Merv's Pop-Up Arts Show at Chocolate Lane continues to the end of December.
The Chocolate Lane exhibition coincides with an exhibition including Merv and Irina's work at the New York gallery of their friend and 'curator extraordinaire', Basha Maryanska.
Irina described being 'beyond excited' that her work was in the window of Jadite Galleries in Times Square, 'A big thrill'.
Apparently this is the first time Merv and Irina haven't been in New York when their work is being exhibited. However they seem to be enjoying their 'Pop Up' involvement with Chocolate Lane, Benalla.
Real butterfly wing on acrylic and watercolor on paper. Created on residency in Poland. It was spring, flowers blooming, insects wobbling past on the way to ponds. Our resident musician played lute madrigals on the mandolin. We painted on trestle tables under the trees in the grounds of Hogwarts castle. Pretty and magical that this butterfly wing came my way.
