The Opening

the opening2

The Gallery really was the Theomin’s drying room – the pulleys are still in place!

The day is nearly over and it’s been a long one. Within half an hour of arriving at Olveston this morning a camera man and reporter arrived from Channel 39. I’m not fond of cameras and I’m definitely not comfortable talking in front of them so I was pleased I had little warning and panic didn’t have time to settle in!

Peter Gregory’s vases and the exhibition book

Sunday afternoon is going to be a real treat. Terry MacTavish called in tonight, on her way home from Parent Teacher interviews, with news of Sunday’s line-up….

My Readers are Louise Petherbridge, John Watson, Joan MacDonald, Katrina Selbie, Heike Cebulla-Elder, and some of my Tempest girls (Sarah Latta, Johanna Leach, Amber Little ) with maybe Kameron Crozier from Kings.  My mother Shona is doing a guest spot for the Vase poem!

If you want to come along, ring Olveston  477 3320, and book a seat. It’s free and it’s going to be a wonderful afternoon.
