The women, both regular exhibitors at Joondalup’s blend(er) gallery, have a pop-up show, By Chance, at the WA Museum Albany from July 21 to August 2.

Graham, who spends her time between Two Rocks and Cervantes, will show still life black and white photographs, collages and an abstract oil painting.

Carine resident Hamilton is contributing naturally dyed silk scarves, prints, textile pieces, and handmade books, some containing pressed flowers and quotes.

‘Really all art is quite by chance,’ Graham said.

‘It depends on how you put paint on the brush and where the brush goes.

‘You do not always end up with exactly what you planned.’

The women look forward to gauging audience reaction to their non-representational work from Albany’s ‘forward thinking’ art community.

Meanwhile, Graham and Joondalup artist Alex Maciver are part of the Receive/Respond project with 18 fellow artists from Melbourne and Queensland, with 40 art pieces to form an exhibition in Cairns in October.

Graham also plans a visit to India, where she hopes to meet Australian photographer Robyn Beeche to write about her life.

‘She has become well known over the past two decades for her exceptionally creative photographs of Indian ceremonies,’ Graham said.
