 I only wish I could produce some artworks as fast as the piñata! Less than a month to go and I still have lots to do, but I’m sure it will all come together ‘on the day’ as they say 😜 😬 😅

  4. Thanks Jenny and Adrienne for this tempting taster of the exhibition
    The artworks are looking beautiful. Having all small intimate works like jewels will look so good up on the gallery walls look forward to seeing them!
    Great looking Piñata Jenny !

  5. Dear Jenny, so good to hear news about you. A lot of time has passed since Fraser Island! Sending best wishes, Merike

  6. Hey Merike 😀 yes LONG time no see! Maybe you might be able to make it along to,the opening … would love to catch up if you can.
