November has already proved a very social month for me with visitors to town, especially my 82 year old dad who did the 15 hour train trip from Brisbane to Sydney and back again one week later – and he loved it! Opening in Melbourne this month is Vedat Acikalin’s exhibition now visiting its 4th big Aussie city. There is plenty of exhibition colour happening in Sydney too – matching the colour of spring bursting out all over town. Does anyone else think the jacarandas are the bluest ever?
Until next month, enjoy this one… Cassie

Now onto the 4th city of this national 5 city tour – if you are in Melbourne or surrounds, then be sure to put this on your November ‘to visit’ list. A most poignant, engaging and emotional collection of photographs taken over the last 30 years. Featuring in the Melbourne show are 8 veterans from Victoria and their families. I was lucky to be in Melbourne for the Opening – what a night. Magnet Galleries, 640-650 Bourke Street, Melbourne CBD www.magnet.org.au http://www.vedatacikalin.com
