Pop-Up Publicity February Arts Newsletter 2012

Well it’s about time I got the 2012 ball rolling…January whizzed by in a whirl of new year resolutions, school holidays and press releases. February delivers with a new gallery opening at Danks Street; an impressive exhibition of photographs over two venues of Lake Eyre and the desert of Western NSW; and some recommendations to keep you busy until March.  All Free!  Best of wishes.

Gallery to Discover…
Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery in Bondi
Cnr Lamrock Ave & Chambers Street

Everyone should discover this gem of a gallery.  Nestled amongst paperbarks and gum trees, a few blocks back from Bondi Beach, this is a beautiful space to visit, to discover and to buy genuine artworks and artefacts.  All works come with a signed statement of authenticity.  Coo-ee is not only the oldest aboriginal art gallery in Australia, it is one of the leading aboriginal art galleries in the country. Forged with deep knowledge, connection and respect for its artists and artworks, I highly recommend a visit to Coo-ee. I love this place – a beachside bungalow gallery right in the heart of Bondi.
