Weekend Adventures

Pin It

Oh dear, it’s Monday night and I haven’t posted some news. That’s because I’ve been adventuring and having X-rays on my back. I have had news that our boys did well at Newtons on the weekend and I’ll have more news on that soon. But for now, here’s some iPhone pics from my journeys.

Good timez m8

Pin It

I’m part of a show at M.A.R.S. Gallery in Port Melbourne. I had heard about a possibility of being a part of the show, but it didnt look like my work was going to be ready in time. Unfortunately I missed out on having my work ready for the opening, but the curator liked my work and still wanted me to be a part of it. It’s an amazing opportunity, so I’m pretty excited. It is open for another 2 weeks I think and its in the upstairs gallery.

 

In bmx related news, Liam and I ran/did a demo at a comp out in Kilmore yesterday. It was a lot of fun and hopefully everyone that was present enjoyed it too.

Let’s Ride Jam Photos

Pin It

I just thought I’d post a bit of a photo gallery here of the photos from our successful ‘Let’s Ride’ jam on April 7th, 2012. We managed to raise $850 for Harvey and Paddy which will help them reach their dreams. Have a browse through and make sure you get out to the next jam.

A MASSIVE THANKS to all the sponsors, HOFFMANN BIKES, COLONY, STOWAWAY, ELITECYCLEIMPORTS, FOCALPOINTBMX, and not to mention the YMCA. Without these guys the jam would not have happened.

Gallery Opening

Pin It

Last night we (VCA 3rd year) had our opening at the student gallery. It went pretty well and although the install was rather stressful we got it together in the end and opted for a salon style hang for the main wall. The second room had two video projections and a large silver geliten print. My video was one of them. Here is a photo from the show. I am applying for a show at George Paton Gallery with my friend Josh, who skates as well as being an artist. We had a tute with the curator so hopefully that will put is in good stead for our application! Thanks to everyone who turned up and it was good to see a few bmx guys getting a bit cultured and enjoying the free wine and beerz.

As many of you will know, I am a family man. My family is everything to me, almost as much as bikes are. Here is a photo that good friend Jack Kelly shot of me and my wee child, Evelyn, a few months back.
