An interesting looking seminar, is coming up at the CCP. Have look it’s always a good idea to get another’s perspective on “photography”. From the web site, “This seminar takes a speculative, imaginative approach. Fereday will begin with a slide presentation and informal lecture, discussing her own work with reference to a range of artists from Hildegard of Bingen to Linda Sproul. A workshop component follows with practical exercises to demonstrate the profound and mysterious relationship between seeing, knowing, memory and desire. Discussion is welcome. ”

The Seminar is run by renowned Australian Artist Susan Fereday. http://www.ccp.org.au/news.php?id=193

Kim Lawler

Kim Lawler, [a former pic student]
Between Lines
Tue 29 Sep 09 to Sat 10 Oct 09

gallery hours: Tue – Fri 11am to 5pm
Sat 12pm to 4pm


“Beyond romance or nostalgia, Lawler’s lucid visual studies reveal the aesthetic beauty of the stories being written and rewritten onto this responsive and at times fragile environment.” Amy Barclay, curator

Between Lines comprises a series of aerial photographs taken in the Kimberley, far north Western Australia. This remote area is embedded with stories of Indigenous and non-Indigenous inhabitants, transitory visitors and scarred by multinational companies resource development. The artist, Kim Lawler, is concerned with markings, both natural and constructed, that tell stories of places, transitions and interruptions that occur within the landscape.

Between Lines is informed by Lawler’s experience of living in these regions and local perspectives on the displacement of people and their consequential relationship to the land that has taken place. It is also informed by the opposing qualities of abandon and connection that occur as the stories within these landscapes continue to unfold.

This was forwarded to me by Mick.

It’s Mad Dame annoying you all again.

But! This is a Casting call!
This is a great opportunity to be involved in something a little bit different, and fun.

Or even if you really want to see how it all happens.

Calling for

  • extras
  • assistant/work experience
  • behind the scenes stills or video
  • back up MUA (for natural)

Major project.

Brief description of the shoot:
A Wedding scenario – an unlikely situation that can cause havok and chaos to that ‘one special day’ with a real ‘F&@# you’ attitude within the characters involved, involving a comical aspect. The setting is highly stylised, set up in a function centre.
Main characters are tbc, a bride, a groom and a dominatrix.

I require some ‘extras’ to play guests at the wedding setting, each person will have a certain pose and idea, expression happening within the whole image.

Shoot details
Date: Saturday 4th October 2008
Time: 12 pm – 2 pm
Venue: The Club Caroline Springs, Western Fwy, Victoria
Catering: provided
MUA: provided

There are NO age restriction for extras. (But under 18’s will need their parents to sign a model release)
Have own transport to the venue.

Formal wear, what you would wear to a wedding.
Girls – pastel like colours if possible, no black. If in doubt, bring alone a selection of outfits.
Guys – Long sleeved shirt, bring a tie for option, suit like pants and dark shoes.

Being involved in this project is voluntary. The final image/s will be emailed for folio use. Prints hmm maybe. All shoots are catered too – no one goes hungry!

I have to plan one more shoot, (An amazing funeral scene!!!) most likely within the following week, which i need extras for as well, if interested mention this for those details. TBA

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.


End of Year Exhibition

2008-09-14 — posted by at 22:19

Yes folks, it’s that time of year, the end of year exhibition is not far away and we need to start organising things like invitations and publicity.

As part of that process we are asking for submissions for an image for the invitation.

We require high resolution files between 180 and 360 dpi, in RGB and no larger than 15 cm x 12 cm. We prefer photoshop files, but will accept tiffs and at a pinch we will accept jpegs.

Images are due this Friday, either put the image in the box outside the store, or email a small jpeg to stuart at pic dot org dot au.

The chosen image will be potentially used for all areas of advertising, you therefore need to have a model release form to allow us to publish the work, if it has a recognisable face in it.
