All works sold;
We opened on Thursday night in the Wellington rain, but the devoted still came out. Thanks to Caryl McKirdy at ROAR for a humming evening; not without Connah and Fraser’s help. Also to the fine and generous artists of Pablos for being wonderful hosts keeping everyone refreshed. I had the chance to meet new people and re-connect with friends. I was honoured to meet artist and academic Stuart Shepherd – a champion of Outsider (or Contemporary Folk) art in NZ. A special thanks also to Louise Upston (MP Taupo) for making the time to come down the hill. It was a wonderful and memorable night, and I know it sparked a whole new set of future directions and connections.
