Thank You

The Art House Tour Committee are proud to present to you a wonderful collection of artworks, in eight superb homes and The Gallery, for the fourth biennial Art House Tour.

Andy Warhol said, “Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”¬†

Art is after all in the eye of the beholder – we have searched far and wide to bring you more artists and more mediums and styles of art. We have been humbled by the responses from the artists wanting to be included in the Tour – thank you all for joining us. We love watching the artists evolve each year, and it is a truly exciting time as we view the works arriving for the Tour.

Art will be displayed in situ in our beautiful Grammar Community homes with many of the artists in residence. We are astounded by the generosity of our homeowners who are so willing to entrust their homes to us and even more so those who relish continuing their relationship with Grammar long after their boys have left.

The ‘just get it done’ mindset is one truly embraced by the School and its community. It is the reason the Tour feels like it rather seamlessly comes together. Thank you to the wonderful parent volunteers on the Committee and further afield, who along with the team in the Development Office and the support of both the Foundation Trust and our sponsors have created this event.

And finally, thank you to all the attendees on our Tour, whether you “love it or hate it”, we are sure there will be many ideas to inspire you in the homes and artworks that you will love and treasure.
