The Red Shoes Network – Barefoot??
Is that not a contradiction in terms? Not when we’re bowling on Summer’s Eve! To reassure our bowling tutors on the night, no, we won’t actually be wearing heels even barefoot!
This amazing picture, “Overstepping”, is by Julie Rrap for which she won the Hermann’s Art Award in 2001. (See below for a brief bio of this talented Australian artist.)
Fun and Fancy will be in big supply as we bowl, nibble and sip our way into summer! The Rosanna Bowling Club members are happy to give us hints on how to roll those balls! Marie Cris is ready to tempt our tastebuds, and then we’ll pop upstairs into the main room for our Mini Market and Guest Speaker.
We’re Featuring Amy Revell – A cheery and supportive soul who inspires organisation. I was enthused by her book “Simply Organised” which I read while on a short holiday last month. I’ve come back home with fresh eyes and have made great inroads to feeling cleansed for the Christmas break. Amy will give us all some practical ideas for preparing for Christmas – you’ll leave enthusiastic with a fresh outlook on the month ahead.
To get you thinking, here’s a blog from Amy’s website simplyorganised.net

Notes on the artist: Julie Rrap’s involvement with body art and performance in the mid-70s in Australia continued to influence her practice as it expanded into photography, painting, sculpture and video in an on-going project concerned with representations of the body. Between 1986 and 1994 Rrap lived and worked in France and Belgium where she exhibited widely.
In 1995, she held a survey of her work at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne and in 2007, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney held a major retrospective of Rrap’s work titled Body Double, curated by Victoria Lynn.
Rrap has been short-listed for numerous major prizes including the Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award, 2002; the National Sculpture Prize in 2003 at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, and the prestigious Clemenger Contemporary Art Award at the National Gallery of Victoria, 2009.
