Great opening of the ‘Living Gondwana: A Sense of Place’ exhibition last night at the Old Buttery Factory Studios in Denmark. Joey Williams gave a welcome to country and explained the story behind the large canvas that many were involved in painting. Jessie Gloede read some beautiful poetry inspired by Balijup farm and Marie Limondin accompanied the reading on violin. Then we watched the short film created by Craig Carter ‘Balijup Farm: A Jewel in Gondwana Link’. Will be on YouTube soon.
Was a pleasure to finally meet one of the members of the family that own Balijup – Alan Hordacre. The family are extremely generous in letting people visit their farm and are very supportive of conservation management work.
Exhibition was full of great artworks – prints, sculptures, paintings, fabrics. Well done to everyone and special thank yous to the ever innovative and energetic Nikki Green and Basil Schur
