Artist Dinner at The Australian Embassy Tokyo

LKG_BLOG_Australian_Embassy_Tokyo_650Australian Ambassador to Japan Mr Bruce Miller hosted a dinner for Lesley Kehoe Galleries’ artists at the Tokyo Residence on October 19. This was a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the many artists who work with the Galleries and to thank them for their faith in us. In the genial ambience of the Ambassador’s hosting, artists were able to meet their peers in relaxed and informal surroundings. Guest of honour Lesley Kehoe was sadly unable to attend due to a nasty flu virus, and Byron took her place admirably. He reported on the many supportive and grateful comments made by the artists noting Lesley’s significant contribution to their careers. An oasis of international art in Australia with little acknowledgment in the local art scene, our sincere thanks go to Ambassador Miller for his recognition of the Galleries’ longstanding activities promoting Japanese art and culture.
