Japanese Story has been hung and will be on till 22nd December at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. The following are some views of the exhibition.

The exhibition is by 4 artists: Michael Le Grand (sculpture in the centre), Lois Johnson (wood block prints to the right), Nicola Moss (paintings to the right) and myself (textiles at far end).

 

While I was away I took the opportunity to check out some exhibitions in both Canberra and Sydney.

In the National Museum of Australia, Canberra there is a wonderful exhibition: Yiwarra Kuju,  The Canning Stock Route. It is predominately a response by aboriginal artists to both the site and its history. In addition there are also some photographs and memorabilia on the history of the route. http://www.nma.gov.au

Ballets Russes is on in The National Art Gallery till 20th March. There are some very interesting costumes on display from many of the ballets performed by this company. In the National Art Gallery are also some Asian textiles currently hanging in that themed gallery space.  www.nga.gov.au

Art + Soul is on at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It is the exhibition that runs in conjunction with the 3 part series that was recently shown on ABC TV. The book and DVD are also available. http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au
