Vivienne McDermott - Recent Works

Arthur Gallery, Ballarat.
October 5th - 31st.

Hi there to anyone who may be looking at this. I am fresh out of exhibit at Arthur Gallery.
The photos following are taken of the work in the space. I do endeavor to tidy them up a little, and perhaps add some details, thus making them things a little more presentable, but just wanted to get something up. ( anyone who knows me will realise i will struggle with this!!)
happy viewing!
