  1. Fabulous, just fabulous! I was really interested in Bronwyn Berman’s work shown here . . . thanks for taking the time to post these images for us poor people who live in far flung places and can’t get to see them.

    learned a lot just studying the pics–i feel so much more familiar with Australia now–after readying your blog for i don’t know how long. anyway, interesting to note the commonalities and differences. can see why you love it so.

      it’s such a beautiful city perched on ancient sandstone at the edge of the ocean, the spirits of place are strong when we just take the time to look

    What a great place for a great exhibition, Mo! So many favourites of course, but always wonderful to see Bronwyn’s work, and I do love the tribute to spectacles. Hoping to get to Newtown late next week, will be in touch.

    hi Mo

    I went yesterday with a friend. Loved the whole place. I grew up around there and used to climb out on that coal loader as a naughty child. It was so derelict and unloved for many years.
    I loved how they have revived and treasured the old relics of our past and have celebrated it with this delightful exhibition.
