A good arty month ahead about town in Sydney and interstate, plus cherry blossoms and jasmine about to burst open and welcome in the spring…

Hi Everyone. I’ve been away overseas for a bit – in Italy in the north from Milan to Edolo via Lake Como, Bolzano, the Dolomites (Colfosco, Corvara), Sirmione on Lake Garda, Lake Iseo (we just missed the full Christo Floating Piers installation but did see some of the pontoons still in place), Bergamo (UNESCO listed old cite) and back again to Milan. A train ride to Geneva, an overnight stay and then a few weeks driving south through France heading to the Pyrenees. Beginning at beautiful Lake Annecy for a couple of days – about an hour or so from the Swiss border – we then drove to Narbonne, Carcossone, Mirepoix, Foix, Luz St. Sauveur – it was here we observed the Bastille Day events of this small lovely village and heard the tragic news of Nice. A tour back north through Lourdes, Bordeaux, St. Emilion, Amboise, Chancay in the Loire Valley (a good base for exploring the region), Tours, Le Mans, Chartres, overnight in Versailles before a final weekend in Paris and the finale of the Tour de France. A few days in steamy hot Hong Kong before arriving home to a perfect clear blue sky chilly 9 degrees Sydney. Now back to work of course. It’s a busy arty month ahead with fab shows and events across town and interstate, so I hope you find some good ideas here. Until next month. Cassie

Photographer Michael Haylen changes the way we look at the natural world. He says, It’s more about the way the eye reads an everyday subject when it is blown-up and depicted large…you get the sense that it’s not really the object that matters in the end. Form, light, texture and soft muted colour all play a part in these curious and lovely observations of our world.
