About the 2009 Exhibition
Approximately 105 invited artists were involved with all the works displayed in alphabetical order in single file around the room.  On the finale night Friday Nov 6, the closing silent bid time is at 7.30 pm. The last silent bidder's no. written on the bidding card displayed underneath the work will be the new owner of this work. 50% of the finale bidding amount will be donated to the Gallery.
Generally a fun social finale night though sometimes as witnessed in previous years, is mingled with some hissing and yes, even cat fights amongst friends and complete strangers towards the end, as people desperately try to get a last bid on a favoured artist's work or two, hoping to add to their art collection.

 Rhythm and Rhyme is available in various print formats at my RedBubble Gallery.

 Thanks for visiting.
