And so we say goodbye

This Friday is the last day of Correct Tension. It has been a pleasure having Helen Martin's textile-inspired ceramics in the gallery space. Every day I have spent a little time contemplating in the quiet, gentle atmosphere of her work.

It's been amusing watching from the corner of my eye as visitors decide whether or not to resist the urge to touch a piece and I have enjoyed everyone's fascination and questions about Helen's techniques.

This was the first exhibition to take place as a result of our interstate artist opportunity and all in all the experience has been gratifying. I feel we achieved what we set out to do - expose our Melbourne audience to work they may not otherwise have the opportunity to see 'in the flesh' and broadened the audience of a worthy and innovative ceramic artist.

I am certainly looking forward to future shows from interstate ceramicists and am in the process of finalising the application process for 2010.
