Visiting Anne Spudvilas

One of many happy memories from our Art Vault residencies/exhibitions (which officially end today) is the evening Shane and I spent with Anne Spudvilas. Her house is in nearby Wentworth, which is situated at the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers. Chez Spudvilas is a singularly special place. Upon our arrival Anne made martinis, which she served in elegant green art deco glasses. We sipped them by the river’s edge, savoring the taste and the view before going inside to enjoy the fabulous meal Anne had prepared for us.

Anne is a former Art Vault artist in residence, who fell in love with the area - and stayed. Her experiences are documented on her blog Another Year on the River, which you can find on the right of this blog under Favourite Blogs. Alternatively, you can visit it HERE.
