As most readers are aware I am a visual artist working with clay, natural materials and found objects. I also dabble in some painting and drawing.
What some of you may not know is that I also write alot about art. You can check out some peer review articles I have written by clicking on the publications tab in the above menu, or you can check out some reviews I have written by clicking on the Exhibition Reviews category on this blog.
A few months ago I began writing a few posts for an arts website specific to the region in which I live – ArtsAtlas. It is a directory of artists, art news, opportunities and anything artsy happening in the area and surrounds sponsored by the Ballarat Council and other local stakeholders. After writing a couple of exhibition review articles, which also included photography, I was invited to be a contributing editor, which was great.
A month or so ago, the council put out a call for commissioned content to be written for the site, to which I proposed three articles accompanied by documentary photography – and I recently received an email notifying me that my proposals had been accepted : yay, a paid writing gig!
This is actually very exiting, and I will keep readers updated on the progess of researching and documenting my articles as it all unfolds 🙂
The following images are linked to the reviews I have published so far on the ArtsAtlas website… enjoy 🙂
