This is what started tomorrow’s Exhibition. Some time ago in Papua New Guinea, Emily Hill painted a watercolour and entered it into the Luk Save Art Show, PNG’s premier display of all things beautiful that is art in such a tribal country.
Emily’s entry was a watercolour of local shells and Red Emperor fish. This was purchased by a man we shall call Dominic who then decided to host a dinner in honour of the artist and the painting. A great night was had by all.
Later when Emily returned to Australia, another still life of beach flotsam and jetsam was painted and Dominic was privy to a viewing. His comment simply was; “Exhibit this painting, build an exhibition around it and I will buy it”.
The Still Life Exhibition was born. Here is that painting.
