Dance Me to the End of Time

These are the final images that I entered in the 69 Smith St photography show called Fingerprints  based on the lyrics of Leonard Cohen.
Details of the show in my previous blog post.

Fingerprints - Photography exhibition

Last Saturday June 16th, the 69 Smith St Photography group show opened. The theme was the songs of Leonard Cohen. People chose to interpret the theme in imaginative and interesting ways.
It is on until July 1st.
Here is the invitation.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday 11- 5pm.

June - winter has arrived

It is cold and dull with some bursts of sun. But the mornings are very cold.
Trees at NMIT are looking as though they are shivering.

Exhibition at James Makin Gallery

Last night I went to the opening of two exhibitions at James Makin Gallery in Cambridge St Collingwood.

The two artists were Wayne Viney whose monoprints and oil on board are a huge inspiration.
I loved his series  Southern Ocean which he says is "about the sea and the sky and the exploration of colour."
They are strong and delicate; they rally do transport the viewer.

 Jenny Rodgerson's works which shows  people alone in interior settings are evocative and sensitive. A great feeling of introspection.

The exhibition is on until 23rd June - definitely worth a visit.
