They are such givers and make up an amazing Artist Run Initiative and grass roots community venture.
I feel very privileged to have the terrific support, hours put in and team work of all the Members past and present (and their partners too) at Tablelands Artists Cooperative Gallery (t.arts Gallery), Bathurst. They volunteer so much time and expertise. Together they make plinths and walls (yes there is a new gallery dividing wall!!!!!! – special thanks Greg and Pete), create graphic design and organise labels, media, printing, invites and all the behind the scenes administration, assist in hanging the shows, sit in the gallery and just be terrific people. And then they all bring food on the night too and repeat it all for the next show and the one after!
Thanks Claire, Emanda, Gary, Geoffrey, Gordon, Graham, Greg, Heather, Janine, John, Judy, Katrina, Louise, Margaret, Mark, Merilyn, Mike, Nancy, Nicole, Pete and Richard.
Also a huge thanks to Kerry and Ben of Pigments and Pallets, Bathurst (for all their help in the lead up to this exhibition and my last and all the in between too), Wal of Bathurst Australiana Framing and Micah at Southern Buoy – they have all gone above and beyond.
And because of all of their doings, my STILL exhibition is up and almost ready for the opening this Friday 24 Feb at 6pm. Only a couple of more sleeps and a hive of activity between. You are welcome to come …
