What is this all about?

In 2010, Seven Auckland Jewellery Geeks embarked on a mission to get their work out there and seen by Subliminally Infiltrating other people's openings with the work of that evening's Feature Geek.
In 2011, a few more geeks join in the fun and break a few of the original Subliminal Infiltration rules...

Sharon does an Impromptu Subliminal Infiltration of herself with a little help from the Satellites

Now, Papakura Art Gallery is a long way from the city and I didnt really expect the geeks to turn up, so I didnt plan a Subliminal Infiltration for the opening of Think Twice: a jewellery installation of Manukau School of Visual Arts jewellery department staffers Mary Curtis, Fran Allison, Renee Bevan and Sharon Fitness, especially as this opening was sandwiched between the Lynsay at Masterworks and Cath at Objectspace infiltrations - is there such a thing as too much geeking in one week? Na.

So, at the last minute I decided I could infiltrate my show with me and a photo of me and that would be mildly amusing. Fortuitously, the satellite geeks Jo, Renee and Lillian did some infiltrations of their own, followed by Cath and Nadene when they arrived a little later on. 

I must say that I was extremely impressed by the new look of the Papakura Art Gallery - very professional and white and looking like a very cool gallery space - a long way from the pokey cream hessian wall pinboard community gallery outfit it had last time I ventured this far south.  Well done!

Nadene turned up unadorned (shock horror!) so quickly made a capsicum and pretzel pin.
And Cath wearing Cath infiltrating Frances Hansens show in the entrance gallery 'Nearly Everything'.  I later found our that this rather special little donkey is attached via a magnetic tail which can be attached to the tail end when not being worn.  Magical!
Impromptu Infiltrations are fun!
