Closing Drinks, Gallery 101 Melbourne

On Friday, 5 March, Gallery 101 held its final celebration after nearly 20 years of being a vital part of Melbourne's cultural life. Director Dianna Gold, Gallery Manager Martina Copley and Gallery Assistant and Media Liaison Officer Cate Massola were all a pleasure to work with, and I hope our paths will cross again one day. Many artists whose work I admire enormously, including Judy Holding, Heather Shimmen, Tim Gresham, Christopher Heathcote, Deborah Walker, and Angela Cavalieri, were exhibiting artists at Gallery 101. A number of us are also old friends, which added very much to the feeling of being part of a family. The Gallery will close its doors on March 13.
