The 2019 annual exhibition of the Melbourne Chapter was held over four days, Thursday to Sunday, in a vacant retail space in District Docklands, on the west side of the Melbourne central business district. The space was very large being approximately 10 metres X 16 metres. Because of the size of the space it was possible for the thirty one participating members to exhibit at the same time.
On the setup day the space was a hive of activity
Members set individual and collaborative works.
Unfortunately the configuration of the space and the use of our Shoji screens made a photograph of the whole exhibition in one view impossible.
An invitation only, formal opening of the exhibition was held on the first evening. The Chapter President Mrs Trish Ward welcomed Mr Shota TOHARA, the Vice Consul of Japan, who gave a short speech and formally opened the exhibition.
