From Tevita…

30 06 2012

Tevita’s been getting jiggy with some experimental new work: mucking around (to quote him) with some glass, wood, alcohol and pig’s hearts [sounds like a party at the Hideout! n(Ed)]…

 

 

Needless to say we think that all 1.5 x 3.5 metres of it is utterly fabulous.

Gotta love that Tongan spear action.





Tom does the Gong…

26 06 2012

Officially launched this week (installed late last year) at Wollongong University, the latest Manifestation da Moore…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jeez Louise, hard to pick a favourite. Maybe the four-legged spikey kingfisher (great canes)…

We loves ya, Tom.





Opening tomorrow…

Contemporary glass loves light, now there’s a concept!!

16 06 2012

Thanks to Nige for a link to the announcement of the new Corning expansion

 

 

We particularly like this quotation…”Contemporary glass loves light, especially natural light, and space,” said Tina Oldknow, the Museum’s curator of modern glass. “The new daylighting system represents a dramatic change in how contemporary works in glass are viewed, and the Museum’s monumental sculptures will have an exhibition space appropriate to their size. This is the first large-scale presentation of contemporary glass that takes advantage of natural light.”

Wagga Wagga was a pre-curser wethinks.

And before you all start carrying on about the (bleeding obvious) difference in scale, just keep in mind it’s not always about size.

Enterprising country folk…

…at the fortnightly producer’s market in Bega…

 

They sell like hot cakes apparently. Who’d’ve thunk?





The Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award 2012…

7 06 2012

So sorry darls, but there’s no way we are going to have time to process all the snaps from the Shirley Hannan opening until after we put our grant to bed (it’s down to the wire, you know what it’s like…)

But we’re finding the fact that we’ve not posted anything soooo excruciating that we’re going to be slack and at least put up the newsy bits, in case you’ve missed it…

…and the winner is…

 

 

…Neil Moore’s Portrait of Claudio, oil on panel. Fabulous.

For the final field go here.

And the media release is hereand hereand here.

We’ll bring culture mulcher mug shots of all the opening excitements as soon as we can manage.
