I forgot all about our Blog. Growing old is really a pain in the memory bank. Then again I have been busy with a number of projects. In fact can they be called that?

Anyway I have decided to make a conscience effort to post comments on a regular basis about the happenings here at Colour City Creatives. First up let me say the name, Colour City Creatives, has been a topic of discussion for awhile now and we have arrived at the conclusion it stays.

If you missed the Orange Wine Week Exhibition then sad for you as it was spectacular in many ways. New artists have joined our team of Creatives and they supplied works that added a vibrant colour to the Exhibition. We sold a shit load, so to speak. Plus lots of return visits by locals and visitors alike and a few new faces strolled through the gallery areas.

It still surprises me though that new works by Jane Tonks hang and hang and hang in our gallery but few seem to roll over to a sale. Her works are large, I know, so the place to hang is always a question, but with the number of businesses in the Central Tablelands and Central West who could brighten up their premises with art it is a wonder they don't discuss options with artists for possible short or long term loan at a price.

Next up is the ladies from the CWA  and the colour theme continues. I've viewed the paintings this morning as they either lean against the wall waiting patiently to be hung or have already been put up for your enjoyment. Two words describe the works and they are, colour as mentioned, and flowers. Lots of flowers. Everywhere you look it is flowers and enough variety to fill a large garden. Flowers in pots, in the garden, in a bunch, on their own, mixed in with other fauna, standing up, lying down, you name it they've painted it.

Well, not quite. You see there is always one and on this occasion it's Dennis Clayton the artist you have when you need a bit of a laugh. His work is a stand out for all the wrong reasons.

Finally President Phil is setting up an audio and video room in one of the unused studios. The ideea is to produce interesting short videos and later short films. He is calling the venture, "Salmon Flathead". Recent test projects will be posted to the Blog soon.

Take care and make art your passiion.
