Blarney Biblio-Art Exhibition and images/stories from Port Fairy

I’ve just returned from a delightful weekend with friends in the little seaside town of Port Fairy at the end of the Great Ocean Road.

The Blarney Biblio-Art Exhibition was an absolute highlight – and not just because I got to see my sculptural piece hung on display but because of the inspirational and wide-ranging work on show. But as promised, here are some pictures of my work:

It was just fantastic to see complete strangers engaging with my work:

And I was so thrilled to receive a special mention in the short-list for the People’s Choice award :-)

But the fun did not end there – Sunday brought a feast of delights (with a selection of images captured below):

  • Wanders along the Moyne River and around Griffiths Island with its lighthouse, wallabies and other adventures.
  • Witnessing the festivities of the annual Dachshund Dash.
  • Admiring the Port Fairy streetscape and a little window shopping.
  • Attending the Women in Song performance featuring local women performing their own and others music – so uplifting and sheer fabulousness. We were particularly touched by a piece of music performed by the organiser who hadn’t performed in public before and shared a piece she had written for her mother. A really magical afternoon.
  • Stumbling upon great art exhibits all over town including a giant squid sculpture in the main street.
  • And so much more…
