Nine weeks later, nine contributors, and the Living Wall at CPM continues to grow.
Paper is available for 'Edge' comments plus plenty of space on the wall for personal 'edge' marks & linkages. All welcome!

Refuge(e) Exhibition CPM Member Heather Matthew

Harley, a rescued Greyhound is also a refugee and looking for a home. He had a wonderful time at the opening of Heather's terrific exhibition Refuge(e) and every CPM member should look in and see the works.
Michael took this picture of Harley and Me (nothing to do with that sickly movie), as we walk through his installation at the entrance of CPM that set the scene and supported the theme of the exhibition

The Edge - a development

I've been working on small A5 or 15 x 10cm postcards about the destruction of unwanted Greyhounds once they finish racing, or deemed too slow. Over 5000 just disappear in NSW, and only 1% Australia wide (there's 20,000 Greyhounds) are re-homed. Most don't survive between the ages of 2 - 4 years. In the past, Greyhounds were dropped over the edge of cliffs south of Sydney, which took me on the path of The Edge. I thank Michael for the connection, I've just been making art to see what happens.
