We had spent Thursday hanging...
|Jennifer, the Gallery owner, adjusting levels.|
|A wall of my work.|
It was gratifying to see so many supporters and people interested in art as the gallery is a little out of the way for many people.
|Wyn and Noela|
Wyn Vogel and Noela Mills are fellow bloggers and each very creative indeed (click on the links to see their work). They are standing in front of some of Gaynor's work.
The exhibition was opened by Julie Hauritz, Education and Public Programmes Officer for the Noosa Regional Gallery, who made a very encouraging and pertinent speech about the role of art in the community.
|Gaynor, Me, Julie, and Jennifer|
The speeches were in front of Janet's paintings... wonderful, expressive, large works. Unfortunately Janet was unable to attend after having too good a time overseas, and arriving back the day before completely debilitated with one of those treacherous 'travel' bugs. I know she'll read this and hope she shakes it off soon.
|Me & Julie|
The evening wore on and I sold another painting to a very supportive friend and fellow painter Susanne Barrett but we couldn't party all night (tho' some would've liked to).
|Barry, Kim, and Julie|
Barry, and Kim, also fellow bloggers, had travelled quite a way to attend and didn't seem to be in any hurry to leave.
I'd like to say thanks to all who came, and those who intend to visit the exhibition when they can fit it into their schedule. I count it a great success.
