It is so hard to believe that "Nested" opens on Thursday 13th (I think that's four more sleeps) at the Art Factory Gallery, South Brisbane. Ankie, Sue and I have agreed that all proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service who airlifted some very precious parents to Adelaide from Ceduna, South Australia as they made their way home to Brisbane from Western Australia. An unforgettable trip as it turned out. Quite an unforgettable 50th birthday for me, too. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and wishes over the last fortnight - they have been greatly appreciated by the entire family. Sue's ceramic hand-pinched clam shells are exquisite, as are Ankie's textile nests. My favourite piece, The Wedding Nest, by Sue has to be seen in the cloth. Everyone is welcome to attend the opening of "Nested" on Thursday night from 6pm. The Gallery hours will be Saturday 15th, Sunday 16th and Wednesday 18th from 10am - 4pm. Other times by arrangement. Hope to be able to catch up with some of you there.
