We would love it if you share a video. Some of my friends up in the sunny coast really want to see it, but Ipswich is a bit far away.
I hope the exhibition is a great success for everyone involved.


Just a side note for anyone on the forum; Nila is happy to paint commissioned works. He is saving up for a really big aviary :wink:

Say, are you familiar with the laws in your area regarding animal performances.......? Just a thought.

I actually considered adding him into my public liability this year, but he is not interested in doing live performances.

Clair, we'll do.

Mayor Paul Pisasale will be there tonight.

Wow, that's nuts. I like the way he mentions having an insane amount of coffee cups in his office makes him seem more human. :mrgreen:
I had never realised good coffee was such a priority in Ipswich.

Can I commission "a Nila"? I'll pay postage plus some extra to buy Nila some oat groats :)
And if Sapphire gets into it... I'll commission one from her as well. I love art

I grew up in Ipswich and all my family live in Ipswich. Is there a chance the exhibition is going for longer than a day?

Openning night we've had a laptop running the video of "the making" of the paintings by Nila next to the paintings.


video played provided by Clair below

Hey Ben,
Dave showed me the pictures of the opening on Facebook. It looked like a great night, and the food looked incredible!

Ellie and I are thinking of making a trip down to check it out, and visit her family. Would Nila be allowed to come in the gallery too? (He usually gives us enough warning to take him outside when he needs to go toilet, so accidents are quite rare)

Ranechild, I'm sure Nila would be happy to produce a work for you. I'll talk to him about it this week. We can send a dvd of him creating it, just for giggles. :P
