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.
Before the Sketching-DAC:CAC program set in we managed to catch the tail end of Baseline: Remnant Grasslands of Weereewa/Lake George (featuring the work of Beth Hatton and Christine James) and weaving in and out of time (Caroline Huf).
Omigod, what a gorgeous exhibition!!

Beth Hatton’s woven pieces, in particular, were just incredible – and so evocative of the post-colonial ecology of the topographically mysterious Lake George. Apparently the field trip (which headlined the public program component of the exhibition) was really something – one of those ‘stand-out heppenings’ you forever kick yourself for not attending. Bummer.
And Caroline Huff’s work in Gallery 2 was wunderbar too – though, of course, on an entirely different tack altogether…
Treat yourself to more visuals here.
