…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 rosÃ©.
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.
