206th RI Exhibition opens…

The 206th RI Exhibition was opened officially yesterday at 3pm by Humphrey Ocean RA and RI President Rosa Sepple. Before the doors opened the exhibition  looked stunning, the I’s having been dotted and the T’s crossed. An amazing job had been done by the hanging committee and the Mall Galleries Technicians. Now all we needed were visitors…..

and by 3pm the gallery was packed! Rosa welcomed everyone, thanking all the exhibitors, the Council, Members and sponsors for all their hard work in putting together such a fabulous exhibition, she also offered encouragement to all those who had submitted and not been successful this year. Humphrey Ocean gave a very amusing and insightful and declared the 206th Exhibition open.
