Your Art Exhibition

If you plan on having an art exhibition, there are a few things to consider before jumping in at the deep end.

Artists selling art should consider the following points.

  1. Is the art gallery a reputable one and how long has it been in business
  2. What will the cost to you, the artist, be
  3. Consider the cost of getting your art to the art gallery
  4. What about transport costs and insurance, both theft and damage in transit
  5. Does the gallery have public liability insurance
  6. Does the gallery ask for you to waive your copyright
  7. Will the art gallery advertise and promote your art exhibition
  8. Is the art show to be all yours or a shared one
  9. Will the art exhibition advance your standing as an artist in the wider art community
  10. Does the art gallery have good access

While this list of items may appear daunting, do not be put off by it.

Take your time checking the preparations for the show and good luck

Snakes Alive

Today is a reminder that snakes are well and truly on the move right now.

The warmer than expected weather is causing snakes to stir from their winter sleep into activity.

The first thing they will do, after warming up in the Sun, will be to look for water.

There are pockets of bush throughout out cities that may still have snakes living in them. If you live near such a spot, or if you live in a country town, be on the lookout for snakes trying to find water.

I myself stepped out of the front door to see a Dugite snake slithering away from the plants near the bird bath.

Bushwalkers should take extra care when walking. It is all too easy to come across a King Brown, a Dugite or a Tiger Snake.

Australia is a wonderful place to live. But it can be lethal too.

Protect Your Dog From Snakes

Snake bite is a real threat – Protect your dog from snakes

It is that time of year again. Spring always brings the threat of snake bites in Australia so it is important to learn how to protect your dog from snakes.

The Forecast

The Weather bureau has released the long range forecast for Australia and it is not good. They are predicting a higher than normal amount of dry days plus warmer average temperatures for spring.

This will bring snakes out of hibernation and they will start to seek food and water.

The “Animal Ark” organization will be putting on  workshop to help protect your dog from snakes. The aim of the workshop is to enable owners to train their pets to leave a snake alone when they see it, rather than think it is a toy.

Two one day workshops titled “Snake Avoidance Training For Dogs” will be run in Bunbury, Western Australia, by Mr David Manning on October 13th and 14th.

Disability and Accessibility

2 Wise Monkeys - Disability and Accessibility - A Frontline Workshop

Disability and accessibility are often spoken about in the same sentence. Anyone with a disability knows only too well that access to things most of us take for granted is at best OK and more likely awkward, difficult or just not possible.

In this workshop, you will learn to understand the true meaning of the phrase disability and accessibility.  This workshop, by 30 Foot Drop, focuses on training staff who are in direct contact with customers. Empathy and communication plus accessibility issues will be discussed.

This free workshop is a two-hour session which may well help you in striving to be a better person as a whole. It will be held between 2 and 4 pm on Wednesday, October the 10th, at Maker + Co, 75b Victoria Street, Bunbury, WA 6230.
