Here’s a couple of pics of my fan for the exhibition and fundraiser at Espionage Gallery, in Adelaide. All funds raised from sales will go to the people of the Tohoku region of Japan.
My fan was a little rushed, so it could have been a lot better! Yes, I’ve gotten myself too busy for my own good, again! After July I will be able to breathe a bit easier. I just have to learn to take on what I can handle, and no more! I guess you live and you learn.
It was a challenging surface to paint on as well, so considering these two hurdles, time and surface, I’m reasonably happy with how they turned out. If I had more time, I would have added more detail and perhaps a pattern around the outside. Hopefully someone will love it enough to buy it and give to charity at the same time.
The press release reads…
Espionage Gallery in collaboration with That Fresh have joined forces to help the people of the Tohoku region of Japan in the wake of the recent Disasters which have befallen Japan. In an effort to raise money in help of support for disaster relief, Espionage Gallery and That Fresh purchased 50 blank Japanese Uchiwa Traditional fans and gave them out to 50 artists from accross Australia and New Zealand.
These 50 fans were painted or decorated by some of Australia’s leading artists in an effort to help raise funds. The fans will be for sale for 1 week at Espionage Gallery for the set price of $60 per fan. 100% of the funds raised from the sale of the fans will be donated directly to the Japanese Red Cross in an effort to fund disaster relief.
