It’s a small world

One of my favourite artists, Avril Thomas from Magpie Springs Gallery, Vineyard and Cellar Door, is holding an exhibition of small works from people all round the world. Proceeds from this show will go towards helping Marilyn Jetty Swim raise money for Cancer Research with Cancer Council SA, something that is very dear to Avril. All works are unframed and only 4″x6″ to make postage easy and inexpensive. The art will be displayed at her gallery in the Adelaide Hills and sales will be via auction. Gallery hrs:- Fri Sat Sun 11 – 5 Magpie Springs, 1870 Brookman Rd HOPE FOREST SOUTH AUSTRALIA 5172

Check out Magpie Springs Facebook page and also the “It’s a small world” page.

I have been honoured to be asked to take part and have sent this small piece called “A mother’s Protection”.

  1. Yes it’s a great exhibition. Avril is such a lovely person and I know she has worked very hard to make this happen. You’re a cool dude for helping out. Is that a scratchboard of the giraffe. I was going to send something but I thought it had to be on paper.

  2. Hello Patrick – I feel we may have been to school together at Pembroke House? FYI I am a wildlife & landscape artist still living in Kenya. I’ve recently moved from Gilgil to Voi so that I can watch & grow old beside the wonderful Red Elephants of Tsavo!!
    Reading yr blogs is almost a page out of my biography – influenced by Hobo Swift (my brother’s God father), David Shepherd, Simon Combes (friend) and so it goes on……Pls get in touch. Best wishes Chris.
