This is a celebratory post. I had the most awesome weekend with my family and friends. I spent Saturday wandering through art galleries in Bris with my Dad. So, SO lucky to have someone so open to art, he is so glad and eager to talk and actually LOOK at art with me! Its very hard to find an open soul, who is happy to engage in art without excusing themselves from what they are looking at. Contemporary art is often confronting, but to be able to share and encourage the 'art' knowledge of a parent is such a great, great experience for me. Plus - its the only time I get my Dad all to myself. What a joy!
We traipsed through a couple of galleries in the Valley (a kind of cultural hub in Brisbane - for my overseas readers) and then went to Milani Gallery in search of some works for purchase by the beautiful vernon-ah-kee....
We ended up, happily, sharing what we liked and disliked along the way... and then there was food and drinks, and my friends and how great it is to spend time laughing and crying with those I love and adore. I'm a lucky girl.
