Full Steam Ahead

Gosh its busy times around here at the moment. I spent today helping a friend out in her coffee shop "Alfina's Cake and Coffee", my favourite coffee shop in Brissie. I totally recommend dropping in here for your coffee fix (and a decadent cupcake), you won't be disappointed. I had a lot of fun today stepping out of my comfort zone and doing something I don't normally do and I totally recommend trying this sometime, its so refreshing.

This is a picture of one of Alfina's famous cupcake cakes, aren't they just gorgeous?

We finally sold our big boy, Khaleef, and he's headed down to his new home near Melbourne in Victoria. We'll miss him but his new owner is great and he's going to live at a minature horse farm and will be well fed and looked after.

I completed the painting above, "Earthly Vessels"and submitted it in an art competition run by the Arts Alliance of Pine Rivers this weekend. The exhibition is being held this weekend at the Albany Creek State Primary School from Friday, 26 August (opening night) thru to Sunday, 28 August.

I also completed the painting above for a raffle prize at our annual Spring Garden Fundraising Party thats coming up. Click HERE and HERE to view postings about previous events. If you'd like to come to this event please leave a comment or facebook me or send me an email, tickets are selling fast and we're capping it at 100 people, so please don't delay.

And finally, I have been progressing my pieces for our upcoming exhibition "Mamas in the Hood" at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery in October. Its getting very exciting and I'll post more information on this soon.

What's Been Happening in the Studio

Been working away quietly and thought I'd share a few little snaps of parts of some of the works to give you a little idea of what I've been working on. This is all going to be included in the "Mothers in the Hood", a joint art exhibition at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery in October 2011.

Exhibition - Logan Gallery - Chrys Zantis opens 10 August 2011

Join Chrys Zantis at her latest art installation: motherboard’s olympus

Subtle soft pink knitted yarns and beaded sharp kitchen objects are some of the incoherent elements of this installation. Pass through luscious soft embellished curtains to find the Queen Motherboard herself as she gives audience to her court. In this installation the classical world’s gods meets the matriarchal rise of the 21st century.


Cnr Wemberley Rd & Jacarander Ave, Logan Central

OPENING NIGHT 12 AUG, 6 – 8pm (featuring a performance by Cecelia Chong Wah of Spider 8)
