On the weekend we held an Art Exhibition. The week before we drew up an invitation and delivered it to the special recipients. The night before the Exhibition we delved into the depth of "the bottom" draw where many a prized artworks are lovingly stored. We sorted and with a critical eye selected only the best. Each piece was named by said artists, an accompanying description sometimes added and the decision to "sell" selected works was borne. The curators job was to delicately display the artwork, turning what was affectionally known as the spare room into The Gallery.
Once the artwork was in place, the door was closed until the official opening of 3pm. The invitees arrived having to pay a small admission fee to cover expenses such as blue-tak and washi tape and were given a special brochure detailing some background history about each artist. They then perused The Gallery, admiring the exhibited works, discussing and listening to the Artists describe each peice.
Delighted Artists were busy writing out receipts as a flurry of purchases were made and artwork bundled up and taken to a new destination.
Such a fun was had by all, and such a magical way to display children's artwork and to allow extended family to marvel at their accomplishments.
