exciting news for Leanne ...

As some of you may already know I have been chosen as one of the 30 artists to take part in the Treetops Montessori School's inaugural 30x30x30 challenge!!!! 
they chose the artists from just over 90 applicants, so you can imaging just how thrilled and honoured I am to have been 
invited to participate.

I have included a "blurb" form the challenge website for you to read, but please check out the website and blog through the links I have created in this post to learn more. make sure you read up about the 30 artists who are taking part. some people are established artists and others are just emerging. I am super excited about the concept and am especially looking forward to the opening night to see all 900 works on display (on my hubby's birthday too). i think this is shaping up to be a  professional highlight for me in 2012 :)

here is the "blurb" form the people behind the challenge:

The Artists
Thirty (30) Artists, or art groups, will be challenged to complete thirty (30) works in thirty (30) days. The thirty (30) day period for the project shall be nominated by the Artist to suit their schedule, yet shall be within the period, 2nd March and 3rd September 2012. Artists are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone, try out new styles, experiment with materials, explore a new subject, take risks, work quickly and let the ideas flow. The art works do not need to be thirty (30) stand alone, finished pieces. They can be a collection of ideas, a record of an experiment in process, a study of a subject or technique, a story / narrative to share with others.

All Artists will be supplied with thirty (30) canvases (8 inches by 8 inches) on which to work, or on which to present works. The works can be of any medium including acrylic paint, oil paint, pastel, pencil, watercolour, mixed media, textile, jewellery, printmaking, photography, quilting, glass and ceramics. The only constraint is that all works shall be presented on the canvas ready for hanging. There are many options to display work to meet this criterion, such as temporarily fixing 3D objects like jewellery and textiles, or block mounting photographs and works on paper. If works are best framed at a later date by the purchaser, then they can be temporarily fixed to the canvas for display purposes only. 900 works, uniform in size but infinitely varied in content will be hung together at our unique and exciting exhibition.
