What is happening at the Park


     
                  In place and playful the Crows need just a little paint and they will be finished.





It has been hectic at the Park over the last few weeks.  An opening, general organisation, welcoming new staff and fare-welling old. On that subject, more anon.

The opening was great. Robyne Berling's art was as beautiful as always, pleasing to the eye and joyful to the soul. The artist's talk by Peter Cannon was fabulous and gave us all a chance to discuss his approach and ideas. Peter's works were not easy to view, though some contained 'light' and maybe comic comments in a dark world. It wasn't a one way discussion either as he put this blogger on the spot to further define the question asked.. Phew..

The show is there for a few more weeks. If you like beauty and having your own ideas challenged, this is the show to see.

Kerry in Sculpture in the Garden.



Sculptures in the Garden at Mudgee is one of the largest outdoor sculpture events in rural N.S.W. and was held on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October. Over 50 artists were involved as was Kerry with his amusing piece, ‘Mrs. Wright and her cat’.




It seems Mrs. Wright was a real person who was perceived by all as a rather dour woman until she showed you her cat.  She was amazingly proud of her cat and would elongate it to show its beauty. The cat, as can be seen in Kerry’s bronze portrait of the pair, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Mrs. Wright’s feelings are open to your interpretation.  Everyone who passed by the piece was taken by it and its history and was amused by the insider information given when Kerry was interviewed. 

Kay and Gerald Norton-Knight, their family and the many supporters who gave of their time and skills are to be applauded for their incredible organization and the artists for displaying their considerable talent.
