(In the irish language means People of the mounds.)
Terry recently joined Sue Wright, from Tiny Owl Workshop, for a faery exhibition at the Brisbane Mt Coot-tha botanical gardens.
The small art studio within the gardens set the scene for a magical display. If you are in the area, it is worth a visit. Take a look.
The exhibition lasted for just a week and was a mixture of sketches, books, prints and sculptures with the theme of faery. People had entered a whimsical world. The small exhibition, had given a big impact on the locals.
Some lovely quotes from people as they wondered around.
‘I’ve been coming here for years and this is the first time I’ve walked in and smiled.’
‘This world makes me feel much younger than 69. Thank you.’
Terry had specially framed a few archival large prints from our book, which were snapped up. Further prints were ordered and delivered to their new homes. The Faeries of Tasmania book was on display along with limited bags, wrapping paper, block prints and T-Shirts. A special sketch was also on display for book 2.
Sue from Tiny Owl Workshop, had some wonderful sculptures of faeries, harpies, faery jingle bells and brooches, just name a few. She also had an amazing motor bike helmet, which was covered in fungi and moss. It was almost as if nature was reclaiming.
Here are some highlights from the week.
