TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED OUR ART- OUR THANKS
It is with great sadness, that after many years of working with glass and creating, and waiting over 8 years years for a resolution to our property damaged in 2012 by flooding, I have put down the glass cutter.
The loss of my work studio, as a result of sewerage inundation in 2010 and flooding again in 2012 requiring us to evacuate and relocate on both occasions and since 2012 renting at own expense, we have had little or no option given the limitations. Continuing leadlight construction is difficult if due to limited space and loss of studio. The 2012 flooding disrupted my leadlight work resulting in suspension of all artistic pursuits including leadlight construction for what was envisaged to be a short period of time but which extended from months into years. It is now a decade since the 2010 disruption. ( October 2010).
While Les is still producing a few artworks, due to various limitations including the recent pandemic, and us still waiting indefinitely for certain Local and State Government Departments given tardiness in finalising their Voluntary Purchase Scheme in the township of Lockhart, lack of attention to our requests to expedite, our lives along with many of our prior activities our goals having flown out the window, seemingly indefinitely and still no time frame.
Our property still remains in a state of disrepair. ( The VPS - reclamation and demolition being determined as a result of independent tax payer funded studies conducted in 2013 and 2014 relative to our property being situated in a HIGH RISK area, along with recommendations and a priority list compiled but still no action.
To each and every one of you, we extend our thanks and appreciation, and send all good wishes. Stay Safe !
