A Different Kettle of Fish Opening Reception

A Different Kettle of Fish Opening Reception Grey Highlands Artist Collective We use ‘sayings’ every day. They can express a complicated idea in a nutshell. This descriptive language encapsulates greater meaning, envisioning the message. Idioms may give us visual clues, but can be confusing if you don’t know what they mean. GHAC members, Melanie Earle, Shauna Earle and Carol Wood have invited guest artists’ Fran Bouwman, Sean Keating and Lazarus Ioannou to create new work based on this theme. Exhibit open June 27 to Sept 10.
