Thanks to everyone who went and saw the show, I am extremely humbled by your support Papillon warmly received over two thousand visitors to the gallery.
I would also like to thank Jennifer, Vivienne and Tony for saving all those used tea bags for me! Spilling over from the Expressions of Love's store, I'm so glad I had the foresight to stock pile their tea bags - it took nearly two years to reach the desired amount used in Papillon.
This photo was captured by Tony Bryant, I like the detail in this shot!
...and over two thousand were hung from a net in In Flight. Install team pictured L-R; Simon, Sam, Toni, and Mal.
Opening night drew a modest crowd and was shared amongst family and friends, old and new with guest speaker Dr. Nita C Lester who kept everyone enthralled with her speech. Following photos by Lindsay Ham.
Celebrating the opening with Hamish,
...and (L-R) also exhibiting artist Karen Richards (Flora non Evidens) and Janet de Boer OAM.
The intimacy shared with Uncovered Conversations was a delight, as were the surprise visits from close friends. Following photos by Barry Alsop.
Tech talk with Jennifer - explaining how the images were transferred onto the tea bags.
My dearest (and fiercely independent) friend Petrus, who took advantage of his visit and delivered his cache of used tea bags.
Both installation view, plus in the foreground Petrus having a cup of tea before driving himself home.
Another highlight was facilitating the Adults and Children's Butterfly Making Workshops - actually, there were so many highlights, too many to list in one blog post! More photos can be enjoyed via my website in NEWS and/or EXHIBITIONS
