I was part of Seed’s 2014 Christmas show last year and the theme was that each artist had an oval template to work upon. There was 30 artist’s involved and each artist had 10 cameo templates, so in total there was 300 oval works priced at $80 each. Sales was on a first come first serve basis. This was the exhibition exert:
Seed Gallery’s 9th annual Christmas exhibition is set to inspire and delight – and this year with a twist! Every year Seed invites 30 artists to respond to a specified template – among these have been wooden balls, crosses, discs and diamonds. This year’s template is the cameo, a locally produced 70x50mm wooden oval which in some cases may be wearable. The selected artists will each have free reign with ten of these templates, resulting in a wildly varied and captivating exhibition of 300 unique, original works.
Cameo featured works by; Stafford Allpress, Tracey Black, Rachel Brooks, Natasha Cantwell, Andrea du Chatenier, Marisia Dudek, Tabatha Forbes, Richard Freestone, Belinda Griffiths, Richard Kearney, Ada Leung, Duncan Pepe Long, Aaron McConchie, Mary McIntyre (courtesy of Whitespace contemporary art), Louise McRae, Naomi Nakama, Paddy O’Rourke, Kristin Perrett, John Pusateri, Mark Rayner, Peter Rive, James Robinson, Kylie Rusk, Annie Sandano, Glen Snow (courtesy of Antoinette Godkin gallery), Rebecca Thomson, Janna van Hasselt, Jesse Watson, Sophie Watson and Sarah Williams.
I couldn’t believe the line that was outside the gallery, it was such a great opening that night. For more images, click here to visit the Facebook page and for a more comprehensive list of the works that are still available, visit Seed Gallery’s website for more details.
