A4 Art Australia Exhibition 2023 – March 4th – April 10th weekends & public holidays Herring Island 

Power failures, Internet glitches and delayed postings…

Saturday was the CAS Contemporary by Nature exhibition opened at the Herring Island gallery as part of the Summer Arts Festival. I went a bit early, planning to sit on the stone boat at the corner of the island and draw. Well I had to postpone that as u ended up helping with the opening but it is always fun doing that as you get to chat with other society members. It was a great opening and a lovely day. I will sit the gallery on the 15th and it is such a nice space to be in.

After the opening event, I went for a walk around the island as I love looking at the sculptures and immersing myself in the peace of bushland so close to the center of Melbourne. Of course I went and drew on the stone boat after the opening. Such a lovely space and a beautiful view down the Yarra. A nice way to finish the day.
Today I went to the Bridget McDonnell Gallery in Hampton at Brighton and saw a very traditional exhibition of work by an artists from St Petersburg in the 1950s and 60s? Beautiful pieces that had a real sense of history, time and place.
Then fully inspired I went home to play in the studio…

Sketching and enjoying the view.
