Opening Night 30 Dec 2015 Article Detail Thursday 5 March 2009 Sarah Eades The opening night celebrations for Yinka Shonibare MBE held last Friday were fabulous. Our Art Lounge was decorated with brightly coloured candles on black candelabras all over the room which gave an atmosphere of glamour and colour, appropriate to the beautiful work upstairs. To add to this the staff serving for the evening, from Dawsons Catering, were painted by Sandy Cutts with the most amazing masks. Here are a couple of photos of what they looked like. Lastly a few images from the night. If you would like to see more have a look see more check out our photostream here on Flickr.
