The Collections are mounting

Since September we have been in Waikerie on the search for Collectors and their Collections. And in similar keeping with what happened last year with Temporary Art Gallery, one connection brought as many others. Our sincere thanks to Gwen Webber and Ros Simpfendorfer for being on the lookout and leading us to so many people and especially the boy with the over 400 glass bottle collection!!!

Currently we are in the Waikerie Institute preparing for this weekends event on the 26 & 27th Sept and hoping the crowds will come.

Here is the stellar line up of Collectors/Collections on display

– John Hunter / model boats in bottles

– Trevor Kleeman / Oil tins, d shackles and jacks

– Wade Kokegei / glass bottles
