Yungaburra Village Artist Exhibition

Posted by admin on November 3, 2011

Opening night tonight! They are always a bit of a buzz, opening nights. When your artwork is there for all to see, a bit like your heart on your sleeve, it can be a bit stressful. But I've found that people are usually so generous with their compliments (and hopefully checkbooks!), that it makes the hours working solitary in the studio all worthwhile.


6th November... The Yungaburra Village Artists exhibition opening was yet again a great social night. We can certainly draw a crowd, and probably had around 200 people come through the door. However, we didn't sell much, which may be an indication about how people are tightening their belts due to the uncertain economic climate. Unfortunately but understandably, art is a luxury that most people can do without when things are tough. I must say, (and I may be a little biased), the exhibition as a whole looked absolutely fabulous- Tony William's realistic "Gilbert Tucker" painting of 2 indigenous fellows on the banks of the Gilbert river stood out and received many ooohs and ahhs, Bec Honeyman's drypoint prints were also a favourite, and chosen by Ben Truppenbaumer (the opener) as the pick of the exhibition. Ian Waldron (Winner of the Glover prize and finalist of the Archibald), also drew a crowd. I believe the overall standard of the show was very high, and I'm proud be be part of this little group of artists from Yungaburra.
