Sponsors 2010

Supporting emerging artists is an act of faith; supporting a diverse group of nine artists, mostly unknown in the public domain, but nonetheless believing in their own potential, is generous in the extreme. We are eternally grateful to our many Sponsors who have made our first exhibition possible. By so doing, you have helped us each and every one of us to realise a dream. And, we sincerely hope, you have facilitated something truly worthwhile through 9 Ante Portas. Thank you!


9 ante portas 2010

If it wasn’t for our sponsors this event would not be bonza
And the beaks from THYNNE MACARTNEY take the gold;
We would like to thank you all for answering our call
Your support is not just kindly – it is BOLD

Yes – from solitude & calm right up north there on the farm
The MACDONALD FAMILY simply can’t be missed
As for CHADWICK WILLIAMS HALL we would like to thank you all
Kindly line up at the exit to be kissed!

To their everlasting credit we were helped by EASY EDIT
Who did tricky things to make our website great
We say thanks to ALLY LORD and that everlasting horde
Of attractive young things handing ‘round the plates.

If it weren’t for 4BC and OBRIENS COACHING we
Would be standing in the street to tout our wares
It would be a big no-show but for faithful IVANHOE
And the CALCRAFTS took the edge off all our cares.

As the HAKFOORT GROUP stood up to drink from the sponsor’s cup
So too PILLOW TALK stepped in to smooth our tracks;
And we’d look especially rude if we didn’t thank the TRUDES
‘cause without them all, this show would be quite lax.

Yes, we’d still be in the dark ‘cept for you, VICTORIA PARK
- we would find our glasses emptier by the minute.
We would like to make a fuss about all who sponsored us
….. You facilitated this – so let’s begin it!
