I’ve taken two days leave for the launch of Connections. The lead-up has been hectic organising publicity, getting the catalogues and other material printed and making sure all the other bits and pieces were coming together.
I’ve spoken to the Bush Telegraph, the Hornsby Advocate and the Chronicle in Pennant Hills and links to these reviews are on my website connec2nil. My partner Steven who has been in Copenhagen for 2 weeks, flies in first thing on Thursday morning and my day starts with a trip to the airport. After a quick shower and a bite to eat we drive to the library to set up. The process of hanging the photos and text is harder than we imagine but after two days of running around we are almost ready for the launch.
In addition to the photos we have a table with flyers, business cards, evaluation sheets, reviews, guest sign-in and my printed blogs for people to browse through. A few chairs are scattered around the room but this will be a stand up event. A sandwich board with a colourful poster at the entrance heralds the exhibition.
My friend Anita is busy setting up in the kitchen and by 6pm we are ready for our first visitors who start arriving shortly after.
