“The Dragon Lives” art exhibition opening

May 30, 1997 | Posted in: Art & Culture, Syngnathids

David Muirhead attended the opening of “The Dragon Lives”, the seadragon art exhibition at Semaphore. He was thrilled to be presented with a certificate of appreciation for his support of Dragon Search. He also received a full colour Syngnathid poster.

Noeleen and I visited the seadragon art exhibition on its last day. We enjoyed viewing the numerous paintings, ceramics, photographs and lino prints. We tooks some photographs of our own to remember the exhibition by. Some dry specimens of Syngnathids, including some of mine, were on display as part of a Dragon Search stand there. We saw the magnificent (Gould League?) poster featuring Syngnathids. A nearby bookshop called “Sisters of the Sea” was promoting Seaweek and the art exhibition. We also saw a Syngnathid poster there.
