When Mel Baxter asked if I’d like to be part of the launch exhibition for Curvy 2010 at Nine Lives I was really, really, really honoured. It’s been a rough few months and the opportunity to hang my work besides the lovely likes of Courtney Brims, Lilly Piri, Beci Orpin and Bec Winnel was so spirit lifting! (Yes, yes, this is my daggy “You really like me!!!” moment!)
Tonight was the launch party and I was accompanied by Nick and Zoe. I won’t lie, I dread opening nights for art shows and stuff because I get really anxious. I’ve just started medication again this week to address said anxiousness and the first couple of weeks is usually really not fabulous so I was glad to have the company of my people. Especially because today was very not fabulous in the old brain area. Unfortunately tonight’s outing was soured when we were egged, and I copped most of it in my hair and on my polka dot dress. People can be real jerks. If I’d wanted to do a protein treatment I would have done it myself douchebags!
