Exhibition Sumie

This was my first exhibition in Adelaide after returning from Switzerland in the late 1990's.

I held it in a little Indian dance studio in Tranmere.

It was lots of fun but as usual a lot of work.

Being an artist of a rare or foreign form or art is also linked to educating the public as to the art itself.

I was the only person in Adelaide exhibiting Sumi-E at the time.

Later I taught in the WEA Workers Education Association which went a long way in publicizing the artform.

I always got support from Arts SA and CARCLEW where I did a lot of school related activities including touring in schools and workshops.
