McKinlay Mosiac Day ...

At first glance, if you've never been to the town of  McKinlay,  you might be forgiven for thinking there's not much to do...  besides stopping to see (and have a drink) at the very famous "Walkabout Creek Hotel" from the first Crocodile Dundee Movie ...  

but you'd be mistaken, because there's a little building called the Crafty Old Schoolhouse ... just around the corner

 where plenty of action takes place from time to time when the locals all get together for some art and craft.
I was very flattered to be asked again to take a mosaic class down there, so  I headed off early and had my favourite podcast playing for the drive.

Everyone got into it and had their projects worked out... (feeling grateful for the aircon... it was a VERY hot day outside - in the 40's...)

... the works in progress !!

... and so great to see them when they're grouted.  I think it's the grout that really brings a piece together.  Don't they look fabulous?!!

Pianola Re-Imagined

Recently Sue Tilley from the Drill Hall was given a box of beautiful old Pianola Rolls ...

Consequently she organized an exhibition which brought out the amazing talent of many North Queensland Artists ...

"Over 30 local artists and students have ‘reimagined’ antique Pianola Rolls, into contemporary artworks. In the early 1900s, pianolas were a popular form of entertainment in homes and at restaurants. Artists have used a variety of skills to ‘reimagine’ these nostalgic pieces for our current era."

Behold ... the Pianola Re-Imagined exhibition ... which will run until March 21.
