Art Crawl 2015 – Sunday, Roberts Creek to Gibsons

Sunday, October 18, our second full day on the Art Crawl!!! We got 28 stickers in our passport by the end of the 2 days which was a push! We tried to get to venues and artists we haven’t been to before so if we missed you, I’m sorry but let me share what we did see.

GumbootCafe

We started nice and early with Gumboot Hash at the Gumboot Cafe and enjoyed Ramon Kubicek artwork, below as we chowed down.

The very impressive This Is It building always packs a punch! What a space! Robert Studer and his family spent a year away in Cambodia and Vietnam (I think) and now share their space with Dean Schutz. Cast glass sculpture and architectural glass.

Jan Poynter and one of her star pupil’s, my hubby, chief cook and this weekend’s chauffeur while I navigated, Dennis O’Brien.

Wonsushi

Exhausted and art saturated, we headed to our favourite sushi spot Sushi Nagomi but it was shut. Up the hill to Won for some yummy Japanese food before our final collapse. What a fabulous weekend!!! Thanks so much to Linda Williams and her team.

I’m glad I got to be a Crawler this year but if my studio would have been open you would have seen many new works … but I had other commitments this year. See you next year back in my studio!

I hope all you Sunshine Coast artists will join us on SunshineCoastArtists.org, my regional artist directory that helps us find each other here on the Coast.
