AUSTRALIAN PRACTITIONERS CELEBRATING WORLD CYANOTYPE DAY 2019
This exhibition brings together Australian exponents of the cyanotype process to create works on fabrics as part of the A Smith Gallery (Texas, USA) Flag Installation and traveling exhibition for World Cyanotype Day, September 28, 2019.
This work will be first shown at The Maud Street Photo Gallery, Brisbane, in August 2019 and will then travel to the USA to be part of the two international exhibitions at the A Smith Gallery (Texas, USA) in September and at PhotoNola, New Orleans, USA in December.
Wednesday – Sunday, 1pm-6pm
Most ancient peoples had no word for the colour blue. They could not explain the sky nor the ocean. Poetry and love letters suffered. Once “blue” entered the world the earth rattled and chimed, sending forth “turquoise” and “sapphire.” The Navajo and the Jewellers rejoiced. Poets wept. Picasso danced and Policemen beamed. Mary smiled.
Everyone in the world is cordially invited to celebrate World Cyanotype Day at A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas on Saturday, September 28 by creating cyanotype flags of their interpretation of the theme Land/Sea/Sky on white cloth, each 12×12 inches (30×30cm).
Strung together, the flags symbolize the beautiful planet we all inhabit. The installation will hang in the gallery until October 21. The flags will then be taken to New Orleans to the Healing Arts Center for an exhibition beginning in December for PhotoNOLA until the end of Mardi Gras.
