Now there’s an exhibition worth travelling to.

For a little background muzak on Masa go here.





Moje Milestone…

26 09 2011

Klausie’s about to mark yet another significant milestone in his long and illustrious career by celebrating his 75th birthday with (as one might expect) an exhibition and masterclass setting his signature tone.

Last Friday the Gang and BVSC Mayor Tony Allen were given a preview by the Maestro himself, just prior to the work being shipped off to Canberra…

The exhibition opens this coming Wednesday evening at the Glassworks in Kingston.

Old news…

3 05 2010

We didn’t make it to the Powerhouse exhibition at the Canberra Glassworks, which from one point of view was a bummer ‘cos some of our fave dudes were in it (Trish Roan, Nicholas Folland and Geoff Farquhar-Still) – but late as it is, we’ve got the next best thing; Yolande’s review.

A little late in the day, we agree. But we have been serially distracted…

Wazza gets the tower – but no surprises there…

14 05 2009

The tender for the ‘smokestack’ at the Canberra Glassworks has finally been announced, and the winner is…(drumroll)…Warren Langley!! Jon Stanhope could have saved all the money, time and hoo-hah by just giving it to Wazza in the first place, we reckon. He was always the shoe-in, let’s face it. And deservedly so. After all, from the Aussie contemporary/studio glass historic perspective alone, he is the most eminently appropriate/experienced in the genre.

Thanks Nige, for pointing us to the ACT Gubba-ment’s NewsWire…

As for the other short-listings, gawd save us from the artchitects, darlings!

And speaking of public art in the ACT, check out the Gateway debacle on ArtWranglers. Perhaps it’s time to start sharpening your quills, my friends…
