The sun shone, the crowds came and everyone had a cultured
time at Ceramic Break’s first opening of 2016.
Two artists, Margie Makim and Marilynne Barnes are exhibiting through May 2016.
Margie Makim’s exhibition included paintings,
installations and performances of song, music and readings from the text. The enthusiastic auction conducted by professional auctioneer Mark Smith added another layer of fun and excitement to the proceedings.

Marilynne Barnes nudes are a delight and her artist talk
gave a special insight into her work. When you visit be sure to look for the one male
nude in her show, 'Bodylines'.
As the long, hot
summer begins to cool, Ceramic Break Sculpture Park is again open to all.
During our quiet time, thanks go to Nerida and Kylie for keeping the Park

multiple messages and cleaning them is a never ending activity.

Mad Dogs and Englishmen who go out in the midday sun, many intrepid visitors
called our Artist in Residence, Margie Makim who paused her own Art work to enthusiastically
open the Park and welcome those who made an appointment for a tour. Margie’s show will be our first exhibition in April.

view of her inner parts that Kerry has been sculpting, heart, liver, kidneys,
bladder and gall bladder to name some of them. It is incredible that we mammals
can fit so many organs into such a compact space.
