'Initial' was an exhibition in 2 parts curated by Judith Duquemin at the art space run by SASCA - the Student Association of Sydney College of the Arts.  It was the first exhibition in the space and featured works by students undertaking their Master of Visual Arts.

I exhibited a number of my cast works -  in which paintings were cast in aluminium.

HORTICULTURE - South, Level 6, 241 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills - 1 September-12 September, 1998

'Horticulture' was an exhibition at 'South' curated by Christopher Dean.  It included Billy Apple, Michael Butler, Liz Day, Christopher Dean, Chris Fortescue, Joerg Hubmann, Angelina Marcon, Elizabeth Pulie, Eldred Wisdom and myself.

I exhibited another version of the flower tray  in 'By Arrangement' that I had shown at CBD a couple of years earlier, except that this one used a selection of dried flowers so that they would last for the length of the exhibition.

CO-EXISTENCE - Hogarth Gallery, 7 Walker Lane, Paddington - 26 May-13 June 1998

'CO-EXISTENCE' was an exhibition organised as a fundraiser by AAAR! - Australian Artists Against Racism! - a group that included Vivienne Dadour, Ace Bourke and Jo Holder.  The opening coincided with National Sorry Day during National Reconciliation Week.
I think this was the first time that I created and exhibited a crocheted work - it was only a small work (maybe about 15 x 20 cm) and I think it was just coloured stripes.  I do remember that I used red, blue, white, black, yellow and red wool - the combined colours of the Australian and Aboriginal flags.  I sold it and I don't have a photo...  Here is the invite and list of artists...
