Hi all,
Event was staged as planned. We had the opening by the mayor of Strathfield Council. Approx 45 people attended over the weekend.
There was a glitch with the Council double-booking the room on the Sunday so this was unexpected and we were not happy with this error.
We were fortunate to have savant artist Ping Lian Yeak attend the event, and he even setup a table and was demonstrating his artistic skills for all attendees to witness. It is a rare thing for people to watch an artist at work.
Thanks to Together program for promoting.
Ian Mackenzie
