Basil was invited to open Kerri’s show at Griffith Regional Gallery last weekend. Kerri, from nearby Coleambally, worked in Melbourne in the 1980s with her fashion designing uncle Ross (Weymouth) and his partner John Claringbold. This exhibition featured some of their Gown of the Year-winning creations (now held in the Griffith Regional Gallery’s collection) and Kerri’s homage to them, in the form of screen prints, paintings, assemblages and installations. The exhibition will run for a month and already a large crowd has been to admire Kerri’s fine work and reacquaint themselves with the famous gowns.
