Fri 23rd November - February 2019
The Artists Choice: The year has flown by and Blue Knob Hall Gallery’s last exhibition for the year is ‘The Artist’s Choice’. This is the annual show where there is no theme and artists bring in whatever they want to exhibit without the usual constrictions to work to. The exhibition has a great variety of mediums from paintings, sculpture, fibre, pottery and installations. The Opening night had a good turnout of artists and patrons who were treated to a wonderful performance by Vocal Minority choir. Jeni Kendell opened the exhibition with some beautiful words with an acknowledgment of Robin Moore who was so integral to Blue Knob Hall Gallery, Cafe and Ceramic Studio from the beginning and is missed dearly after having passed away in June this year. A big thank you was given to all the volunteers whose dedication keeps the place thriving, and enables a continued support of the arts. It is an expression of the community spirit that is alive and well in this greater area that we live in. The meal provided by Blue Knob Cafe and Paul Scott was a big hit, and he will continue into 2019 with his presence and unstinting volunteering as the cafe manager.
The Gallery will be closed from 24th December and re-opening on Thurs January 10th for a well earned break for all the volunteers. The Gallery & the Cafe will be open on Saturdays only during this period for The Blue Knob Farmers Market. On behalf of Blue Knob Hall Gallery/Cafe & Ceramic Studio we wish you all the best for the festive season, and look forward to bringing you more art, food and friendship in 2019.
