15 minutes of superstar

…48 hours later my feet have just found the floor. The opening was so much fun. Of course, I was nervous for days and days beforehand, putting the last little details together about 45 minutes before the show was going to open and trying to be quick so that the early birds wouldn’t notice. 8)

The Rhino Room is a pretty funky gallery space, ne?

So many lovely people came to see the show and be supportive. You know who you are! Thank you so much! :bunny:

I was all over warm and fuzzy for the entire evening; with a brief period of being a delicate shade of beetroot after Mark Kimber gave the opening speech.

Mark was very generous in his praise. I think we are both excited about the Mentorship program. I know I am.

Dear Delana and Brian were coerced into serving drinks for the evening. Somehow Brian managed to take photographs too. He’s a champ. Delana was effervescenly fabulous, with just a little help from the rosé.

Thank you very very much Kym Pilkington of Wirra Wirra Vineyards and Nigel Thomas of Decant Wines for your tasty support.

Here’s a cute fun thing – a day before we hung the show I found a lovely review of my work online – Adelaide Citysearch has given my show a plug on their website. Thank you very much Lynda Allen for that beautiful press release, I can only imagine that’s how Master Andrew P. Street formed such a good opinion before the pictures were on the wall.

The day after the openingurban love story was included in the SALA East End walking tour. The turnout for the tour was great and I was asked lots of lovely questions. There’s been such an overwhelmingly positive response so far, I must be glowing.

  1. Woohoo! Congrats on the great opening! I knew it would be great fun! the exibit itself looks all “black lodge”y! and how could that NOT be fun!? this paticular skellybones can’t wait to see one of your shows in person!

  2. Congrats, and thanks for posting so many images. It’s not the same as getting to be there, but close.

    I am really happy for you kiddoe, good job.


  3. Thank you very much 🙂
    It’s so lovely to have both of your support even from so far away. I’m very happy that you two are so interested in what I’m up to down here. It certainly makes me feel that even though we are geographically distant our friendships are still as strong as ever. /cheese
    Jamie – by the way, I really don’t want to add the puking smilie to the smilies list. Will this duck do instead? He has fish.

  4. What does too much lurkers mean? And yes I do think pictures am free.

    Despite the ability to give props or “what-what” from a far I miss the small smile given when making the pint glasses go “chink”. I suppose there will be a time and a place for that to happen again, but I miss it.

  5. I have the puking smiley all to myself, so I suppose I should be happy with that! duck with fishies…could the duck MAYBE have eyes that are different colors? that would be CRAZY! but if not…well the duck will still do…

    maybe its better peeps lurk? and pounce with surgical percission when you aren’t expecting it.
    at any rate…”I’d buy that for a dollar”
