Magpie Drinking

This is one way of looking at survival as now the birds are looking for water in back yards as well as streets. This one has it sorted for now.

Happy Hour 5:00 to 6:00 pm Saturday 7th December

Ways to remember. Clive James wrote about the Australian Happy Hour with mirth of course. Let me know if you can visit Gallery 48 on the 7th December.

We will close for Christmas after that. Though we have an advertisement in Art Guide for January February 2020 the gallery will close for the heat. We may be available through appointments. See contacts please.
