Time is running out for LISA FOLINO’S campaign to exhibit her photography in Venice! HELP!!!!

Do you remember my last blog post about my friend LISA FOLINO the FINE ART photographer? Lisa has been given an incredible opportunity to exhibit her work at the largest international art platform, The 2017 Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy.
We have been running a crowdfunding campaign on Hatchfund to help Lisa realise her lifelong dream.
We are in the final stages of the campaign and at this time, Lisa hasn’t met her goal. 😦 It takes a lot to ask a friend or acquaintance for help, but I really want to help Lisa make this journey to Venice – so I’m going to ask anyway 🙂

We are holding a raffle – tickets are $10 each – and you can purchase as many as you want. If we sell a minimum of 200 tickets, someone will be chosen to win one of Lisa’s prints.

Just imagine – you could have one of these awesome pieces of fine art photography in YOUR home!!!

All you have to do is:

1.Visit https://www.hatchfund.org/project/grace_and_truth and chose your donation level.

For example, if you donate $50 you’ll have 5 tickets in the raffle, $100 you’ll have 10 tickets, $10 you’ll have one ticket.

2. Come back here to this blog post and in the comments below tell me YOUR NAME and YOUR DONATION AMOUNT. The raffle will be drawn Friday night 4/28/17 at approx 8pm.

3. Remember, if you choose to support this campaign in any way, you will receive a CHARITABLE RECEIPT.

4. This is TIME SENSITIVE – this campaign finishes later on this week at MIDNIGHT FRIDAY 28TH APRIL.

My talented friend is exhibiting her photography in Venice and needs OUR help

I love photography – I love the way different people ‘see’ and express their views and feelings through their photography.

Let me introduce my beautiful friend Lisa Folino to you. She is a fine art photographer based in Los Angeles and creates some seriously beautiful work.

It has been a lifelong dream of hers to exhibit in the oldest and most prestigious art fair in the world – The Venice Biennale.

As fate would have it, a couple of months back, she received an exclusive invitation to exhibit her work in the Biennale.

Exhibits in this art fair reach over 300,000 people over a six-month period. Lisa’s participation in the Biennale opens the opportunity to expand her cultural reach globally.

An exhibition of this size and scale is WAY BEYOND her financial means, therefore I am asking you to ‘HELP ME TO HELP HER’ to get to Venice…

ANY DONATION would be greatly appreciated – no matter what size.

To read more about this campaign AND DONATE please visit http://www.hatchfund.org/project/grace_and_truth

Lisa is offering great ‘perks’ for all donations and support levels start from just $10 through to $15,000.

All support is tax deductible.

Thanks everyone for helping me to help a very talented fellow photographer 🙂

 

Sydney’s Sculpture by the Sea

Sydney’s ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ is a huge success every year, and 2016 was no exception.

Entries poured in from across the globe for the right to display artwork along Sydney’s famous Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk.

The crowds were huge and I visited with some friends and, of course my camera 🙂

My goal was to try and photograph the sculptures WITHOUT any people in them ~ very challenging, but I did manage to for quite a few photos.

This years winning entry was ‘Change Ahead’ by Johannes Pannekoek…

There were plenty of other sculptures to view and enjoy along the sensational coastal walk.

My favourite was the blue and white child ~ this was a very striking sculpture. She looked and felt very lonely on the clifftop overlooking the sea.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the other sculptures along the walk and finished up having lunch at The Bondi Icebergs Club overlooking the Beach!! Ah Bliss 🙂

Enjoy the photos.

Angel Place Sydney…or photographs of birdcages :)

Angel Place is a lane way that runs between George & Pitt Street Sydney.

Over the years it has been decorated with various ‘art forms’ and these ‘birdcages’ have been there for a while…

Last week I was in the city, so I thought it was time I checked out ‘Angel Place’ with my camera 🙂

Enjoy the pics 🙂 {click on the first photo to start the slideshow.}
