Keith Lo Bue in Hervey Bay!

Yes! thats right Keith Lo Bue! in Hervey Bay. What a BLAST Keith's exhibition is. Our regional art gallery director persuaded Keith, over a number of years she told the gathering, to finally exhibit a collection of his work.Keith's art hasn't been in a gallery setting for 12 yrs. I went along to his artist talk last night...Why the Wind Blows and other Popular Delusions. What a curious, interesting cool guy he is.

Some of his diehard fans were there. Red streamers to cheer him on. And I'm so proud to say that Keith and Neil Healey's collaborative show was well supported by our local community.

Keith spoke about his creative life and his passion for 'stuff'. we were all delighted to this piece in motion....just finished the night before the exhibition was put together.

Adele Outteridge opened Keith's exhibition. Keith described her as one of Australia's national treasures. I feel so privileged to have been at this event and oh so thankful to be able to hear Keith speak about his art.

Thank you Keith for accepting Hervey Bays invitation to share your was not only a poetic moment, but a memorable one!
