OUR WORLD - Pictures at an Exhibition

Yesterday's treat was an exhibition opening
in Tanunda, the capital of the wine growing region
of The Barossa.

a rather wonderful mix of installations
ecologically and environmentally sustainable
contact prints on everything from bone, through fabrics
to paper and writing on the wall

the catalogues ran out and my memory is a trifle iffy
but I think?? the above was part of a long row of
fabric . . . however, I could be mistaken

a detail

an installation of a most glorious dress in autumnal tones
with many, many small pictures on paper in mixed medium
drawn upon and dyed

detail on fabric

installation of rusted shearer's combs

An exhibition of 'Back Country' by India Flint
I found it impressive even if I am a tad biased 
being the artist's mother.

Photography is not the best but the best i could
hurriedly do in a crush of people
also, there was so much more than I was able to capture.

Tomorrow I'm off on a long journey, 
don't know when or if I shall ever be back.

Please leave a comment or two,
I do appreciate them so very much.

  1. The exhibition looks inspired and inspirational. And of course you are proud. How could you not be?
    This long journey of yours? Physical or metaphorical? Travel safely, and come back if you possibly can. You are important to so many of us.

    1. Both my dear. Off to Sydney for a concert but my ticker tells me it could go off with a bang anytime.
      All in God's hands

  2. wonderful exhibition, safe travels.

  3. I wish I could see that exhibition 'in the flesh'. It speaks fluently of the landscape. At first glance I thought that gown was an old tree stump!
    Have a safe and enjoyable journey.

      I wish you could have been there as well, we could have had a few glasses of superior wine and enjoyed these and the rest of the exhibits together
