Guests were greeted by the one man band Uptown Brown - he really lifted the energy of the event.

The title of this show "Meander" inspired some of the artists in their work - for others meander was a reflection of their career path. However it impinged, the island encourages everyone to meander amongst the works in the gallery, the sculpture placed around the island and the restored "natural" bushland the result of work by the Friends of Herring Island and Parks Victoria.


Images of the works in the exhibition can be seen here.
