Pictures from an Exhibition

On Wednesday night, July 30, we were Bev Knight’s guests at the opening of the Melbourne Art Fair. Eighty galleries were expected to draw 3,000 guests over the course of an evening. I’m not sure what the numbers actually turned out to be, but it was a non-stop evening. We didn’t even manage to visit all the booths that were featuring Indigenous art that evening, and at some of the booths we weren’t able to take even a quick picture. But to give you a sense of what was there on opening night, and with my apologies to those I missed, either on the floor or with the camera, here are a few pictures from the exhibition.

Alcaston Gallery featured Gulumbu Yunupingu and Billy Benn among others
