Hope springs eternal

Lately we’ve been storing the work for my solo show, Backstories, in our small library to keep it safe from the ever-curious Alice. This morning, as Shane and I packed up the work ready for delivery to Stephen McLaughlan Gallery, we forgot to close the library door until it was too late. 

With lockdown extended by a further seven days from today, Stephen suggested we courier the work to the gallery, because under current restrictions, we can’t deliver it ourselves. Thanks to Pack and Send in Wendouree, the work will arrive in Melbourne tomorrow. Stephen’s idea is to go ahead and hang the show, so whenever things open up again, we’ll be ready!

Failing another extension of lockdown, we’re still in with a chance, and all going well, there will be some kind of celebration, even if it’s not technically an opening.

Once again, thank you all so much for your supportive messages. Stay safe, everyone.
