Thank you so very much to everyone who came to the opening night of PRINTS 1987 - 2016 at Tacit Contemporary Art, including those who travelled long distances in less than perfect weather! It was a wonderful turnout and the presence of so many friends, both old and new, made my evening complete.
Huge thanks also to curator TJ Bateson and Keith Lawrence, director of Tacit Contemporary Art, for making this show possible.
For those who couldn't make it, and don't live in another state, territory or country, all is not lost. The exhibition continues until 2 October. Full details are in my previous post.
