'Blue Feet' Exhibition, Book Reading & Drawing Demonstration

17 - 20 May 2018

Marsha Wajer MMB

As part of the Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival, Balnaves will be hosting 'Blue Feet' an exhibition of new work by children's book illustrator and artist, Marsha Majers.

Showcasing those gorgeous, goofy dancers…the Blue Footed Boobys. Why do they love to dance? Why do they show their feet off all the time? Marsha has created a delightful series around these (increasingly) rare and cute birds. It’s full of fun, it’s full of colour and has iguanas, octopuses and stripey hats included! 

“Moo and the Sleepy Secret” (illustrated by Marsha) will also be read aloud by the author (Catherine Clarke) out in the garden. Followed by a drawing demonstration where the kids can join in. Crayons and paper provided. Cupcakes for the kids and wine for the adults will be available to purchase. For more information on Marsha Wajer:
