Thrilled to announce that we are finalists in the 2017 Lloyd Rees Art Prize to be held at the Colville Gallery, Hobart in July. This is our entry: ‘Freycinet I&II’ oil on gesso on Dibond.
LLOYD REES ART PRIZE 2017
We’re starting this blog to document our creative collaboration. My name is Anne Penman Sweet and I’m a professional artist (painter) and I’ve been exhibiting in London as well as here in Australia for many years. My partner’s name is Dr Jesse Shore (the brains behind the operation) who has a long and distinguished science background (as Senior Curator of Sciences at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney), particularly in the area of science communication/exhibitions.
We meet in our appreciation and wonder of the natural world and natural phenomena, and our desire to share the magic of what we’ve seen and experienced.
In the following few posts I’ll give a potted history of the various themes of my work over the last decade or so, and also document the tentative beginnings of our collaborative work which began a couple of years ago.
In the meantime if you’re interested, here are our other websites to peruse.
Anne is represented by the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London/NYC.
We are happy to announce that Sweet+Shore are finalists in the Lethbridge 10000 Small Scale Art Award 2017 Brisbane, Australia.
We are pleased to be finalists in the 2017 Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize
