art art and more art...


Friday night was the opening for St Ignatius Art show at Norwood.. this is the first year I've been invited to participate and what a cool night.. I bumped into Judith Rolevink who has 2 bronzes in the show, wandered around checking out the amazing pieces in this show and wow some brilliant art..



On entry we got a goodie bag complete with programme and a voucher for wine, very spec :))
And a brass band made up of the senior school kids nothing like a bit of jazz at an opening...this one ticked all the boxes for me.. amazing munchies, wine, great lighting and the work was set out so well..yey team!!

I met some amazing artists who generously talked about their work, there's a gorgeous painting in the silent auction, which apparently went for 7K last year!!

The 'outdoor room' was a flutter of red dots when I left and quite a queue of peeps at the sales desk waiting to buy some amazing art. Anyhoo enjoy the vid it's just a sample of what's on display..

The show continues through the wkd with a string section playing and cupcakes. It's gold coin entry for the wkd and friday night was ticket only entry. It's a brilliant show, so if you're in town get and see it and buy some original art..
