An afternoon of art and tea.

Dear Friends,
I would humbly like to invite you to an afternoon of art and tea.
There will be conversation, friendly faces, something to nibble on and my abstract photography to view and purchase.

This will take place on:
Sunday the 15th of February, between 2-4pm.

the venue is:
Umberto Espresso Bar.
822 High St, Thornbury 3071
(up near the Dundas St, intersection).

There will be hot and cold beverages (both alcoholic and non) to purchase at the venue, on the day.

I will be arranging some small things to nibble on and for catering purposes, it would be greatly appreciated if you can advise  me if you will be popping in (hopefully with friends!), by Tuesday the 10th of February.

People have asked the size of prints and the cost:
I have framed prints in three sizes, 8 x 12 inches,   12 x 18 Inches and 20 x 30 inches.
Prices ranges from $100 - $390.

I do hope you can attend on the day. If not, have no fear. The exhibition is on until Sunday the 14th of March.  Umberto's hours  are: Wednesday to Sunday 8am-9pm (i.e. closed Monday and Tuesday). The food is great and they do get busy, so it is best to book if you intend to go on an evening!

Looking forward to seeing you,

  1. i know you'll have a successful exhibition Matthew. it looks like a lovely venue and your wonderful works speak for themselves. i can't attend but i will definitely come to one of your shows one day. i'll put it on my bucket list :) a weekend in melbourne sounds good to me

    1. Awww Thank you Yevisha! I haven't forgotten that i have promised to lend you my camera when you are in town, if you need it :-)
      I think, as crazy as this sounds, having "attend an exhibition by matthew schiavello", placed on someones bucket list is one of the most beautiful things an artist could ever wish for! :-)

  2. Hello Matthew,

    We wish you a very successful exhibition and are just sorry that an Ocean separates us and prevents us from being there.

    The whole idea sounds delightful. What could be nicer than Art and Afternoon Tea? So civilised.

    1. Dear Jane and Lance,
      thank you so much for the well wishes!
      I obviously agree with you about an afternoon of art adn tea is very civilised.
