Hi Folks
Rusty Glen here
I thought id let you all know about a very special art exibition taking place in Stratford July 16th - August 8th

The exibition is titled "Illusions Lies and Half-Truths

The very talented artist is my sister, Heather Glen

The body of work focusing on power structures and belief systems that shape our lives- using the example of the history of adoption in New Zealand.

It will include stories, comments,photos, poetry,and social commentary collected on canvas.
A huge range of Heather Glens original paintings form the frame work of the exibition, many of which are available for sale, others on loan from private collectors, who have already discovered her art.

The opening is being performed by the Rt Hon Jonathan Hunt, whom tabled the open adoption bill, paving the way for many like Heather and myself to reconnect with our birth families.

Heather and I were raised in a family, where 3 of the four children were adopted, including myself which made for an interesting gene pool.
