Threads Exhibition - Nelia Gallery

Last Sunday the kids and I had a lovely morning (after our hour drive) at the tiny township of Nelia ...


Georgi - (local resident of Nelia) and huge fan of the arts, had organized a wonderful exhibition called Threads.
 



All the exhibitors were local ladies who work with fabric and yours truly was also invited to exhibit (which was very flattering).


So .... if you or anyone travelling in North West Queensland, make sure you stop in at Nelia and pop into the gallery.  It's directly across the road from the famous Brolga family  - the recent addition to Nelia thanks to Townsville Artist Sue  Tilley.  {I did a blog on Sue's fantastic work last year ... click to see post}

Culture is alive and well in North West Queensland.

... culture vultures arriving ...

Donations were also made to the Qld Cancer Council

 
... cups of tea in the shade ... and then off to enjoy the exhibition ...

















The lovely embroidery work of Alexandra Westlund (Georgi's daughter). Alexandra isn't a local resident but this is the perfect place to showcase her work and we are very proud to have her work in our exhibition.










 


























 








... wonderful artspace ...









 



... guess who ...
 



 



 
 
... I think I would speak for all when I say a big thank you to Georgi for organizing this wonderful exhibition and giving us the chance to show off the many and varied talents of the ladies of the McKinlay Shire.


Threads Exhibition will be open to the public (and it's only about 2km off the Flinders highway!) until  June 2nd.
