exhibition now running

The exhibition opening was a great success. Lots of the old gang turned up over the weekend including Ken Bolton, Pam Brown, Micky Allan, Laurie Duggan, Barbara Brooks, Tom Tompson, Rae Desmond Jones, Alan Jefferies, Kate Richards, Denis Gallagher, Sal and Kurt Brereton. Unfortunately we missed Steve Kelen, Leigh Stokes and Erica Callan. Still, not a bad turnout all weird things considered.

Both poetry readings (Friday night/Saturday arvo) attracted a good crowd too. The three books were launched by Nick Pounder and the last few over run copies were sold on the night.

Media interviews for The Illawarra Mercury, ABC Radio and WINTV News were conducted with Ken Bolton and Kurt Brereton.

Video and audio recordings were made of the opening night and readings. Stay turned for a little feature story on ABC Radio National Poetica with a bit of luck and follow through.

The show runs until May 22. Copies of the 3 new books are included as part of the exhibition.

Kurt Brereton and Pam Brown will be doing an exhibition floor talk at the gallery on May 4 at 12 noon. FREE

Thanks everyone for supporting this rare historic meeting of the arts 'n minds.
