“ Walking into the Bayview Show at the MacKay House was like walking into a warm bath full of colour and creativity.

Every piece was an absolute delight, every piece was excellently crafted and I felt immediately welcomed. The award winners

were, as one would rightly expect, excellent – but the other works were close on their heels. From the smallest to the largest there

was ample evidence of the skills and techniques that had been acquired. But beyond this I was captivated by the range of

subjects and the bright cheeriness of the colour used.

And the choice of venue ( THE MCKAYE HOUSE ) added to my enjoyment in good measure – allowing the works to be artfully

displayed with ample elbow and breathing room. I’ll warrant that the historic house relished having the Bayviewites come and

visit for a while.

All in all, a great show and an enthusiastic one “
