Opening Night Success!

Wow!

I am truly and absolutely blown away by last night, what a great show! I could not be any happier. There was a constant stream of punters through the gallery all night long, each so curious to see the becomings of the box materials. The work was spectacular, so creative, innovative and different. It and the makers received great praise and appreciation from the public. Many a sale were made many a suprise reaction had by all when they discovered the true nature of the materials.

Thank you so much to everyone who made the opening your efforts and support so warmly received. Thank you’s go out to Mel Young, Zara Collins, Sunggee Min, Jessica Page, Diane Appleby, Sondi and Carrie McDowell (who came the furtherest distance across from WA), it was great to see the familiar faces and to also meet those with whom I have been corresponding through-out the year. Those that couldn’t make it thank you for all of your consistent hard work and dedication to the project, It would not have been possible without you. You were there in spirit and i’ll be posting more pics for all to see really really soon.
