I have been honoured to be appointed the feature artist at this year’s Winmalee Artfest exhibition. I will be there on opening night and would love to meet with you if you can make it. I will have 11 of my water colour and pen, ink and wash works on display.

Here is a short segment from their website about the show:

 Winmalee High School’s 21st Annual Autumn Artfest in 2012!

A fantastic event not to be missed! 

The 21st Annual Winmalee Autumn Artfest will be held on the 4th May, 5th May & 6th May at Winmalee High School in the Lower Blue Mountains.  Investment pieces are available for the serious collectors, or for those looking for a unique gift or something very special for the home, there are many high quality art and craft pieces available at very reasonable prices.

Artfest has developed a very large following and draws artists not only from the local community, but also from art communities right across Australia.  Artfest is well recognised as one of the biggest and best art exhibitions in the Blue Mountains.

Hundreds of artworks are displayed for sale in various media including oil, water colour, silk and mixed media.  There is also a multitude of craftwork available such as timber products, millinery, pottery, glass, leatherwork, dolls and jewellery.

Purchases can be made by cash or credit cards. It is worthwhile remembering that 25% of all sales is retained by the school to enhance our teaching and learning programs.

Opening night is Friday 4th May at 7.00pm and entry is $15.00, which includes catalogue and catered supper.  The remainder of the weekend is $5.00 per person and also includes a catalogue.  (Primary school aged children attending with their parents are FREE of charge).

Artfest is open Saturday 9am – 8pm and Sunday 10am – 4pm.  The Artfest Café is open all weekend.  With each entry ticket to the exhibition, you have a chance in the lucky door prizes.
