We will be spending our second Easter at Rainbow Gallery and it looks like it is going to be a busy weekend. As we remember our Saviour this Easter, we pray everyone will be safe on the roads as the mad rush to get out of the city begins next weekend.
Starting from Sunday we went to the Geelong Gallery to see the Fletcher Jones 2010 $30,000.00 art prize. The winner was a piece that we didn’t like. It had a Jaba like person (as in Star Wars movie) on a rock which was greyish in colour and reminded me of the American Hollywood influence from the movie. Aweful. Some of the other acquired pieces were much better art than this I thought.
Then today we went to Space 22 to see “the weather project”, there was a really interesting installation of Erin McCuskey and Emma Stoneman.
Then we went to see the art students’ exhibition at the Post Office Gallery of the University of Ballarat.
We saw Carolyn’s altered book.
This piece reminded me of the book art of years past that was quite a favourite with craft hobbists.
