Tread Lightly opening

We had a fine time last night down at the Arts and Ecology Centre for the opening of Tread Lightly. A beautiful setting, some delicious and exquisite creations and a fine group of friends, family and artists in attendance.

The exhibition space where my work was featured included work by a number of other artists, all celebrating paper and the re-purposing of paper and books.

The exhibition is open 10am - 4pm daily until 8 July 2012 at the Arts and Ecology Centre at the Maroochy Regional Bushland Gardens, Tanawha.

  10. Your work looks wonderful Fiona and I am so glad the rust strapped books are front and center. One of my favourites. Congrats.

  11. Thanks Annie - it is a great space; my sorts of pieces don't always work in gallery spaces, but this one really supported them.

    I think it's worth a look Susan - lots of lovely paper-booky bits.

    Hi Kate - it's at Maroochy Bushland Botanical Gardens, up our way...

    Thanks G/TT - I can hardly believe it is happening after all the rest of our life happening as it has recently; but it is nice to be out there again.

    Thanks PPPCA - it's lovely space for this work.

    Thanks Jane - it was a nice night and the opera singers were divine.

    You're welcome Robyn, anytime!

    I think you'll enjoy it Jo - there is also art out in the gardens themselves. All in all al lovely setting for stuff.

    Thank you Carol - I think Rosie's work is amazing, and it would be nice to have had you along! Go well.

    Thanks Liz - the nook works well for me. I know the feeling about the rust strapped books, I actually kept saying all night how much I loved that piece the most!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
