Standing Room Only

Before we left for the reception yesterday I asked Gary to help make another batch of the celery sticks. Luckily I did they were a big hit and there were lots of crowds last night. Gary keeps saying he isn't talented, but he always thinks outside the box. I think he'd be building something like this if he worked in three dimensional art.

Here's a few random shots I took from last night before the crowds arrived. Check out this alligator serving dish, I love it.

The reception was literally standing room only even though the Stirling Gallery is located upstairs and the entrance is behind the building.

Art walkers in Dunedin obviously know their way around the galleries.

With lots of food, wine, music, exuberant artists and patrons alike, it was an enjoyable evening for all. Got in very late last night.

I hope to get more photos today. Gotta run since I have to be back down there again for the show sale which continues from noon to 3 p.m today, more later. Thanks for stopping in last night and for all your well wishes here on the blog, your comments mean a lot to me, I'll reply individually tomorrow.
