Tap Gallery Leslie Dimmick’s ‘Drive’ Exhibition Opening, and 65th Birthday Party 14th April 2018 was a really lovely night full of really interesting people. I don’t think there was one person there that wasn’t interesting. So many artists in the one gallery! Leslie’s ‘Drive’ Exhibition works were beautiful, bold, and some quite industrial and technical. These works showed space at a distance taking you into the picture and feeling like you were being there yourself.
Mary Pace ‘ Hanging Out ‘ Exhibition Opening on 31st March 2018
Exhibition finishes- 7th April 2018 At the Sheffer Gallery, Lander Street Darlington NSW
Here are some fanciful images of the Opening. It was a really lovely Opening with good wine and art chat! Lots of it, and its really great to meet such talented artists around the art traps! Mary is fun and lively, smart and keen eyed! Many wonderful life stories to tell. 🙂 Thoroughly enjoyable.
Some galleries are really fine, and the area is so large that one can peruse the art works singularly and really absorb the image. Other galleries are makeshift, and the works are bunched up together like a shop store with racks of lollies and foodstuffs to grab on your way out. This was one such exhibition, unfortunately. I was quite unimpressed really, though I could see that the volunteers were ardent in trying to make it the best possible exhibition space possible. With cramped space, and a very small room, they had recently acquired ‘set up ‘walls’ to hang as many works for sale on .

to the more colourful and fanciful presentations.
