Joe gave us a fascinating and interesting talk rather than  the usual demonstration on Tuesday evening 28 Nov. He has been many things in his life so far including auctioneer, art auctioneer, licenced builder, plumber, gas fitter, spray painter, panelbeater and more.

He spent a lot of his time mixing with Australian artists and artist's models. 

He brought in and displayed for us twenty odd original paintings - see list below and some of the paintings.His collection of original newspaper clippings, art books and art memorabilia was extensive. 

His knowledge of dates and facts and figures regarding the Sydney art scene over the last few decades was informative and fascinating.

Below are eight photos to give you an idea of the night for those who couldn't make it. You missed a unique event.
