Retrospective of Mary Pratt at the Rooms

Retrospective of Mary Pratt at the Rooms

The unmistakable Folkloric architecture of The Rooms perches precariously atop the town. Inside its glassed walls overlooking the harbour is home to a number of wonderfully curated  spaces in this Art Gallery & Museum combo. We took in the last day of a massive and important retrospective of the remarkable talent of Mary Pratt. We drooled over her meticulously intricate and lovingly painted canvases.

After a delightful lunch, we caught wind that Ms Pratt herself was in attendance. Along with 4 of my lucky ladies, we floated down the stairs and enjoyed a rare opportunity to chat in private with her about her work and process before the room filled up.  We were in awe, struck by her candidness, sparkling eyes and ease. The perfect ending to an incredibly inspiring exhibition.
