Art soothes my soul

Dont you just love Art Gallery openings? Well I know I do and as I live so remotely they are so few and far between. So on Friday I travelled three hours to our next major town to be at the opening of the Port Hedland Art Awards. It was well worth the effort with some amazing pieces on show. The Area I live in have some amazing Indigenous Artists and they are always well represented along side the Non Indigenous Artists. I travelled up with a friend who put her first piece in so it was very exciting . The next day we where treated to a free breakfast and then the judges did a walk through and gave us there expert advice and the reason why certain pieces won prizes. Invaluable info for the new artists on the scene.
