Although it is annual event this is the first time the paparazzi have attended the Country Show in the foyer gallery of the ANU Art School. Even by the social pages’ extremely high standards this is an event of breathtaking silliness … not that there is anything wrong with that. The Country Show is a lot of fun and an excellent excuse to dress up – if one is needed. Also the art … with the overarching theme of a (royal) country show … is really great. Its one of those occasions when artists can let their imagination run riot and there are many coloured ribbons reflecting the overwhelming presence of high commendations.
