'The Way Home' by Christine Turner,
150cm x 150cm
The 'Breathing Space 2' exhibition in Brisbane is finally over and has been quite successful in many ways. We had good sales and very positive responses to the show. I have attached a few photos below.
I would really like to thank Keith and Trevor for the work they did setting up and later dismantling the exhibition. They were brilliant!! Their enthusiasm and willingness to get the job done was truly wonderful. No task was ever too hard!
I think I speak for all of us in saying that this exhibition reached a standard that we can be quite proud of.
One of my favourite works in this show was Keith Stewart's award winning photograph, 'Gum Trees-Study 1, Tasmania'.
This is black and white in all it's glory, capturing the essence of the landscape.
The glass cabinet, above was just perfect for displaying Trevor Spohr's beautiful ceramic bowls along with John Olsen's curious 'Infernal Axis'
Four little gems by Susan Hutton

Below, Jennifer McDuff's gouache 'drawings' on brown paper bags captivated many.

Beautiful metallic glazed ceramic towers by Trevor Spohr. These were
snapped up very quickly to add to an important collection.
I arrived home very tired as I spent a good while speaking to realestate agents and viewing properties to see what the market is like in Brisbane at present. I hope to sell my home here in Bundaberg soon and find a home in Brisbane. It seems that it is a sellers market to me and houses close to Brisbane's CBD are selling rapidly.
