What Still Remains: Ginninderra Blacksmiths installation

As part of the 2012 Heritage Festival, “What Still Remains: Ginninderra Blacksmith’s Workshop” was a one evening video installation by a great couple of artists whom it is a pleasure to know: Janice Kuczkowski and Joseph Falsone. With Joseph’s beautiful words and Janice’s fabulous video skills, the work brought into context the history of what […]

Screen Graphics exhibition opening

Canberra needs to have it snow. With it’s cold grey government buildings, grey deciduous trees, fogged and frosted mornings and an icy persistent chill in the air it would be best for its identity if it could actually produce the white fluffy stuff. It might even help soften its outside reputation. As it is it […]

Regional Galleries – Treasures of the Towns

Well, it’s back to work again after a 5-week camping/roadtrip up to Cairns and back. And among all of the exciting and wondrous sights (Carnarvon Gorge in Queensland was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!), several highlights were the visits to various regional galleries of which we saw Newcastle, Maitland and Gosford. We also dropped in on the Queensland Art […]
