Oamaru exhibition postscript

The exhibition in Oamaru was very well received. The Colin Mckenzie Lounge is an ideal exhibition space with a lot of natural light and room for at least 25 large prints. The clan tartans on the walls added to the atmosphere, and the whole thing worked wonderfully.

My thanks to all who helped with the preparation and staging of the event. Particularly Sonja who helped with the layout, hanging and cataloguing.

It was also wonderful to meet the visitors to New Zealand who came out from the United Kingdom to participate in the Oamaru Scott 100.

And my thanks to all who bought prints. I hope they give you many years of pleasure.

I have found an unexpected advantage in owning a large format printer. Using digital projectors in unfamiliar surrounds has always been a little nerve-wracking, as a lot can go wrong. Being able to illustrate a lecture on twenty-four inch wide poster paper mounted on an easel is a good solution. I used foam core as a backing and made up a nice piece of mahogany moulding to hold all the sheets together along the top edge. All one has to do is avoid knocking over the easel. That takes a little practice!
