Goughs Bay Art and Craft Show Good crowd en­joys open­ing night over Aus­tralia Day week­end

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

IT was a very busy time for Goughs Bay over the Aus­tralia Day long week­end.

Fri­day night saw the open­ing of the ninth Goughs Bay Art and Craft Show with many at­tend­ing an open­ing night of wine and food.

Lo­cal Steve Jor­dan was singing and play­ing the gui­tar while peo­ple walked around brows­ing the art works on show.

The of­fi­cial open­ing saw Bob Forster wel­come ev­ery­one and pass over to David Roff who has opened many of the shows over the years, this time as him­self.

Or­gan­iser Caral Bur­rell then thanked Bob Forster for his help with the show and ev­ery­one who helped her.

She then in­tro­duced Vicki Thomas, the guest artist for the week­end.

Vicki Thomas (Dragon­fly Cre­ations) had a va­ri­ety of work on show from paint­ings, sculp­tures and cake dec­o­ra­tion.

Some of her gar­den art was out­stand­ing and a post that Ned Kelly lent on was the talk of the week­end.

There were some changes for the boat club for the week­end.

The club has a new look color, hav­ing been painted re­cently and down stairs there is now a beau­ti­ful mu­ral painted in three sec­tions by Katie Brum­ley, which ties in with the over­all color scheme.

Satur­day night was a fun night with a tat­too com­pe­ti­tion, with many dif­fer­ent sec­tions to judge and ‘pre­tend’ stick on tat­toos for peo­ple who didn’t have one.

A fun week­end was had for all who came.
