What a day! We met at the Baptist Hinterland Church, so that we could all go together in a 12 person minibus. And what a pleasant drive, the weather was great and traffic much better than expected.
Our first stop was at the Lethbridge Gallery which showed the acrylic work of Scott McDougall.
Next stop GOMA, although quite disappointing, as we hadn’t enough time to see anything significant, we have had a relaxing lunch at the GOMA’s coffee shop, enjoying each others companies and city views on the river.
We then had our last stop at the Art Shed to enjoy a free 2 hour demonstration with Lyn Diefenbach. Lyn shared her knowledge while painting an Australian native scene in oil. It is always amazing to watch professional artists at work, that alone would have been worth going.
Here are just a few points interesting points we have learned today:
If you remember any more interesting facts we have heard or seen, I would love to hear from you, so that I can add it to the list.
