Hijinks on the High Seas Christmas Celebration
Friends of Mosman Art Gallery, 8 December 2011
The Mosman Art Gallery was awash with the sights and sounds of the sea when the Friends gathered in December 2011 for a Highjinks on the High Seas Christmas celebration.
Smartly attired naval officers, a crusty crew of sailors, and a band of motley pirates were among those who filled the gallery space where they feasted upon festive food, drank a few pints, spun a yarn or two and danced to the seafaring songs performed by the live band, Loose Juice.
During the night, the gallery’s seafaring Friends were treated to a tour of “Ship to Shore: 11th National Australian Society of Marine Artists” presented by the Gallery Guides. ‘Twas certainly a night of swashbuckling fun!
