My life as an artist in 8 short stories, a story per decade: an illustrated talk by Daylesford’s own artist, Petrus Spronk.

Please join us for an event hosted and created by the formidable and beloved Petrus Spronk, we invite you to this special event.

This talk will happen 2 x: the first in the chapel of The Convent Gallery on August 21st  @ 7:30 pm and the second at Yandoit Uniting Church in Yandoit on August 28 @ 7pm.

Immediately after this talk will be the book launch of Jasmin’s book, the result of a visit to Petrus’ house and studio. Illustrated in black and white, Jamin will read her text while the images are projected. Spronk in conversation with Jamin Walsh. Jamin’s new book is also a work of art. It combines photography and writing. As part of this conversation, Petrus will project the images of the book while Jamin reads aloud from it. This joyous meeting of two artists is a chance to meet both of them in action. Don’t miss this enchanting meeting of these two special people. With possible musical accompaniment by Justine.
