Thanksgiving Dinner and Farewell To Sarah
The Popop community enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving feast over the past weekend organized by Popop artist and Education Officer Katrina Cartwright.
Cris prepared a succulent, perfectly-cooked, golden-brown turkey, which was accompanied by home-made stuffing and cranberry sauce. Several members of the Popop community brought or made side dishes including mashed potatoes (mashed with a fork by Sarah), baked macaroni and cheese, a huge salad topped with feta cheese, peas & rice and a variety of desserts. There was also beer, wine and a delicious carrot juice prepared by Richardo Barrett‘s mother.
Margot spun the tunes on her ipad. It was a delightful and festive occasion and made great use of Popop’s newly refurbished kitchen.
The get-together also doubled as a farewell party for Sarah Deppe, the international artist in residence from Iowa.
A recent graduate of the University of North Iowa (UNI) in Sculpture, Sarah was participating in an international exchange programme which came about as a result of a week-long residency completed by Antonius Roberts at the University.
Sarah spent a month in the Bahamas assisting Antonius Roberts on various projects. She stayed at Popopstudios during her residency where she blended well with the community of artists and everyone was sad to see her go. She left on November 30 but plans to return early next year for a longer residency term.
