Previewing the Sculpture Exhibition


On the evening of Friday 1st February a group of 45 took the arts dinner cruise to Herring Island. We boarded Florence on the Yarra at Southbank. It was a magical evening - perfect weather for cruising, great company (of course) an excellent meal, and a rare dusk visit to Herring Island and its gallery full of sculpture.
The president of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, John Wooller gave us a talk about the work in the gallery. Then back on board for the main meal and a cruise to the wilds of Toorak.

This was our first evening arts cruise to the island. Next season we intend to preview each exhibition in the series. For the artists and organisers it is a wonderful way to finish the hurly burly of creation and installation of the work and celebrate the start of the exhibition.
