Baseline Artist Camp…

1 11 2010

Despite forecasts of threatening rain, the BVRG Artist Camp at Penders was spared the brunt of the weather and, while remaining overcast for the duration, we only suffered one drizzly afternoon. Of course, the advantage of holding such an event at Penders is the shelter afforded by The Barn. Lovely and cosy it was, with no apparent dampening of the spirits…

Participants spent two days being mentored by visiting artists Beth Hatton and Christine James (the featured artists in the BVRG’s current exhibition Baseline: remnant grasslands of Weereewa/Lake George)…

Heartfelt thanks to Marr Grounds who so generously allows us use of the site, and to Clare and Keith Aliendi who were largely responsible for the extreme comfort factor.

On at the BVRG…

Megsie’s been hanging out for this one. What a fabulous exhibition. You’ve missed the opening (last Friday) but there’s lots more action to come, including the Artists Soiree and the Artist Camp at Penders later in the month. Beth and Christine will be down for all that.

Meanwhile, the opening was lovely, didn’t take a swag of snaps because we were too busy yakking. But we did manage to capture local artist Beverly Filmer (3rd from right) surrounded by her proud family…

and the odd other…

We’ll take some decent images of the show as soon as we have time.
