Hi there, so it's been a while between posts but i've been trying to get my hands on some photos of The Fox and the Crow exhibition opening night and some of the works as well. I'll be putting some up as soon as i get them - promise. All in all the show was a success with heaps of people coming to the opening and through the gallery afterward as well. Thanks heaps to Stacy and Yolande for all their support throughout the process, it was a great help!
