October is to be yet another busy busy busy month jam-packed full of arty goodness so I’m not complaining – sleep and days off are over rated right?!?!
To kick start the month I have 2 exhibition openings that I am involved with:
Opening next Wednesday 2nd October at FELTspace is ‘to the things themselves’. Curated by superstar Ray Forester and featuring a whole bunch of fantastic female artists you won’t want to miss this one. Madi pretty much sums it up perfectly here –

Then on Wednesday October 9th from 6-8pm I will open my third exhibition as curator for the Carclew Foyer Gallery – ‘Non-threatening Boys’. For this exhibition early career visual artist Dominique Keeley will present paintings that explore the image of teen idols past and present. Dominique’s work analyses the meaning of masculinity in contemporary culture and explores the roles of male pop icons. Her work investigates the notion of these well-known teen idols – the non-threatening boys – as a consumable commodity marketed to a youthful female audience and the subsequent conflict that arises between the image and the individual. The body of work in all its glittering, candy-coloured glory, will be on display in the Carclew Foyer Gallery from Friday 4 October – Thursday 31 October, opening drinks Wednesday October 9th.
* i think it is rather poignant that this exhibition co-incidentally co-insides with the superstar teen idol boy band “One Directions” visit to Adelaide, playing EIGHT sold out shows in our little town….. EIGHT show!!!! check out Rip It Up’s fabulously amusing review of the concert here……
