Welcome to Winter, time to pull up a chair by the fireside and keep toasty and warm. Speaking of warm, we are on a little bit of a winter tour hiatus until November, when we return to the best art resort in the southern hemisphere â€“ MONA. Though I donâ€™t stop thinking, planning and getting out and about. In June I spent an afternoon wandering Christchurch's street art projects. This month I will be in sunny Portland, Oregon for a few days and am looking forward to checking out the city, its museums and galleries, followed by a pre tour reconnoitre to Japan, including a visit to Naoshima Island.
In May Sue Gardner spent a long weekend in Brisbane and Canberra. Both the James Turrell show and Michael Parekowhai exhibition were fantastic. It was great to discover some interesting art in both cities. We visited the Milani Gallery in Brisbane and met Gallerist Josh and artist Ross Manning. In Canberra we spent a day visiting galleries and artist spaces and studios. There were some great connections made in both cities. It was really rewarding to find very interesting people and engaging art outside of Sydney and Melbourne.
We have updated our website - I hope you like its more contemporary look.
Thanks and see you on tour.
