We’ve been to Woopi!

Woolgoolga – known to the locals as Woopi – is approximately 20km north of Coffs Harbour.  Friday night was the opening of the Woolgoolga Art Gallery’s annual Lillipilli Exhibition, which runs until 14-October.  We went down for the opening – stayed overnight and went into Coffs Harbour the next day.

Woolgoolga Art Gallery is community run gallery, staffed by volunteers.  Their Lillipilli Exhibition should be an example to all community galleries on how to run a show.  The opening night was just so good – the staff were helpful, food and drink were plentiful, and the art was of a high standard.  I had two entries – a new Fishy Fantasy above, and the Fantasy in a Fishbowl.

Fantasy in a Fishbowl - 1

Saturday morning was a look around Coffs – we checked the shops, bought the groceries, then headed out to the Marina for a stroll around to look at the tourists and locals and to check the shops, including Geoffrey Baker’s Art Gallery, followed  by lunch on the deck at the Yacht – looking out over the bay and the Solitary Islands.  How good is that!
