Up-coming Blanche biz…

22 07 2012

Sorry it’s so hard to read – those pdf/jpeg transfers are a bugger to post.

Anyhoo, opening bevies at Gallery Funaki on the  31st July (…that’s Melbourne, for those who aren’t hip…and can’t read the big mo-fo logo!!)





Blanche biz…

4 10 2010

The morning after the NGA opening Minnie and the Gang swung by the Glassworks to catch Blanchie and her show…

…and what a bottler it is. Pure Tilden, with her signature designer edge. 

And what a bonus it was to meet brand guru Ty Bukewitsch – who’s largely behind the hot edgy graphics that mark her cracker installation and promotional style. Class will out, eh.

Meanwhile we had a lovely time trying on the goodies…

…before wandering through the Glassworks, catching up with all the lovelies…

…on the way to Klaus-meister’s studio…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fer et Verre is on until November the 18th. Not one to be missed.

It was wonderful to finally connect with Blanche  – the Gang’s recent forays to Melbs have been fast and furious (and totally Granny-bent) so consequently we’ve not yet made the pilgrimage to her new studio. Next time, for sure. Meanwhile we’ll just savour our brief  ‘Berra fix…





A taster…

Just in from Blanchie; an appetite whetter…

…and…

The exhibition’s opening at the Glassworks on Wednesday (for those not attending the Foundation Dinner at the NGA)

Blanchie at the forefront of artists’ move into the city…

16 05 2009

Blanchie

 

Pooh just sent through this ripper article in last Sunday’s Age about the arts push for inner city studio spaces. Thank goodness somebody’s being proactive about it. Ah, Marvellous Melbourne – what can we say! Actually Blanchie had only just moved in when the Gang was last down there and we’d planned a studio visit but ended up running out of time. Bit of a bummer really – but we’ll make up for it next trip…





Just a little teaser…

Hey honey, we’re home!!

But only just – and off to work today, so no time yet for serious bloggin’. 

Thought we’d just leave you with a taster – a snap of Blanchie on the plane over (sitting in the seat in front of us!) What a lovely start to our Adelaidian Adventure…

We had a lovely visit from Blanche and Marcus (who are holidaying in Tathra, as we speak) on Thursday night; they came to dinner literally glowing after spending the day at the beach…the only place to be during the present heat wave…

It’s well-earned relaxation for Blanchie, who’s plumb in the throes of moving studio in Melbourne. And there’s plenty of exciting news to come, including the Corning Museum of Glass’s very recent acquisition of one of her fabulous bandoliers. Pics and snippets soon.

Otherwise, for more info, check out her website.





Blanchie in the Top 100 list…

The print’s a little hard to read (didn’t scan very well!!) but the long and the short of it is that Blanchie picked up a gong in the 2008 highest achievers/movers and shakers list.

Mind you, we didn’t need a list Blanchie – we already know you’re all that. Congratulations darl, and here’s hoping 2009 is even MORE stellar…

Shame on us – can’t imagine how we managed to miss Blanchie’s website.
