Especially when you yearn for a piece from your fave artists but just can’t quite stretch your budget to full-on exhibition work.
Enter the miniature – domestically trained and eminently affordable.
Bilk’s miniature show opened last night and if you’ve been lusting after a Tevita Havea piece, then here’s your big chance…
The only difficulty now is choice – you’re spoiled for it!
[Get in quick, that’s our advice. n(Ed)]
The Gang’s bidding a happy/sad farewell to those wonderful shields of Michael Brogan’s which have graced the exercise yard for the past three and a half years (boy, does time fly.) They’re off to Versailles for an exhibition later in the year – how exciting is that!!
Don’t have all the details, except that he’s showing with Bibi Barba (we’ll plaster all the gaps with visuals as soon as they come to hand.)
Anyhoo, we started packing them up today – Michael’s coming through to pick them up next week, which makes for double regret because we’ll miss him as well (Megsie’s off to Bangkok on Saturday.) Bummer.
How privileged we’ve been to have enjoyed custodianship, however temporary. And what a buzz to wave them off to France.
Time to eat cake!
The Gang was bailed up last week (poor Megsie’s in a moonboot now) and couldn’t get across to Wagga Wagga for the opening of the National Student Art Glass Prize 2014. Luckily Michael Scarrone is a seriously good bloke – and he’s sent across all the eye candy so we’ve not missed out entirely. (We’ve bunged in the media releases FY general I – though obviously you’ve missed the celebratory events.)
Winner this year was University of Sydney student Sarah Michelle Humphrey with her ensemble piece A Giocherellare…
…featuring a violin and cello, which morphed into a recital on Sunday for those lucky enough to attend…
We’ve been reliably informed that it was fabulous. What a great note for the associated launch events to end on.
Out of a finalist field of 23 there were two honourable mentions…
For the rest of the field, go here.
Thanks Michael. Hope the concert tours…
