Green-Spotted Triangle Winged Woman lands at Montsalvat

Green-Spotted Triangle Winged Woman, formerly a vital part of the eighteen-strong Winged Women sister act (See Blog Post February 17) has gone solo. She has been selected as a finalist in the inaugural Rick Amor Print Prize, to be held at the Barn Gallery, Montsalvat.

The exhibition will be launched at 6 – 8 pm on Friday 8 April and runs until Sunday 22 May.

The Rick Amor Print Prize aside, Monsalvat's magnificent buildings and grounds are also worth a visit. Founded in the mid 1930s by Justus Jorgensen, it is Australia's oldest artist's colony. First time visitors can find directions on Melway Map 22 A8. For those without wheels, Montsalvat can be reached by bus 582 from Eltham Station.
