July Pop-Up Arts Newsletter better late than never as they say. Another month of great photography showing around the country. Here are some suggestions and highlights to enrapture and capture. A wonderful Opening in Brisbane at the QCP last Saturday saw 6 shows opening on the same night – I have picked out my top three below. For the next couple of weeks you can: travel by train across India; be seduced by sirens; enjoy celebrities known & unkown; take a stance against nuclear waste dumps in your backyard (or someone else’s); gaze on freckled male beauty; witness the strangeness of made environments; and book in for a Drawing Sketchbook Tour of the Blue Mountains. Until August… Cassie 0416 209 391

Draw on the Mountain. Wild Valley Art Park, Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains, NSW
Take the self-drive tour to iconic and secret Blue Mountains locations (or take the weekend bus). Book in for workshops and drawing classes, or just buy a Sketchbook and grab your pencils, paints or pastels. For all ages and all skill levels. This is a program to engage you with the pristine beauty of the Blue Mountains and surrounding towns. Wild Valley Art Park is open free every Saturday and Sunday. Highly recommending discovering this beautiful gem of eco-art friendly buildings, artist studios, gallery and sculpture park. I loved my first visit and looking forward to heading back.
