Saturday saw the art community of WA converge on The Drill Hall at Leeuwin Barracks to deliver their art. What an amazing day.
Artists and friends unveiled their freshly minted pieces from miles of bubble wrap, bags and blankets while your trusty committee checked and receipted the multitude of treasures. It is one of the joys of being a part of the organising team - you get first view!! And believe me, it is all that you hope it to be and more.
Then comes the brain busting conundrum of trying to curate an exhibition in a space whose architect didn't expect it to have this purpose, whose electricians never imagined power to over 400 artworks, in a building that is now listed as heritage, on a budget that is tightly controlled for the community!
But we are nearly there. Your crack team of volunteers, many from the community, not just your committee, have been,
juggling - not the ceramics of course,
hauling - you wait until you see the scale and substance of some of the sculpture work
hanging - more paintings than your arms believe when they're above your head holding someones passion
balancing - special exhibits are amazing and
straightening - we are all a little OCD
Now we need you to join in and share the love.
