Art Trail recommended for Saturday 2 June 2012
Pop-Up Publicity June Arts Newsletter out next week!
It’s a little overcast in Sydney with lots of rain predicted for tomorrow and Monday, so a great day to get on your bike, get on a bus, pop on your walking shoes (or take the car).
Have fun. These suggestions are better late than never as they say. The rain has started a little early so just take a brolly and get out there! Enjoy. Cassie French 0416 209 391
Last weeks of ‘The Bright, the Bold & the Beautiful‘ www.cooeeart.com.au
at Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery 31 Lamrock Avenue (cnr Chambers), Bondi.
Tue – Sat 10 – 5pm
Splashes, splotches, swathes, dashes (and a few dots) of colour by contemporary Aboriginal female artists.
Large canvases over two floors – absolutely gorgeous & not to miss!
(For a coffee & book browse I always love Gertrude & Alice in Hall Street but plenty of great cafes in Bondi now).
Then to Surry Hills & Redfern…
Visit in any order but not to miss are two of my favourite Sydney Markets.
The Surry Hills Market (1st Saturday of every month)
Today 7 – 4pm Cnr Crown & Foveaux Streets – in Shannon Reserve.
Great for second-hand clothes, books, shoes, bric-a-brac, vintage, or just browsing!
The Finders Keepers Markets 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh
Today 10 – 5pm
Here you will find the best in hand made design – clothing, stationery, toys, jewellery, artwork – and
live music. A real buzz of creativity fills this lovely space. You might even catch the food markets.
After replenishing and feeling robust the aim is to now head down to Circular Quay.
Once again, no order, but your focus is on Customs House & MCA.
CUSTOMS HOUSE hosts THREE superb photographic exhibitions that will absorb you for some time.
You will want an hour or so. The library levels close at 4pm on Sat & Sun, 7pm through the week.
The ground floor stays open until midnight!

Over three floors make sure you catch –
Alexia Sinclair ‘Homage’ on the Ground Floor. www.alexiasinclair.com
Peter Elfes ‘The Green Desert’ Level 1 www.peterelfesphotography.com
Jagath Dheerasekara ‘Manuwangku. Under the Nuclear Cloud’ Level 2 www.jd.photoshelter.com
Catch the entertaining ‘Dachshund United Nations’ setup by Bennett Miller.
47 Dachshund’s representing UN delegates will somehow debate their role as a risk management organisation.
Sounds chaotic and highly entertaining. Apologies now to all those dachshund lovers out there, but they are just not my favourite dog –
often way to pampered and territorial. But I think their personalities will prove perfect in their starring roles today.
Then to finish off the day stay around the harbour’s edge for the Vivid Lights which start at 6pm – what a great way to keep you out of the house!
Recommended for a late afternoon aperitif or evening soiree, my favourite haunts around here are the Bar at the End of the Wharf at Sydney Theatre Company;
the new MCA cafe; or for more lively venues I would say the Opera Bar or (the best) The Hero of Waterloo.
