People's Choice Winner of Poems To Paintings Exhibition

Jenny Davidson mentioned a quote to me that beautifully describes what we try to do as artists. “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” words attributed to Leonardo da Vinci. With the Banjo Paterson Poetry Festival being one of our tri-annual exhibition opportunities, the da Vinci quote seemes particularly apt.

Although not as big a festival as FOOD or Wine, our doors saw a lot of happy faces come and go. Some bought art, some bought from our shop, some strolled and pondered but all were happy to have glimpsed not only great contemporary art but also being able to walk into an artist's studio and see the sanctum of creativity. Every one of our visitors voted on the work in the Gore gallery and from the count, one was a clear favourite.

The winner of the Poems To Paintings exhibition held in the Gore gallery during our Banjo Paterson Poetry Festival! Was won by a wide margin with Patricia Lovecek's work titled "Mulga Bill", a fun interpretative rendition of the essence of the poem "Mulga Bill's Bicycle".

Congratulations Trish!
