The ANU has just added one of Klaus’s wall pieces, Floating Red, to their collection. Gorgey.

If you fancy checking it out in the flesh, it’s in the ANU College of Business and Economics (Bldg 26C.)

27 05 2010

Hey dudes, it’s happy birthday to the bloggo today and we’re marking the occasion with a couple of treats sent through by Nige…

This first one’s from artdaily – and what a sweet l’il greeting card it is!

And then this next number’s from Max…

What a ripper.

Here at the hideout we feel especially blessed, and we’re looking forward to another year on the bleachers.

24 05 2010

Thanks to Klausie for sending through a coupla snaps from the official launch of Warren Langley’s installation at the Canberra Glassworks last Friday.

[Hmmm. Kinda lacks the lyricism of the freeway piece, eh. n(Ed)]

The force be with you.





Postcard from London…

22 05 2010

Jane Bruce sends word that she had the ‘lovely fortune of unexpectedly catching up with Tevita’ at the Saatchi Gallery last week…

…where she snapped him in situ at Collect. Love that piece – hope it’s schnapped up by a serious collection/gallery.





Freeway art we finally do like…

20 05 2010

Wow, we love this latest work of Wazza’s – unveiled earlier this week in Sydney. Fabulous.

Check it out in all its glory at artdaily.

Hope the smoke stack at the Canberra Glassworks, being officially launched tomorrow night, is as cool…





Glass biz from Sydders…

20 05 2010

Spike’s just sent in the latest from her end of the glass fish tank: Marcus Dillon’s ORGANIC MECHANICS, currently showing at Gaffa

Can’t say that we’re entirely convinced by the artspeak, but those cast spotties look intriguing enough from a distance. Show’s up until June 1st.

Thanks Spike.





Gotta love the Europeans…

Serious excitements from Wagga Wagga…

11 05 2010

Maybe about two years ago (time’s become such a blur now) the Gang went to Wagga Wagga, primarily to check out Chick’s show from memory but we caught the added bonus of the first Crossfire exhibition – a wonderful visual dialogue between the Wagga Art Gallery ‘s foundation collections of glass and print. 

Trés exciting show, for so many reasons.

Anyhoo, Crossfire Mark II is now up and running, and it looks fabulous. Thanks to Mikey Scarrone for sending through the good oil…

Crossfire 2 – Print and Glass

Crossfire is back by popular demand! Crossfire 2 is the second exhibition which highlights a multitude of connections between the mediums of print and glass from the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery’s two collections – National Art Glass Collection and the Margaret Carnegie Print Collection.

The exhibition looks at the Collections in cross-disciplinary and innovative ways, breaking down the barriers between media and incorporating creative methodologies.  The exhibition features a number of recent acquisitions of prints and glass as well as some rarely seen works from the Collections.

Crossfire 2 includes artists who have creatively responded to works by other artists, processes such as etching and engraving which are used in both media and pairings of prints and glass that have thematic and conceptual resonances. Crossfire also highlights many of the most prominent artists in the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery‘s two collections including John Olsen and Nick Wirdnam, Hossein Valamanesh and Gerry King and George Baldessin and Nick Mount.

Curators –  Cath Bowdler, Michael Scarrone and Stephen Payne

Exhibition Dates: Saturday, 24 April – Sunday, 31 May, 2010

Check out the snaps – we can feel a day trip coming on…

Way interesting looking show…probably not hard to figure out our all time fave ‘coupling’…!!
