Drop the Dust

Last Friday morning was a real treat - I booked into a 3D hands-on workshop with exhibiting South Australian Artists Pamela Kouwenhoven and Margaret Worth at the Caloundra Regional Gallery.  I feel very fortunate to have had the experience, only a small number of participants attended which made for an intimate setting both Pamela and Margaret made us feel very welcome - it was such a fun morning! 

 If your in the Caloundra area I would highly recommend calling in and seeing the exhibition Drop the Dust a curatorial theme focusing on the pervasiveness of dust in our lives - it is a stunning show of artworks!
