Exhibitions 2016 & 2017 - Andrew has exhibited solo as part of the Greenwich Village Arts Trail and his last year pop up gallery had more than 650 visitors over the first weekend in November. It is a great opportunity to display and sell work that is purely creative - some of the signature prints are also on show at the Oswald & Barcom Gallery throughout the year.
One of Andrews first solo exhibitions was "Images of Australian Rural Woman" which was launched from the ABC Radio at Ultimo and traveled throughout Australia - this three year series covered the lives of Australian Rural Women from every state of Australia. Sponsored by QANTAS, NSW Arts Council and ABC Radio. Andrew also had a solo exhibition launching a Men of League calendar featuring sixteen leading Rugby League players – more than 20,000 calendars were sold.
Nothing is quite a nice as dropping into an exhibition with prints hanging on the walls however Social Media & Online is the simplest forum for exhibitions so naturally I also have a bunch of time consuming instagram accounts including Tenbuckalley Outbackjunkie Photonautical Oswaldbarcom CrossfirePhotographyAustralia and the TENBUCKALLEY you tube channel.
Editorial work has been produced for a range of publications including ACP's Money Magazine, Momentum, Various Newspaper Magazines, Modern Boating, Power Boat, NZ Sea Spray, Pacific Motor-Yachting, Ocean Magazine, Personal Investor, Shares House & Garden and Vogue Living and many more.
