Fascination Finale

Today, members of Perth Kimono Club visited our art exhibition “Fascination: Maiko, Geiko, Kyoto”.

Outside it was an incredibly stormy day.  Only the bravest of the brave actually wore kimono as a strong bitterly cold wind blew non-stop while horizontal rain teemed.   Inside the gallery we sat and discussed maiko, geiko and Kyoto – interrupted at regular intervals by the front door blowing open.

President of Perth Kimono Club, Izumi Woods, was given the task of randomly selecting the winner of 40 Caran d’Ache Luminance 6901 coloured pencils (held by Robyn Varpins) donated by Kadmium Art + Design Supplies in Sydney.  220 names were in the bag.  Congratulations Di Swain!!!

After a group photo, people chatted and looked at the art.  It was a lovely way to finish off the exhibition.

Matthew (my Better Half) was given the task of photographer.

Tomorrow people will come to take away the sculptures and drawings they bought.  And I will go back to being a person who works quietly at home…at least for another two years.

Thank you to EVERYBODY who took the time to visit our art exhibition over two and a half weeks.  Your interest, encouragement and support are hugely appreciated.

    Wow Julie, what a spectacular event you created for everyone, well done! It must have been so interesting too.

  2. What a lovely way to finish your exhibition Julie, despite the weather, I hope it was successful for you, I did notice a number of red dots in the photos. We are about to get some of the storms coming across from SA & WA this afternoon, so we will be battering down here too. Karen

    Oh how I wish I could have shown up and surprised you! One day I am going to do just that!

  4. Congratulations on such a success! It probably already feels well in the past, but it must be very satisfying to reflect on.
