Debbie Hill @Postoffice Gallery

Helamen says today we went to see Debbie Hill and Duncan Lanne's exhibition at the Postoffice Gallery at the University of Ballarat. I did not appreciate Debbie's paintings until she explains that they were social comments on "what happens when we go to bed", the things that we don't see in our world here in Oz, all happening overnight in the other hemisphere. Hence the green paintings of dolls and toy soldiers on a black background. I still think that they are a bit too dark for my liking.

Also, black velvet is in vogue again.

Casey Tosh installation

Helamen said, "We went to see Casey Tosh exhibition, I did not not like it and I think it lacks continuity, although the painting of Nick Cave was notable. However it looked too much like a caricature. "

Summer in the City

Dawn has been fortunate to be the art teacher for a revitalising effort of the City of Ballarat in its Summer in the City activities for anyone interested. So the year has started off very well for Dawn. She has also started back on her regular private art tuition classes.

Today has been a washout with the rain in Ballarat, but it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the students, they held a class at the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery.
