Artists in Residence 'James Craig' opening of exhibition 27/4/13

Friday 26th April saw the loading of all the easels and lighting into the hold, and it was a busy day for everyone who came along to help.  Marine Artists are a convivial bunch of people, and although it was a warm day, the new individual spotlights for the easels and associated  electrical puzzles were soon sorted out and the exhibition was set up ready for viewing.

Exhibition SALT IN THE AIR 27 April - 4th May 2013

At last - our exhibition date has been set! 

The paintings will be collected together and displayed 
on the 'tween' deck of the tall ship 'James Craig', opening 27th April 
closing midday 4th May.

We extend you an invitation to come along, 
for the Official Opening by Tanya Plibersek MP at 2 pm on the Saturday 27th April, 
or during the following week before the show closes on the afternoon of Friday 3rd May.
The 'James Craig' is moored alongside Wharf 7 at Pirramar Road, Pyrmont, 
close to the Australian National Maritime Museum.

This is a wonderful opportunity to visit the ship and view the artwork. All work is for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Sydney Heritage Fleet to assist its valuable work in conserving the vessels that tell many stories of Sydney Harbour's past times.

A Confusion of Craft

Tok prepares one of 'Kanangra's window frames for repainting.
In the meantime, we continue to work on the paintings - sorting, checking, framing, listing - and  most importantly - making sure every work is signed!
