Down by the Murrumbidgee River ....

A true 'artist date' with yourself.
By the Murrumbidgee today near Narrandera, these lovely works are waiting for the crowds to come.
The river provides a sense of the scale and
grace of these works.

The light was filtered through the clouds but there was a strong shadowing that lent intensity and drama to the setting.

What's not to love here? My congratulations and thanks to everyone involved.

Do yourself a favour people, and look this up.
Promise yourself to spend more time viewing such events.

A wonderful art event

This morning I drove the half hour to Narrandera Common to experience the delightful site specific works that were produced for On Common Ground. The link  CADFACTORY.COM.AU will give you more information.
A sparkling spring morning and the unobtrusive river could only enhance the positive effect of time spent with these people and their work.
An informative guided tour and introductions by my friend of many years, conceptual (and other creative disciplines) artist Natalie, enabled me to indulge my passion for talking about the dyes, textiles and patterns on display.
Several weeks ago, Natalie had invited me to observe the work of a group of women at Narrandera Railway Station who were dying, stitching and assembling a range of materials for the exhibition.
