Jocale II

Jocale – according to the online Latin dictionary it means jewel, though according to Wikipedia, it traces back further to mean ‘plaything’ in Latin.

At Abbotsford Convent the current definition is; ‘an exhibition at the C3 gallery’. I know, cos I went to the opening of Jocale last night. It’s an amazing show. Beautiful work, with well thought out presentation. I’ve got a few favourites marked on my price list that I’m keen to make my playthings…
