Blume Illustration

 Come celebrate the launch of an exciting new magazine that showcases illustrators, writers, artists and designers from the Blue Mountains!

You are invited to drinks and canapes to launch the inaugural issue of Blume Illustrated Magazine Issue#1 in the newly decorated ballroom of the historic Carrington Hotel, Katoomba. 


Thu. 30 March 2017

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Blume Illustrated will distribute an edition of 5000 free 52 page, full colour magazines produced by Blue Mountains illustrators, writers, artists and designers. Blume Illustrated has a primary vision to shine a bright light on the many creative talents who call the Blue Mountains home and their colleagues from near and far, and to promote the first Blume Illustration Festival to be held in Katoomba in May 2017 (more details on that to come!)

There will also be a small exhibition of archival prints from the portfolio of Blume’s cover story illustrator, Margaret Clark (1901-2001) who spent some of her childhood and retirement in the Blue Mountains.

Margaret’s youngest son, Blue Mountains resident Mark Stanfield and her grand niece, Vivien Wells will be Blume’s special guests, along with Blume sponsors and contributors, to celebrate Margaret’s remarkable talent and the birth of this unique new publication.

Join the party and support the many creative talents who have volunteered their time and talents to bring you the first Blume Illustrated Magazine, hot off the press!
