Pop-Up Publicity October Arts Newsletter. Witty wordpoems, sculpture, secret Sydney spaces, weaving workshops, food as art and Paris!

Pop-Up October Arts Newsletter. Some days its sunny and some days it snows – that seems to be Spring in Sydney so far and it has been wonderful. The first of the Jacaranda blossoms are starting to burst and soon the city will be awash with their beautiful blue. Plenty of lovely shows to check out and more for the diary! Wordsmith Richard Tipping will entertain you in Redfern at Sandy Edwards new photomedia space; Sydney reveals a few hidden treasures in Hyde Park; stunning contemporary Aboriginal sculpture to draw you back from the Bondi sculpture walk to one of my favourite galleries (a great place to start or finish your day); a nostalgic trip to Paris is highly recommended and good shows for your arts diary for November.

Until 20 October

Historic Chinese Market Gardens, Matraville. Cassandra French

This is my photo (above), amongst the 22 finalists in this years show. These gardens deserve heritage protection and should be preserved. I love they are only 12km from the CBD – another reason for protection from the neighbouring cemetery, wanting over 60% of the land to extend
(a trip to these Chinese Gardens in Matraville is well worth it – they are like a trip to another world)
Also, would anyone like my photograph – it would look good in a garden or cafe? 3mx2m on vinyl.

Vegetables you could almost eat from the canvas and food you could almost pluck from the paper – they make me hungry just looking! There may not be enough paintings from Forth or photographs from Neiser to satisfy a hungry audience.
These two fine Artists are planning a sellout show for a very worthy cause.

Old Paris. Eugene Atget

Left to right: Eugène Atget Marchard d’abat jour, rue Lepic 1899-1900, albumen photograph; Boulevard de Strasbourg 1912, albumen photograph; Rue Hautefeuille, 6th arrondissement 1898, albumen photograph

I am sure everyone knows about this show, but who has visited?
If you love history, Paris, b&w photography, stories and beautiful imagery, don’t miss it.
I loved this exhibition for many reasons.  To see old Paris and note how much of it was demolished to create the lovely wide boulevards we all love about Paris today.  Also, to see the people, the streets, the architecture and the working people of Paris at the time Atget photographed it all.  Also to know that Man Ray bought an extensive collection of these wonderful images and many are from Man Ray’s personal collection.  Plus, to see these original and rare contact prints from a masterful documentary photographer.  Nostalgic, romantic, fascinating, intriguing and beautifully composed photographs.  My only suggestion would be to take a magnifying glass to view the details that much better!
