JahRoc Galleries had a huge turn out for the opening night celebration of “On Location: Margaret River” exhibition by Joe Webster and Stuart McMillan. The crowd was humming with anticipation to view the artworks as they were kept waiting in suspense for the first 1/2 hour.
Everyone enjoyed an aromatic glass of mulled wine on arrival and then were ushered in to watch a creative video by Frank Bennett that showed an entertaining back story about the journey that the 2 artists’s took to get to the opening night.
The rush was then on to move into the exhibition space and experience the energy emanating from Joe Webster’s paintings and Stu McMillans sculptures.
Entertainment by Juni (Virginia Paris) and Frank Bennett kicked in with creativity and good vibes enjoyed by all.
