So much to see

The TarraWarra Biennale 2008 is currently on in Healsville, Victoria. It's titled Lost & Found: An Archeology of the Present and it's on until 9th November. The exhibition features 21 of Australia & New Zealand artists who have reinvented traditional techniques "evoking historical forms, mythologies and folklores." I know I have two trips to Melbourne planned before the closure of this exhibition and I'm hoping to make it there on a least one of those trips. I love the Tarrawarra Gallery. the space is just stunning... even without the artwork.

Yesterday I discovered the work of Takashi Iwasaki , via Miss Woolly's blog. I think my favorites are the embroidery and the collage. The vibrancy in all of the work definitely evokes a sense of playfulness which totally appeals to me. Thanks Miss Woolly!

This weekend in Sydney the College of Fine Arts will be transformed into a carnival of creativity for the COFA Spring Fair. There will be all sorts of fun, including free workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions to see. It's on from 10-4pm and I can't wait.

Hi Miss Bellsey,
