Cocktails tonight, and Giddy City ditty next week...

Tonight is the cocktail party opening of the Lindfield Art Festival, then next weekend my exhibition, City ditty, will open on Saturday afternoon at The Mercure Sydney Potts Point. Lots to get dressed up for! Not to mention our choir singing in (the foyer of) the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday March 19th! Glad rags everywhere!

I’ll pop the newsletter here so you can find all of the information. I’m looking forward to Gemma’s talk at 4:30 Sunday afternoon…look at the end of the newsletter to see what she’s done.

We'd love you to join us at the opening of "City ditty" on 23 March 5 - 7 pm at Gallery Mercure

"Balingup" hills will be auctioned at the Friday night cocktail party, proceeds going to St Judes' College in Tanzania.

It's quite a story ...

"Holy Family has proudly supported St Jude’s College in Tanzania for several years, sponsoring a teacher and two students. St Jude’s school provides a chance for the brightest and poorest children to escape the trap of inadequate education, illiteracy and poverty. Gemma Sisia, a girl from country NSW, established the school in 2002, which has grown from three students to more than 1500."


I think Gemma will be giving a talk at the show on Sunday. I'll be finding out on Friday evening what time so let me know if you'd like to know too!


Inspiring!


Thank you for letting me share paintings and adventures with you.
Cheers for now,

Kerry
