Part of an exhibition last year by local artist Rhonda Crane. We hope to have some of her new work up again this year. The piece in the photograph was bought by the Ipswich Art Gallery. The flowers are made of domestic cleaning pads. We got alot of comments about these, both positive and negative. People were polarised in their opinions women generally enjoying the playfulness of the works and identifying with the ideas they bring to mind, men often dismissing the works as frivolous. Some artists works elicit very little comment, sometimes it can be weeks before a regular customer notices that the exhibition has changed, with these works that did not happen.
