Dedication - Marlene McAuliffe

I want to take this opportunity to explain who this exhibition is dedicated to and why.  Marlene McAuliffe was the best of friends to me for over 30 yrs, enfolding me into her family.  Marlene died in 2017.  She was a person who valued friendship; who listened; who was curious and loved beauty; who made each person she spoke to feel important and cherished; who made friends into family.  Those of us who new her know that we were lucky, that our lives are richer for it and always will be.

Marlene's spirit embodies what this exhibition is about. Being curious, seeking beauty, being willing to learn, to cherish and to welcome.
