ALL SMALL THINGS Exhibition

Thursday 21 June - Sunday 22 July
Official Opening Sat 23 June 2pm
Community Technology Centre Gallery Hoddle St Robertson
E. jmwaterlow@gmail.com

WHAT IS ALL THE 'FUSS' ABOUT 'SMALL' ARTWORKS?
Magnifying glass, good eyesight, or simply clever story telling and amazing detail which draws you into a small canvas, piece of paper or compact 3d object. It is a fact that ‘small’ does not mean ‘easier’. Keeping within the boundaries of 120cm sq, (or even smaller for miniature work), is challenging! It tests an artists’ focus, technique, time and patience. The rewards can be ‘great’ and you, as a viewer attending, will be greatly rewarded.
All artworks for sale, the ‘fussiest’ part will be making a choice between a variety of techniques, styles, mediums and subject matter.
All welcome so you can chat with the artists while sharing a glass of wine and nibbles. Featuring artists from the annual “All Things Great Are Small’ in Bowral.
Hours: Thursday, Friday, Saturday : 10am - 4pm Sundays10am - 2pm

Drawing to Remember - Carol Willis

Thursday 21 - Tuesday 26 June
10am - 4pm daily
Bowral Art Gallery, 1 Short Street, Bowral NSW 2576
E. office@bdasgallery.com

Carol Willis invites you to her solo show “Drawing to Remember - Rosemary for Remembrance” at the Bowral Art Gallery, 1 Short Street, Bowral.

The exhibition will feature Drawings, Silversmithing, Printmaking and Paintings by Carol, who has a long established art-making practice. She has previously exhibited in Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, The Australian National Gallery and also here in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

Carol talks about artmaking in the following way:-

“Drawings are simple, mostly linear, paring down of moments in time. Few things in this world are static. Life’s only constant is change. Silversmithing is a joy - making malleable a metal, seeing its molten form is sumptuous. The result is sculptural and wearable. Printmaking is serendipitous, despite all efforts, the print has a life of its own. Painting is purely of image - the intentional and unintentional marks made.”

On Friday 22 June from 6.30pm, Carol

Charles Sings in Bundanoon

E. lyndell.g123@yahoo.com.au

Charles Jenkins, an accomplished singer-songwriter with 30 years experience on the stage is coming to Bundanoon. If you haven't heard of Charles, here is a partial review of the man, his latest album and his remarkable skills...

"Charles Jenkins’ best songs are vaguely conceptual, adopting the vernacular of a romantic poet, a bushranger, an urban troubadour, a rock star, a father, a lover — but are driven by the voice of perfectly ordinary bloke-dom, looking on helplessly as humanity unzips all around — an everyman with the distinguishing gift of otherness. His rich vocals here are both his most tender and most insistent, the tempos hover between a swagger, a strut and a clip".

Joe Penhall – playwright, screenwriter and Olivier Award winning writer of Sunny Afternoon: The Kinks Musical London 2017

Maria Raspopova at The Rose Room

Sunday 24th of June
3pm
The Rose Room, 51F Sunninghill Avenue, Burradoo
E. stephen@omegaensemble.com.au

Omega Ensemble's Co-Artistic Director and pianist Maria Raspopova performs in the most intimate of chamber music settings: as solo pianist.

In this concert, the first in a series of two, Maria takes the audience on a journey of vastly contrasting sound-worlds. Commencing with the charming and elegant French Suite IV in E flat major by Bach, our feet are firmly planted in the 18th century. In stark contrast, Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives, a collection of whimsical musical vignettes are at once dissonant, pleasant, effervescent and bright, almost Debussy-like.

The program also includes the virtuosic and highly energetic Tarantella from Annees De Pelerinage II by Franz Liszt, Mendelssohn’s delicate and scurrying Rondo Capriccioso Op.14, alongside two of Chopin’s challenging and evocative Etudes, and his dramatic Nocturne Op. 15 No. 1.

Cheesemaking Workshop Mozzarella Cultured Butter Yoghurt

Saturday 14th of July
10am-4pm
95 Clemens Road, Woodlands, Mittagong 2575
E. lucynias@hotmail.com

Mozzarella is a cheese we take terribly for granted. It has a very mild flavour and can easily be over-applied to pizzas and lasagna. But its soul soars higher than that! Mozzarella in both its dry (grateable) and wet (Bocconcini) incarnations is made in much the same way. The curds are worked into a highly elastic state by stretching and knotting them while very hot. It’s a real art. This is not a workshop for the faint hearted, but it is incredibly good fun, and to be able to slice your own Bocconcini and home-grown tomatoes and basil onto fresh bread, is true happiness. Workshops run from 10-4, cost $150 per person and include all equipment, ingredients and a light lunch of homegrown, homemade food from our beautiful farm.
