After last year's significant challenges and extended show dates caused by statewide govt imposed Covid restrictions now happily behind us in Melbourne, it's on again! This year's brooch show is a free entry event as it was last year, which is when I discovered the event in it's 13th year. Last year I entered works based on prints from my still life paintings, which sold out at the opening event. So this year feeling like a veteran at this, I am entering again, however with brooches that are completely different! For those reading this and who are inspired to create something for the event - last year it was bigger than the rival event in New York, making it the largest annual brooch show globally - by all means go for it. Just remember to stay within the guidelines of 10cmx5cmx3cm as each and every entry is checked and painstakingly measured - which is no mean feat when there are over 300 entries and those that don't measure up to the ruler are excluded! For full details about the show, including FAQs, the online entry form, entry deadlines, etc. your're welcome to visit the CAS website
A recap on my entries from last year
Case 5 from the second Eltham event last year, second row on the left, showing photos of the works with red dots, to indicate they have sold. This is how the works are displayed once they have sold. If they sell at a Try and Buy event, they can be taken home straight away. If purchased online from the CAS website, they are made available to buyers after the show.
Stay tuned for updates... more posts to follow!
