Although it was assessment week at QCA,...

Judy Watson takes her plates to USA

Judy Watson, who recently commenced a new series of etchings with us, then took all her plates to the University of Virginia in October as part of her residency there. The students assisted her to print up proofs of the latest plates (a group of her assistants are seen here with Judy and their Lecturer) which are now winging...

Skopelos pie (Galaktopita)

No report from Skopelos would be complete without an obligatory taverna scene. Here, Judy Watson (left) and Barbie Kjar are about to take delivery of a complimentary Skopelos pie and a plate of preserved fruits from the wonderful Maria, whose family run the island’s best lunch-time taverna, at Glysteri beach. We made sure that Mats and...

A shipload of onlookers

With some of the furniture removed, BHE’s main room became a make-shift lecture room for 45 passengers from the cruise ship Orion on Sunday. What a nice crowd of interested art lovers, curators (not to distinguish them from art-lovers, of course) and sailors-to-be.

Basil and Judy show

Basil and visiting artist, Judy Watson, did some quick proofing of one of Judy’s new “Blue Mud Bay” prints in front of an audience of around 45 passengers from the cruise ship Orion at BHE last Sunday. Surprisingly, in spite of having a crowd, we managed to resolve several issues with the “blue” print in the course...

Beth works on Heron Island

Well, not actually ON Heron Island! Visting printer Beth Conway has been part of the team working on Judy’s Watson’s Heron Island Suite. Involving all five printers at various times, the prints are all etchings, but many also have screenprinted information incorporated into them, reflecting Judy’s interaction with QUT researchers on the island during her residency...

Basil works with Judy Watson in Brisbane

Judy is seen here applying a tusche wash to three aquatinted plates Basil brought with him from Darwin in November. In fact, Basil managed to carry 16kgs of zinc plate on Jetstar for his time with Judy, leaving himself 4kgs for his clothing for the week. Thanks for the loan of your T-shirts in Brisbane,...
