1000 Cups of Cranes - Week 28

Week 28

Wow I am now up to date with my blogs! 
YAY!

Tomorrow I will be at  Flinders St Market I will have my stall set up and my Fabulous mum, Shirley will there to take orders for pet portraits and/or specialised artworks. Or help you pick out some art cards, prints or an original artwork. Or you can also decorate a square for me to use to make cranes out of. While Susanna from  Really Useful Pots and I run our  Making in the Market session #5 - Making creatures from clay, there are still seats available so come on down and get messy.

On Sunday I will be at Gallery One for the opening of the SALA exhibition Elements that I have 4 paintings in and together are called 5 elements Wu Xing.
Cards and prints of these artworks will be available shortly if you want to 
pre-order them please email me naomi@wonkiekneeart.com

The exhibition is on at Gallery One in Mitcham from the 3rd of August until the 24th of August. Weekdays 10:30 -4:30 pm. Weekend open studios 11-4pm.
The exhibition opening is on Sunday the 3rd of August from 2-4pm.
I will be in residence for Open Studio Sessions on Saturday
the 16th and 23rd of August. 

During these open studio sessions I will be creating the coffee cups for the 1000 cups of cranes exhibition in March 2015. You will be able to come to the Gallery and colour in a square at the drawing table. If you are lucky you can have a coffee with me and be a part of the whole process, watch me fold the crane take the photo and even contribute to the coffee cup. 

The backgrounds featured in this weeks images are the flowers and grass in the backyard, the cat's biscuits, piece of paper and the cranes are made from painted plastic, a ramekin, a leaf, painting number 4 for SALA exhibition at Gallery One The Vermillion Bird of the South, shopping bag, the floor of my studio with packing material clouds and wooden frame wedges as buildings, my cat Tiger's Belly, raisin toast with butter, piece of paper, the tail of The Vermillion Bird, the box of laminate sheets, a t-shirt, a handmade bag, a basket, a case and a pot, pencil shavings and a rug, record player, neck ties and earrings, bottles on a tie dye bedsheet.

Last weekend I was at The Flinders St Market. 
515. 100 Percent Hand Made - Uanfink. Sue from Uanfink makes handcrafted and recycled gifts. Mum bought me a hat to match my personalised Wonkie Knee Art, art jacket. It is very warm and is a really nice hat!

517. Pretty pencils - efrossini chaniotis. Efrossini creates colourful caricatures of people and other colourful imagery.

The cranes in this image were decorated by Ella from The lunch Lady. Ella is Anelis's daughter, she had a ball colouring in a number of squares for me. I folded and addition crane for her.

If you have found one of these cranes please keep it until march 2015 when you will be asked to bring it to the exhibition opening night, register your email address HERE so I can send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. So your crane can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.
