Steph's choice for best painting

My choice for best painting

Entrance to the Albury Libarary, where the exhibition was held

Tuesday 29th April

Today we decided to go interstate to NSW (Albury) this is only about 10ms away. We went to the Information Centre to see what was on in the town. We noticed that there is an exhibition of the 2013 Archibald paintings. Not knowing anything about paintings I wasn't sure what to expect. When we got in some of the paintings are amazing and photo like, then the others are DIFFERENT !! Oh well each to their own. Most of the paintings had a small plaque explaining a bit about the painting, and the artist. It was good to see these paintings as I have not seen any paintings of this standard before.

There was also an exhibition of some of the local people who are famous, including the founder of Eagle Boys Pizzas, a lot of tennis champions including Margaret Court. Also Lauren Jackson, the star female basketball player who has played all over the world and at the Olympics.
