getting into art

It was a great day at Burrinja getting into art. The community were out in force to find out the local happenings at Burrinja.

Aunty Dot was there doing basket weaving, the Treefern Potters were showing their wares, the children had a chance to try their hand at pottery, artists gave talks on their exhibitions, bush tucker was available on the barby, local musos provided live entertainment, the artist studios threw open their doors, it was a fantastic day out.

Me and Alex at the Jarmbi Gallery in Burrinja with one of his marvellous creations. Alex is a sculptor, potter, poet, has a myriad of other artistic pursuits and is a great supporter of Burrinja.
The place was buzzing with activity and reinforces Burrinja’s place as a key cultural centre in the Dandenong Ranges.
