Living with an artistic family means I get to visit quite a few art exhibitions. Stuart has a new show opening in just a fortnight, so framing is seriously under way. Long ago we even ran an art gallery, where we actually made more income from home-made Devonshire Tea, served in individual ceramic teapots promoting the work of our regular potters. They were funny years of making strawberry jam, baking hundreds of scones in an old oven held closed by a bent coat-hanger, and churning leftover cream into butter on Sunday nights.
Earlier this year our middle son Toby and his wife Fiona, with their friend Brett Martin, had a very successful exhibition called Rock, Paper, Tinsnips. I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the artworks, and the opening night scene.
Moruya has a vibrant art community. There is usually a crowd at exhibition openings, and sales are brisk, unlike big city openings. Perhaps this part of the coast attracts artists from north and south, and discerning Canberra buyers amongst them. Here are some of the guests enjoying the art and the social occasion. Children ran in and out, adding to the melee!
