A celebration and a conclusion.

It’s the morning after the morning after.

I’m sitting in the Australia Cafe in Inverell having lunch. I’ve just left the exhibition in the capable hands of Jo and the volunteers at the Inverell Art for the next month. I don’t quite know how to describe the weekend I’ve just had. It was enormous. The opening was SOOOOO much fun and I want to thank everyone who came for the night. There were 120 people there, and I don’t know about everyone else but I had a GREAT time. In another post I’ll thank all the people who made this weekend possible – not the least the hanging committee and the people who were there on the ground this few days, but for now I just want to share how very grateful I am, and how honoured I feel for having had this opportunity.

The space looks wonderful and it’s exactly how I hoped the exhibition would look. It’s been more than two years since I started the prep for this exhibition – it’s been in the pipeline for a few years before that – and a twinkle in my eye for twenty. This weekend was a celebration and and conclusion.
Thankyou one and all for being on this journey with me.
