Yesterday I was very fortunate to attend the opening of a new exhibition at our local art gallery. This exhibition is showing the work of two ladies from our district, their last being four years ago. It was a lovely day in an extraordinary setting, and I was amazed at how their work had changed, especially with regard to the colours they are using now. They both work in mixed media, and are having fun with their artistic journey. A little can be seen about our gallery on this website:
I've taken a photo of one of the huge 'metal' bottletrees that are part of the structure of the building. You should find lots of information about this gallery if you care to visit the above site. This was the 'cultural' part of my day', and the following photos will show the more 'country' side to it.
This is one of our usual 'pedestrians'. As you can see, in absolutely no hurry to get out of my way, and very eager to pose for a photograph. Thankfully, in daylight one can often 'avoid' these fellows, but night driving here is an experience. I apologize for the hazy shot, but someone, who shall remain nameless, forgot to wipe the dust off the windscreen!!!
Our local town has a golf club of course, which local town hasn't. Now, St Andrew's or Augusta it's not. I often see these 'residents' as I drive into town. The centre of town is only a short walk from where this photograph was taken, about two to three minutes of brisk walking. These guys are not at all worried about the golfers who are about to hit the first ball of the day. I don't need to remind you that rain in our area is not an everyday occurrence!!!!
I do hope my country cultural experience will bring a smile to a few faces.
