ART ON FARMS Opening Night

Bar staff Ray and William kept the champagne (and other beverages) flowing all night
Thanks to everyone who brought

Postmodern, are we not?
The book is just gorgeous!
Thank you to the writers, photographers and all the featured farmers and artists, as well as Paul at Artplan, who went above and beyond, and our friends at Braidwood Community Bank for their support, so that the participants in the project could receive their copies for free.

Lovely black-and-white works on the Red Wall.
Christine did a great job coordinating the exhibition and book, and massing the troops. Thanks Christine!
BRAG would also like to thank all the participants, all the volunteers, and our kind sponsors Braidwood Community Bank and QPRC.
Martin collaborated with both John Wolesley and Paul Cockram to create visual depictions of his moated dam. Visitors thoroughly enjoyed a walk-through session at Martin's place to see the earthworks and hear about the ideas behind it.
Must've been a good joke!

Having a catch-up.
