It was so much...

...fun that I'd like to do it all over again!

The opening of  'Students. Teacher. Play.',,,
last week at Centre 64 was wonderful.  With a host of attendees, dozens of mixed media artworks, a dozen artists and incredible refreshments, how could it have been anything else?

At the entrance - that stunning painting on the right is 'Alice in Wonderland' by Alice Saltiel

Here's Lynne Mizera with her Graffiti Roses

Judy Walker (l) and Gerry Forget (r), two of the artists

Alice Saltiel with her Alice in Wonderland

Judy Dahl with her Shifting Sands

Laura Leeder with her lovely stylized florals

Some of my work in the upstairs gallery

I'm toasting the opening (and the guests) in front of Midnight Garden V (yup - I think it's the last Midnight Garden - maybe)  Photo by Judy Dahl
Doesn't this spread look amazing?  The volunteers at Centre 64 did a terrific job.  Between this, the wine and the punch, there was nothing lacking at all!

The appies were amazing - photo by Alice Saltiel

Thanks to those of you who made a trip (short or long) to attend - it would be hard to express how much it was appreciated.  If you've not yet seen the show, it's open until September 24 - well worth the look!

NB.  All uncredited photos by John Dinn, unless I've really goofed up on my notes!
