Thursday August 18th welcomed the grand opening of Bluethumb's flagship Melbourne gallery in Richmond. To celebrate, artists were invited to exhibit artworks to highlight diverse and unique local talent. I was honoured to be a part of this curation and lucky enough to have sold two pieces prior to opening night. With a mad rush to organise two replacements, everything fell into place for a grand event on a Wintery evening.
If you're in Melbourne and would love to immerse yourself in beautiful artwork, the gallery is located at 330 Bridge Road Richmond with opening hours Monday – Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm, Saturday – 10am to 4pm and late night viewing Thursday 'til 8pm.

Projects, local & abroad
The Random Image has evolved in the last six years, starting with an Etsy store in 2016 and growing over time to a small business working with local and international companies. With a photographic background spanning over 25 years, I think how lucky I am to have made a career in this industry and often have to pinch myself at how fortunate I am to have had such amazing opportunities.
Along with fine art prints, The Random Image offers art licensing which has opened doors to important and exciting projects. From London company Peter Millard & Partners and international design & art consultancy at The Artling, to local interior designers, online art galleries and collaborative work with Australian artists.
It's a busy time in the studio with lots of ideas on the go, inspiration is everywhere with Spring just around the corner. Magnolias are blooming, Cherry Plums are blossoming and Freesias are flowering. Stop by the shop to see what's new in store.
This year has certainly flown by. With August coming to a close, it's time to start planning The Random Image 2023 calendars. Pre-orders will open soon for those who wish to get in early. Keep an eye on your inbox and socials.
Lastly, a warm welcome to new subscribers, fellow artists and art lovers. Thank you for following, sharing and supporting a local artist & small business.
