Nice Day! is installed now in the Gallery. This is the first time that I have seen my photographs framed. I had them framed at  Doggett St Studio because I wanted conservation framing. Thanks to Scott for squueezing the job in just before Christmas. With all the end of year appointments I had no way of picking the work up or delivering it to the gallery myself. So I used a courier,  I rang around different courier companies and they were a little duanted at the idea of picking up artwork that was not packed and delivering it to a Art Gallery. Some couiers even had on their web site no request is to big, so I rang them and it turned out they didn't have blankets or wouldn't get blankets and I couldn't pay by credit card, so I had to wait at least a day before my direct deposit would be cleared. And they weren't cheaper.

Thank goodness I got on to Pack and Send. Adam from Pack and Send (p: 07 38329229) took care of everything and made me feel very confident that the work would be looked after, nothing seemed to be to much trouble. I hinted that blankets would be needed to separate and protect the work he said don't worry we do this for galleries and artists all over Brisbane. It cost me $99 however I figured with petrol and driving once or twice to Brisbane and back to the Sunshine coast and the cost of fuel and the sanity of a 4-5 hour round trip each time pending traffic with 2 delightful children. It was money well spent. I can't wait to see them up close. The show looks great and I am really looking forward to opening night it has been a long time comming and now it's finally here. If anyone is still thinking about comming to the opening night R.S.V.P by emailing Logan Art Gallery artgallery@logan.qld.gov.au
or  Phone: 3412 5519  otherwise it's open now till the 19th February

It is always so exciting to see your work framed, it feels like the end of a journey and you get to sit back and see it with fresh eyes.
I am sure you will be very pleased with your choice of framer (I have been) and I too am looking forward to seeing them in the flesh Candy.
Great to see the sneak preview of the show.
See you at the opening
