Eye on the prize

We have some really talented artists and designer makers right here in Banyule and I just wanted to mention two of them today who are also my friends as well as fellow past and present Banyule Arts and Culture Advisory Committee members.
Terrigenous Relics by Lene Kuhl Jakobsen,
Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award 2015 exhibition
The Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award 2015 exhibition opening was held on Wednesday night at the Manningham Art Gallery in Doncaster and ceramic artist Irianna Kannellopoulou won the Valley of the Arts Award for her work titled 'Where the wild things roam', while Lene Kuhl Jakobsen is an exhibitor with her work 'Terrigenous Relics'.  The exhibition is on until 29 August.
Terra Forms by Lene Kuhl Jakobsen, Akar - Form exhibition, Mr Kitly
Lene is having a busy month in that she is also involved with another exhibition opening tonight 'Akar - Form' at the very cool Mr Kitly at 381 Sydney Road in Brunswick, which is a hop, skip and jump away from my client Avant Card.  Her work 'Terra Forms' is the hero image currently featured on the Mr Kitly website.
I've been working on the upcoming Postcard of the Year Awards being held next month in Melbourne for Avant Card where the top 3 winners from the past year will be decided by some of Australia's best creative minds in the advertising and media industry.  Last year's Postcard of the Year Award winner was the very cute spinning wheel card for The Lego® Movie.


  1. Lovely to see Lene's work. I trust the exhibitions are a great success.

    1. It's lovely to hear from you Lynne! Lene's work is beautiful - I have a number of her pieces at home and can only eye off some of Irianna's :-). Love from Miss Rosanna x
