Finally the big day arrived: Eileen Brooker's retrospective at The Village, Triabunna. Eileen and I used to teach together in the 1970s. Steve's sister, Elizabeth, had also taught with Eileen and they were great friends. So you can understand that this was quite a big deal for us.
Over a hundred guests turned up. I was relieved from fly swishing duty
for a while so I could hover just outside the building to catch some of the action.
Eileen is in her 90s now and was in fine form. I caught up with teaching mates and arty mates I hadn't seen for years. All in all it was a fabulous party. It was impossible to really see the art work so I went back today to take some photos.
Back home we have our own small exhibition of Eileen's work.
I forgot to tell you that I saw my first Easter Lilies of the season at Eileen's house a couple of weeks ago. Eileen drew my attention to them because she loves them.
