It’s that time of year again! You may remember my first entry into the Artists of Mosman: 2088 exhibition last year. Well, it’s back on and I’m back in! This time with a painting of my dog Hope, when he was a puppy. You can read more about the work here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/16943987

This year’s exhibition was a bit smaller than last year – of approximately 260 entries, only 187 made it in. There was also no wall of puppies this time! I had assumed my painting would be in amongst a crowd of them, like they had last year, but this time it’s just my work, at the base of the inner stairs of level 1.

Artists of Mosman 2018

Attending the opening of the Artists of Mosman: 2088 exhibition on Friday, February 9th, 2018

Once again, the opening night was quite crowded, however it was nowhere near as hot as last time, and I was also able to hear most of the speeches, which were actually quite humorous. But in all honestly, the main source of my fun for the night came from dressing up! There aren’t many goth types in Mosman, so I stood out, sometimes receiving looks of surprise, and other times stares of disapproval. Dressing up around here is a fun social experiment, and I made the most of it!

If you’d like to check the exhibition out yourself, Artists of Mosman: 2088 is on display at Mosman Art Gallery from 10 February – 4 March 2017.

And in case you missed it, you can see an overview of the rest of last year’s art in my previous blog post.
