One of Sydney’s steamiest summer evenings made for a perfect Mediterranean soirée and Opening Event for our Grand Finalé group exhibition of 2015 ~ RIVIERA.
Guests were transported to the dreamy haze of the RIVIERA by potted cacti surrounds reminiscent of the iconic coastline, sweet strums of the spanish guitar and the evocative Mediterranean-inspired works of 13 artists.
It was a true honour to have International award winning designer & author Jamie Durie welcome all with a heartfelt opening speech. Jamie talked about how wonderful it was to return to Sydney to see old friends artists Tracey Deep, Evi O. grow into the talented artists they are today and meeting new ones. Jamie also commended Saint Cloche for creating a space that supports local art and the importance of keeping it alive. Thank you Jamie.
Merci beaucoup, grazie mille.
Guests were served refreshing cocktails of ‘Le Riviera’, an elixir mixed especially for RIVIERA with premium French single malt whiskey by Le Baron Des Spirits
Reminiscent of the picturesque Amalfi coast town, Cire Trudon’s luxuriously scented ‘Positano’ candle filled the space with the delicate floral notes of Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Gardenia, Magnolia, Tuberose and Lily
