Invitation to unveiling of Mary MacKillop Sculpture

I would like to invite all friends and collegues to the unveiling of Mary MacKillop's statue.
It will be transported from Fundere Fine Art Foundry in West Footscray in early March and positioned in place the week of the unveiling. Things are finally starting to fall into place and I am starting to feel excited about the coming events at last,although there is still a month to go before it happens. I've been talking with the architect and the cathedral officials about what is going on and I have the job of making the covering for the day of the unveiling.
This photo is the last I took at the foundry and I haven't seen the actual plinth it sits on yet, but the grounds of Mary MacKillop Plaza have almost been completed.

Meanwhile I have put in an expression of interest for another large project in Norwood and would love to be able to be involved in producing another artwork for South Australia. I won't know until 28th February as to whether I have been short listed to 3 artists. Wish me luck.
I am also participating in a Teapot workshop at the Jam Factory this weekend.

Hi Judy, seeing your sculpture of Mary MacKillop reminds me of one of my teacher's in grade school so many years ago; I still remember her name, Sister Mary Rene, I guess I was a holy terror to her back then. Looking forward to seeing your sculpture in her place of honor.
