Exhibition Travels to Wallsend District Library
My exhibition has now travelled up to the Wallsend District Gallery. It will be here from 15th September to 25th October. We have made a second trip up to meet with Carol Edmonds who runs the programs in the library to fix a date for our joint author talks and to view the exhibition. The We have fixed the date for Wednesday, October 22nd at 5.30 pm. We are hoping to engage with Council planners and place makers as well as the University students next door.gallery space in this building is great and we are excited to see it and to plan for our author talk here.
As we were in Newcastle, we met with an old friend of mine Kelly Mulhearn, who I had worked with more than 12 years ago, at Fairfield City Council. We caught up for morning tea with her and two of her three children at their home. It was great to reminisce about old times and hear her story and share ours.
We had lunch downtown in a nice café with a great vibe. We walked around the downtown area and discovered that vacant spaces were also being used for pop ups by the Council here. There was also a fair bit of street art around and we walked around enjoying the glorious sunshine on a wonderful spring day. We head back, stopping for a cup of afternoon tea at Toronto, another lovely laid back Australian town on the East Coast.
