Anybody surfing the airways this coming week during Drive with Louise Maher on ABC Radio 666 Canberra can catch Bill Brown’s biographical feature on Klaus’s  illustriously long (and continuing) practice.

No specific time, but 666 Drive kicks off from 3pm…

Well, what can we tells ya? It was hardly a stately amble… 

Taking off from the blocks in Bega at post-work five, the Gang made it (just) to Nic Folland’s exhibition at CCAS in the ‘Berra, caught the sparrow’s fart to Melbs to see Ian on the Saturday, swung across to Adelaide on the Sunday for an audience with the Debster (Leader of the Free Glass World) and Tom and Nic (who had also by now returned to Adders), and then finally flew back – via Sydders – to the ‘Berra on the Tuesday where we caught up with the accountant (yeah, yeah, we hadn’t got around to our tax yet) before driving back to god’s-own-country on the eff-ess-coast-a-NSW. Totally relaxing, it was. We must be mad.

But we did manage a few quality moments (and some xmas shopping in the various airport choccy shops.)

Here’s yet another shot of Nic’s installation at CCAS (this time taken by us)…

..and of course we caught up with lots of lovely peeps…

…and even another Grad show, this time at UniSA…

(above) Cherie Redwood, Veil-d (study), pastels and graphite.

For a quick flick around the (random) same, go here.

media release and invitation

In my anecdotal marriage, byrd presents a new body of work in contrast to the transient nature of his street art. Crafted from old socks and cultural detritius he makes waste wanted and the potentially abject desirable. These tactile soft characters form a personal diary of ideas where the artist explores independence of character and the versatility of the handled object.

to arrange an appointment to view, please contact the gallery via the website
