Inking Up opening and exhibition catalogue

Thanks to everyone who attended the exhibition opening of Inking Up at Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum on Saturday, 5 September, and for your warm responses to the work.

One of the day's many highlights was seeing the exhibition catalogue for the first time. It was the inspired idea of Gallery Director Jennifer Kalionis to present the catalogue as a USB stick in the form of a familiar tattoo motif (the anchor was our unanimous choice). The USB contains Dr Thomas Middlemost's catalogue essay and selected works by Inking Up artists Clayton Tremlett, Rona Green and myself.

Below is a montage of more of the day's highlights. Click on image to enlarge.

Inking up continues until 18 October. Full details are on the gallery's website HERE.
