Opening Night Paparazzi
Thanks to everyone for coming along to our opening on Friday night. What I should say is, THANK YOU to everyone for spreading the word because the turn out was IMPRESSIVE! I think we would have had 200 people through the door. We were so happy to get the doors open and we were setting up until the very last minute! It was great to christen the new incarnation of 311 Smith St with a bit of a do and here are some pics of the night.
Lauren and Dave from Patchy Rugs with their friend Liz who went home with a gorgeous Sandra Eterovic print. Good choice Liz!
Phil and Scotty from Philip Stokes Glass Studio came along with their friend whose name has escaped me, sorry! (I can only remember that his name began with C...I think). Very nice guys anyway!
Sim and Emiko were amongst quite a few crew from Arts Project Australia that they had rounded up to attend. Thanks guys!
TwoOne and Bonsai who both do amazing stuff like paint enormous bisons and other beautiful things(TwoOne) and hand stitch awesome leather accessories (Bonsai), also known as Hiro and Scotty, who have been kind enough to be part of Modern Times and I haven't even put their stuff on the website yet. Sorry guys! Come in and check it out in the meantime!
Our other amazing helpers - from left: Eleanor Voterakis (who also does beautiful drawings in graphite and coloured pencil), Katina and Carmen. Thanks guys!
We followed up the opening with an excellent weekend of trading and a warm welcome back from everyone on Smith St. We look forward to the next couple of months!
