Sally Adair: artist-in-residence October 2014

Gunyah was such a blissful experience and a rare opportunity to combine a golden trio of family, art practice and relaxation time. We arrived, we unpacked and spent the entire time in this lovely place except for one brief outing to stock up on supplies.

Everything we needed was at Gunyah – a jetty to swim and fish off, a dingy to explore the surrounds by water, the perfect window seat and balcony to work, muse and read by and not to mention the light rich studio space below. Time slowed down a bit and I found myself being quite productive, having time to chill and play lots of games with the family.

The record player and vinyl were a hit and have inspired us to replace the stylus on our own. Queen’s ‘Killer Queen’ struck a particular cord with the kids.

The weather was fantastic, not to mention some spectacular moon rises. What a wonderful legacy Gunyah is… and the lack of technology was a real bonus! It’s so important to have dedicated creative time and space especially when family can be involved too. Thank you Kath and the Gunyah crew for providing this opportunity!
