Heart Show Art Show

It was almost one year ago that I had my very first exhibition at Pandemonium Café and I’ve been exhibiting my artwork there ever since. The owner kindly offered me a permanent wall space to do with what I please. It was a lucky break and a wonderful opportunity that Ive been really grateful for. Now I have an opportunity to also participate in a very worthy charity event that Pandemonium Café are hosting next month. Currently I’m working on a few pieces to donate to the Heart Show Art Show fundraiser. I'm looking forward to checking out the other art that will be there! But hey, if you can’t make it along on the night you can always go check out my current exhibit there called “Peace. Is the Harvest of Love. Birds.”


About the Heart Show Art Show:

Variety Queensland, a children's charity which supports disadvantaged children will be holding their inaugural Heart Show Art Show fundraising event at Pandemonium Café in Paddington at 7.00pm on Friday 6th March. Art enthusiasts will be treated to delicious tasty treats and funky DJ beats at the 70s retro style café. There will be a cheap cash bar available and the opportunity to get creative by spraying, painting, chalking, drawing, stencilling and decorating the Pandemonium Café car park walls in old school street style fashion! What fun! Entry to the exhibition is $15 and all art will be available to buy for a small cost of $25, with all of the proceeds from the sales of the donated artworks going to Variety Queensland.

Places are strictly limited, so to book, please phone Sarah at Variety Qld on 3368 3321 or email Sarah.

Hello Tracey,

It's great to learn a little more about you. I feel we are becoming friends through your shadow shots but... I don't know much else about you my dear.

I did spy into your etsy shop when you first listed you new pics. I loved the one of the asian dolls, I shoulda bought it. I paused a bit too long and now it is gone! Will you do a second run? I'm actually interested in buying 2 of the same from you - if that is possible.

I did take your advice and shortened the amount of posts per page for my blog. I do get a bit photo crazy. Mainly because I will be printing the blog through Blurb into a book and want photo options and not all the extra work of sorting through a year's worth of photos. I can't believe I've been blogging for almost a year!

Anyway, I'm so grateful to Amy over at Spitting Ink since she introduced me to your blog.

Happy creating! - Alissa

How I wished I lived on the other side of the globe! I would be warmer and I'd have a fun art charity event to go to!! It does sound like a very good time and a worthy charity. You'll just have to have a double helping of fun for me:)

M.Kate said...

Hey T, I wish I could just pop over to that Pandemonium cafe, see your art, even better see you :D
If only we have more of such cafe. Happy WEEK T.

Chrisy said...

...hopin to get over there...

Scooter and Jinx said...

Having a permanent wall space at that cafe is fantastic for you. I did know you exhibited there but didn't realise it was an ongoing arrangement. Great news for me because it means that I can see your work whenever I visit Brisbane! I wish I was visiting at the time of the charity art show. Hope it's a huge success for all involved. Decorating the car park walls would be a blast!

The art show sounds like a lot of fun.

Hey Harriet said...

Alissa,

Thanks! Yes, I've ordered more prints (including the one you mentioned) and should have them ready to list in the shop in the next day or two :)

Well, having seen your exhibition space at Pandemonium, I know I will be back regularly to check it out.

Eat your hearts out girls, because I have a Tracy original, one of several given to each committee member of BrisStyle when we had our meeting at Pandemonium a week or so back. It is the lone item on our fridge door, so you know that it's special!

Kirsty said...

Hello! I had lunch at Pandemonium cafe yesterday and picked up one of your flyers with your blog address and here I am. I love your blog and I love your artwork! I wanted to buy one of your paintings but they were all sold :(

I hope to make it to the heart show art show!

Bec said...

Wow Tracy, I just read in the comments here that all your artworks in Pandemonium are sold already! Boy that was quick!!!!! I'm not at all surprised though - they really were gorgeous, and I loved how they made you stop and really study them. Anyway, I would love to come to this event - whether I can get there or not might be another question.... I'd love to try and get babysitters and bring Matt too...sounds like a lovely evening out!!!
