Kiss my palette

Okay youre a visual artist. Imagine youve got four minutes to show your portfolio to a gallery director in the hope of finding that perfect match the directors gallery and your artwork. Then you get to spend four minutes with another director. Then another...

Thats Visual Arts Speed Dating and its on at the Linnaeus Estate in Broken Head on Valentines Day, February 14, from 3-5pm.

This year theres a mixture of gallery directors and curators from this region, Sydney and the Gold Coast. Last year many artists and gallery directors formed lasting partnerships....(and its also great fun.)

Participating gallery directors include Steven Alderton (Lismore Regional Gallery), Iain Dawson (Tim Olsen Gallery, Paddington), Charles Hewitt (Charles Hewitt Gallery, Woollahra), Liz Buchmann (Byron Fine Art), plus Vaughn Pinxit and Louise Greg from the new gallery Artizanzoo in Ballina.

Linnaeus Estate is supporting the event so there will be plenty of time for relaxed networking over tea, coffee and delicious cakes made by the Linnaeus chef. Very sophisticated indeed.

Artists interested in speed dating their way to the top, should register their interest now by emailing Melitta at

Registrations close January 30.

For more info phone Melitta at Arts Northern Rivers on 6628 8120.
