The Yallop & Smith Memorial Exhibition is based on the enduring concept of friendship and community and a chance remember and celebrate the lives of two good friends Ray Yallop and Des Smith. The Exhibition is an on going salon installation in the style of the Yallop & Smith Residence that was in Grant Street, Dunedin, New Zealand. Cluttered artworks of all kinds would vanish into a tapestry of colour, under an endless sea of style, medium and form. The collection represented an endless expanding community of artists that would meet at ‘Des and Ray’s Place’ at least once a year for unveilings of new works, birthday celebrations and even a wedding. It was a place that felt like home, where all were always welcome, and accepted for who they were.
The exhibition includes artwork by those that knew Des and Ray and those that possibly would have.
