Holding an exhibition can be a bit nerve wracking. How will the hanging go? Will anyone show up for the opening? What will people think of it? What will I think of it?

All these thought were going through my mind while driving to Adelaide for the launch, on the 31st of July, of  ‘THIS IS OUR TOWN’ at the Playford Civic Centre.

I needn’t have worried. All went very well with a great turnout and lots of positive feedback. It was particularly pleasing to see the local Elizabethans engage with the photographs.

I even did some radio (with Sonya Feldhoff on the ABC and Andrew Bunney on 3D Radio) which was most enjoyable, and, also got some press.

I gave an artist talk on the following Saturday which was also well attended. It was good to see some old faces!


Blah, blah!


There’s that photo again …

An overall view of the exhibition

All in all, a most satisfying experience. Now for the book!

The exhibition will remain open until August the 24th at the Playford Civic Centre, 10 Playford Boulevard, Elizabeth
