Blown away

Peter and I went to the botanical exhibition at the Redcliffe Museum yesterday and we were blown away with the quality of the works on show! Congratulations to you and all the other artists for putting together such wonderful works! We can only imagine the time it has taken for each piece and to organise all the framing, layout, video... very inspiring. Hopefully we will get to go back again before it closes.

Outstanding

I have just returned from viewing the Artistic Endeavour, and congratulate you and the exhibition committee for a marvellous exhibition. The presentation of artworks and especially the framing was truly outstanding. The standard of art works was exceptional and inspiring. Congratulations again to all involved.

Stunning

Congratulations to you and the whole team on an amazing achievement. The exhibition is stunning on so many levels and I personally find it inspirational for my own artistic development. I hope that we can encourage more of our botanical drawing group to experience it as soon as possible. I look forward to visiting the exhibition again to take in more of the finer nuances of each work.
