It was a real treat to have Maggie Hall perform the poem she wrote in response to the current exhibition INSIDE OUTSIDE at the opening. What I loved most is that she cleverly wove into the poem the titles of each artist's artwork to create a haunting new narrative that captured the beauty of the art in this exhibition.  I must admit it gave me a few goosebumps when she read it out aloud.  Unfortunately I didn't record it, so you will have to read it here and imagine it spoken by the deep tones of this strong creative woman.

Inside / from / the Outside
Moving text / visual story / life / kept still
Enticing flavour / while the eyes of changing viewers give light a position / a place that may / or may not / have been / when first imagined
We stand still / moving around / this rouletted dance
Setting / grouping / directing . . . Colour that teases erect pink buds beneath slightly opened wetted mouths / hungry for the dish that looks into a crowded room - the want and desire to own the said artists strokes - painted by hand - released only to be hung again in another place
SOLD
Central West to Mirrors Edge / Poppies, Books & Jugs . . .
Apples packed into a Lunch Box Red . . .
In a Garden studied Interior / Kate, Jackson, Henri & Pablo / while Jacqueline studies the Orange . . .
Nightfall / A Tomato moon swamps the Anti Siren / Reassured . . .
North facing Milk Jugs needing a Tyred Swing . . .
In the Dining Room / warm breath / Moving Life / while the Emus Lightness of Step dances across the Back Lane . . .
A Blue Bowl / woven of fabric / Inside / Outside / the Autumn Bird searches for a Father / a Daughter / lost between the Vineyard and Brisbane's Oiled Canvas -
A Meditation to a Feast . .
