Two exhibitions

Yesterday we put up the Winter Delights for the Alcove, at the Box Hill Community Arts Centre. There was so much work, it took us hours. But I think we did a good job and it looks great.

The opening was last night. We had a good attendance and it was great to meet so many of the makers. We hear about each other, read each others' names on the rosters but rarely get to meet. So it is a lovely social event as well as a pleasure to see all the works.
The works are all for sale, so some things disappeared almost before they had a chance to be seen. Luckily, as I helped to set it up, I had seen most of it.

I also belong to an online tapestry group that has a yearly challenge that is collated and sent around the country and to New Zealand. It is our turn to have them all. I had other commitments on Saturday but other members of the group set it up in the gallery at the Handweavers and Spinners guild. I was sent some pics of the workers but now I have to make the effort and go and see them myself. It is always so much better to see tapestries (and other art) 'in the flesh'.
