Pictures at an exhibition

On Friday night we drove up to Borgerhout, just outside Antwerp, for the opening night of an art exhibition. Much as I’d love you all to believe that we’re the kind of culture vultures who attend gallery openings all the time, we had another reason for attending this one. Our friend Di was one of the featured artists, and a photo she’d taken of our younger daughter was one of the 15 pieces she’d chosen to display. 

 

There was a variety of interesting work on show, but as the local dignitaries gave their speeches and everyone sipped their wine I found myself more interested in the faces around me than the canvases and sculptures.

 


 
Yes, I know this one’s motion-blurred, but I like it anyway.
