Mars Drum-Beyond the Burka

This show is rather interesting,
The Burka is a piece of fabric worn to protect women from men, and the artist, Mars Drum has painted here some very interesting situations and issues surrounding this modern controversy on an ancient tradition.

Lars Sternberg: 'Walking the Lanes' @ Space22

This is one show that impressed me. You can see the love of bushwalking. Lars has done it well. Loved it.

Scope2011 @ Post Office Gallery

Scope2011 at the university of Ballarat's gallery had some nice paintings I liked, especially the landscapes and the scuptures. Otherwise the show did not really impress me.

Hindsight @ Red Brick Gallery

This month's exhibition had some impressive paintings such as the two below.

The upstairs main gallery is small but adequate enough to show of the paintings

The gallery courtyard at the back of the gallery's emporium is wonderful, beautiful gardens and seats. The gallery has come a long way with its emporium chocablok with art works.

I am delighted to have met the co-owner Steph. She is a very nice person and they run a good gallery, another of the wonderful art scene in Ballarat.

Testing out the Rose Street Artists Market in Fitzroy, sold two paintings. Good prospect here. Lots of wares of all sorts from original designed jewelry to graphic designed tees, some paintings stalls. Good day spend talking to artists and customers.
