It was a really great afternoon spent exploring the "rainforest" and catching up with some good friends and fellow artists. Among the traders on the day were North Coast artists Annique Goldenberg and Heather Matthew. Their enthusiasm for the concept was heartening and their swapped artworks make a great addition to the Trading Place collection. A big Thank you to everyone who came along and supported us at the opening.
Thursdays are 'trading days' and there has been another three so far since the opening. We have had a really great response and have some awesome pieces added to the ever growing Trading Place Collection. It is always a surprise to see who is going to come in and what they are going to bring with them to trade. In the last couple of trading weeks we met up with some old artists friends and made some new ones. Among the traders were Metal Sculptor Daniel Clemmett, Ceramic artists Fiona Fell, Liz Stops and Sonia & Paul Osborn, Painter Kate Hallen, Gallery Director Brett Adlington and his son Hugo, and Sandy Darab.
There are now only three trading days left in the exhibition. they are Thursday October 8, 15 and 22. If you want to participate make sure you come along to the Lismore Regional Gallery on one of those days between 11.30 and 12.30.
It's going to be interesting to see how the exhibition looks at the end of trade on October 22 - the exhibition itself will still be exhibited until October 24, so you can still go along and take a look. Here's a photo of the trading cabinet as it looks halfway through....
See you there!
