How’s this for a great example of why I blog. The very talented Tracy Potts introduced herself via the blog last week. She’s currently having an exhibition at the Anita Traverso Gallery in Melbourne, and given she’s a regular reader of my strange wee collection of sometimes creative, sometimes dog-inspired, often times design-oriented, occasionally foodie posts here at TSL, she thought I may be interested. Boy, was I ever!
Tracy graduated from the University of South Australia with a Fine Arts degree majoring in printmaking. Now based in Melbourne, her mixed media work is represented in private collections both in Australia and Europe. Regular readers will know I have a massive soft spot for great fibre art, and I think Tracy’s work looks just fantastic. I just wish I was going to be in Melbourne to see the exhibition in person.
If you’d like to read a little more about Tracy’s work, Dylan Rainforth from Art Guide has written about her influences. Otherwise, if you’re in Melbourne, you could head down to the Anita Traverso Gallery at 7 Albert Street, Richmond before the 24th November, and be sure to let me know how fab’ the show is…
