Frost Fest was a hot time in the arts :)

The CCCs were super busy over the Frost Fest celebrations in Orange this August.
We not only had the Barracks Studios open, but managed a Pop Up Gallery at one of the most frequented shopping centers in Orange, in addition to contributing art towards the Fire and Frost exhibition at the Function Centre.

Though they only had a few days to organise it, Joy and Derek did a fab job with our first instant gallery. So popular was the Pop Up Art Gallery that we had a welcome extension for an extra week. Today it was womanned by Jan who by lunch time counted almost 100 people through the doors!

Some dedicated artists put in a lot of work and time to prepare and keep both gallery spaces going, from which all artists benefit. Thank goodness for the selfless ones in our midst and the ones who could steal a few hours from their busy lives :)  They are now looking forward to the time back to their other life, the one that fills their soul with joy and the canvas with colour :)

Below are a couple of photos from the opening night at the start of Frost Fest.
