Patron’s Day…

2 12 2010

The Gang braved the wet and galloped up the Darragh and across the Monaro for one of our fave highlights of the year, the EASS/Patron’s Day at the ANU School of Art; preview to the annual Graduate Show (this coming Friday night.) It’s always a visual treat, and the perfect opportunity to catch up with lots of our fave peeps.

We scored the bonus of a coupla hours with Babsie as ‘guide’ – quality time if ever there was!

Mugshots that made it through the editing suite here. Managed to leave the catalogue in Pa’s car, so apologies for lack of student/title/workshop data – we’ll do a retro drop-in as soon as it’s to hand.
