What a great weekend!
Hundreds (thousands?) of people took advantage of the magical Autumn weather to visit the various venues open for the annual Dardanup Art Spectacular Art Trail.
At Lyndendale Gallery visitors were greeted by artists ‘beavering’ away on the front verandah. Whoops! nearly forgot to mention that the first impression was of the imposing garden structures from Gathering Rust.
And inside, so many new art works for people to look at. of course, the focus was the new Exhibition of fibre art and watercolours from Geraldine and Neville Peterkin. How whimsical and many-layered is the title off this exhibition of mini-masterpieces? ‘TeenyTurners’
Focus artist, Kevan Collett, is focus artist for may and June. what a treat to see his works on the wall.
Equally popular were the artists working inside. At various times we had James Depiazzi signing copies of his book,’The Momentous Ordinary’ (his daughter, Mary, sang to those enjoying the delicious afternoon tea in the courtyard- Thanks, SolarisCare ladies; Val Hornibrook demonstrated felting, Marguerite Aberle painted her delightful miniature cards; Colin Pratt worked his magic with melted wax. Did you know that was what encaustic art was?
Outside musicians from Bunbury Performers’ Club delighted us all.
Put the first weekend in May into your diary! Every year the Art Spectacular and Art Trail are at this time. I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
