The Saturday Arts Club [29 Jun 2011|09:26pm]


I thought you might be interested in The Saturday Arts Club podcast:

The Saturday Arts Club

It's a light-hearted, intellectual look at theatre, performance and visual arts. There's also a quiz in each episode.

Anyway, aside from providing something for you to listen to, we really want people to get involved, whether it's their opinions or their work. If you have something that you'd like us to feature, get in touch through the website.

Sirius Gallery Hallowe'en Opening [29 Oct 2009|03:47pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Yes, we open in 2 days time - short notice I know, but we've had some technical difficulties with getting internet to happen here.

On the upside, we'll be at it for at least 12 hours, so there's plenty of time for people to drop in between any other commitments they may have arranged, and we'd love to see you down here!

Your $5 entry gets you a BBQ feed or two, access to portraiture and other workshops & demos, along with, throughout the afternoon, live music from the illustrious Kitsunegari, the enigmatic Lizzie Ballinger, and who knows who else later in the evening!

As a special internet offer, we're offering free admission to anyone who can name at least 3 of the 4 things our name is a reference to: to claim your complimentary invitation, either email your answers direct to sirus.gallery@gmail.com, and you'll be sent a flyer to print out by return email, or just rock up and give your answers to whoever's on the door on the day!

To participate in the workshops, please remember to bring along your own art supplies - whatever you'd like to work with: paints and other wet media are welcome as the workshops will mostly be outdoors. Furniture is also somewhat limited, so if you'd like to bring yourself down a camp chair, please do so.

Oh, and don't forget, it's a costume party, so go crazy with the Hallowe'en theme (but of course you knew that!)

Sirius Business [17 Sep 2009|11:03pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Evening All!

An announcement, for anyone who remembers this post - or anyone who missed it, for that matter - exciting news: 'tis no longer hypothetical!

A venue's been found, lease should be finalised by the end of the month - which means at this point, I can't yet give anyone an exact address, but...

We'll be in the Wynnum area, not inconceivably (:P) far from the water, or from other galleries and similar businesses, and even not far at all from public transport.

We (we being Pirate Arrrts, the parent company of this gallery project) also have a name for it:

Sirius Gallery.

All going according to plan, we'll be having a gala opening for Sirius, combined with a Hallowe'en party - midday to midnight (and possibly beyond), so -

Keen to get your work exhibited? Know someone who might be?

We'll be charging, as the post linked to above suggests, very reasonable rates, and there'll be a variety of space sizes available, from just a single 'postcard' (11 x 16cm) to the entire 80-something square metres. Most commonly we'll be offering what we'll be calling a 'flat' (1.8 x 1.28 metres, or 2.3 square metres, or thereabouts) for a weekly rental fee of $15. That includes display/curation & sales assistance, storage and security outside business hours (or during other events your work may not be 'appropriate' for), all marketing/exhibition event costs and absolutely no commission. When your work gets sold, you get every cent of your stated sale price. And said sale price is entirely up to you. We're more than happy to advise, but it's your decision.

We're open to all media, and all levels of experience - the wider the diversity of content, the better!

If you're keen to be part of this, want to book some space to display work from Hallowe'en onwards, want more information, or maybe even want to help out with the day to day operation of the place (volunteers can expect to be worshipped as somewhat deity-like) please email hermesdotkempatgmaildotcom !

Again, as the above-linked post suggests, this gallery is being run by Pirate Arrrts - a new Brisbane company keen to develop and encourage a wide variety of insolent and irreverant creative practices, in both the visual and performing arts.

So there will be regular events occurring in the space, most notably sunday aRTfternoons... a more relaxed approach to the usual game of opening an exhibition on a Friday night, repleat with black ties, pretension and wine wine w(h)ine - expect instead BBQ's, live music, untutored 'classes' (some of which will be life drawing sessions, and more - all for a minimalist entry fee.

So even if you're not an 'artist' per se yourself, you're more than welcome - more the merrier!

(mods, if, as I suspect you may, feel that this post has devolved into rampant commercial pluggery, please accept my heartfelt apologies, and feel free to delete. Or I'm happy to discuss appropriate edits, if need be ;D )

Otherwise, all I've got to say is Cheers! Oh, and Stand By To Repel Boredom! :P

(oh, and x-posted a few places - sorry for overload, if'n you get any)

ATTENTION VISUAL ARTISTS [09 Jul 2009|09:53am]

[ mood | optimistic ]

At this point, a hypothetical question, but, depending on the answer(s) - so, depending on you - soon to not be hypothetical:

(okay, really a series of questions)

1 are you looking for space in which to exhibit your work?

2 how much would you be willing to pay, as a weekly rental rate, for such a space?

3 would you maybe just like to clear an overflow of old pieces from your home/studio, and could use some extra storage space?

4 if yes to 3, how much could you afford for said storage space?

5 what kind of work is it? What media? More than one?

6 is the work difficult to categorise? Hard to pin down a pigeonhole for? (if so, so much the better ;) )

7 how much space do you feel you could fill, on a weekly, daily, or even hourly basis?

8 does, for instance, roughly 2.3 sqm sound like a fair standard space? (keep in mind that size applies to both wall and floor space, and that the dimensions are fairly fixed.)

9 and does, then, $10 - $20 sound like a reasonable weekly rate for such a standard space? What sort of deposit would you be willing to pay to secure a space?

10 would you rather pay a commission, to an established 'reputable' gallery, or a reasonable rental fee to an emerging venue, after which all income from the sale of your work is entirely yours?

11 would you be interested in displaying work in an artist-run initiative that gives you, financially and aesthetically, as much guidance or autonomy as you require? As you request?

12 how important is a gallery's location to you? Does it HAVE to be in the city or Valley to be taken seriously? What matters most about where and how a gallery is to be found?

13 what sort of demographic (sorry, I don't like that word much either) is your work most likely to appeal to? Who's it, if anyone, 'aimed' at?

14 lastly - how close to ready do you feel you are to exhibiting? Got work ready to go? Keen to discuss rates and deposits?

Know anyone else that's likely to be interested? If so, please, pass this message along!

Responses to all questions can be made either via direct comment, or by email to hermes.kemp@gmail.com - please include the phrase


in the subject line of all related emails.

Thank you!


(X-Posted several places, in the interest of developing new local business ;) )

Hi there,
I just recently joined this community hoping that you can answer my question. I also apologize if this has been asked before.

I'm quite new to sound recording. And I am having trouble getting the static out of my recording via microphone and computer.

What is the most "professional" way of recording music for a home based studio? I'd like to get some nice recordings of the music I make but am frustrated by the static and noise.

Thanks in advance.
