Lots of people came along to the exhibition opening and I had many very positive comments about my artwork, as well as some sales.
Many of the people at the exhibition understood the vegetation around Bendigo and could relate to the story and appreciate the subtleties expressed in the upright fibre and felt sculptures.
Petrus Spronk did a fantastic job of opening the show with a wonderful story and it was enjoyed by everyone.
It is great to have a solo exhibition at the LaTrobe Visual Art Centre in Bendigo, located opposite the Bendigo Regional Gallery inView Street. And it was wonderful working with Paul and Gail to bring the show together, and work with Petrus setting the show out.
I also need to thank Pamela and Wes at Mandurang Valley Winery, for supporting the exhibition with their excellent selection of wine.
Here are a few photographs from the opening night.
