Well, wasn't The Box Project...

...an amazing show?  It's come and gone, and it was mind-boggling.  You can see the start of this year's action here and here, and in this post, some amazing works by local artists.

Here are some of my favourites:



Madonna of the Discarded, Alison Masters, side view showing both the vacuum cleaner version and painting.

This raving beauty is by Andrea Revoy!

Part of the 'I Was Here' project by Alison Masters.  It included Gelli prints, clay and paintings



Laura Leeder with her lovely painting

Win Dinn with her Valley Fortune boxes

This rooster by Anne Fetterly was a knockout

Maureen's goddess was fabulous...check out the shoulders and mid-section especially.


Gorgeous clay by Lorene Lyons



There were so many wonderful pieces, it was truly hours of looking and drooling.  Were my camera skills only up to the challenge of photographing amidst the crowds that saw the show.

  7. Are you kidding me? These works are phenomenal.
    The artists really responded to THIS show. Alison Masters' Madonna of the Discarded is absolutely astonishing. A vacuum cleaner AND a painting of it? WOW!
    And I love the bounty of the womb of Maureen's goddess plus the "shawl" on her shoulders - simply brilliant.
    Great to see a photo of yourself (and Laura Leader) with your terrific entries. Stunning - all of it.
    I sure envy you gals the artistic community you live in.

    1. Absolutely, Alice - I'm in full agreement. I do wish you'd been able to see it in person...hopefully that will happen the next time the Call & Response happens! xo

  8. Hi Win, you must have had a brilliant time such fabulous art work here. While I am here I will explain about the tax disc. In the UK we pay a road tax which used to be displayed on the car windscreen by means of a small coloured disc, these discs are not given to us anymore as the police are able to check that this has been paid on the internet but it has caused some problems as reminders are sent by post and sometimes they don't arrive or people have moved house and forget when it is due to be paid, the discs had the date on them when they should be renewed. Hope that explains what they are, Angela xXx

    1. It was a very creative time, Angela, and wonderful to show and see all the works that came out of the Call and Response. Thanks for the info on the tax discs - I can stop shaking my head in confusion now! :D

  9. Gracious - I had no idea there would be so much variety. This would be like going to an art museum Win. What an amazing gathering. I have never seen anything like it. Love yours and Laura's, of course but Andrea's made me laugh out loud - that's a HOOT!!! So is the vacuum. And that rooster is amazing. I so love reading/seeing your posts... this was INCREDIBLE!!! Xj.
