gallery crawl – part 3

we were getting pretty hungry by this stage

after a brief visit to the bicheno post office to see kelp sculpture and other art displays, we went to the sea life centre restaurant for lunch

it was hard to choose from the many courses on offer – all of them looked delicious

three of us ordered tiger prawns, but others enjoyed seafood chowder, roasted pumpkin soup, spaghetti bolognese and vegetarian lasagne100_4696the beautiful view of the sea was a lovely bonus

waub’s bay gallery was the final stop on our itinerary100_4714100_4715100_4728100_4732a wonderful exhibition of felted and stitched works in wool and silk by talented local artist hanna woolley was on show100_4729100_4731100_4725the textures and colours were amazing100_4730100_4727silk cocoons were used as embellishments, and many of the fibres were hand dyed100_4726 adriftwood and tasmanian native flora complimented the natural materials of the artworks100_4736100_4724100_4737we were also privileged to meet the artist and ask questions about her work

after another coffee stop, it was time to drive home

it was a great day, and one which we will remember for days and weeks to come …

  1. It really was great day… and how lucky we were to meet some of the artists… and to have Hanna actually encourage us to touch her beautiful textured work. Thanks for organizing it all Rita… we must do it again sometime. (soon…LOL)

      • I totally agree! We need to regularly set aside some time to enjoy where we live, our friends and the lovely things around us. It was great to do just that on Monday! =D
