May/June Autumn arts…
Hi everyone.
Sydney is about to launch into a big art month and another to follow. The Sydney Writers Festival has started and I am volunteering this year, resplendent in yellow festival tshirt around Carriageworks over the next few days, so say hi if you spot me. And Head On Photo Festival kicks off right there in the middle of it all, making it quite hard to get to both, with the launch Friday night 03 May at COFA in Darlinghurst and the announcement of competition winners. It’s always a buzz of a party. A few highlights I love are below, but also check out Luke Hardy, Lisa Tomasetti, Paul Blackmore – just a couple of other shows to keep an eye on. Best start at the Festival Hub in Paddington Town Hall, head to the Reservoir across the road and grab a program, as this Festival is huge – now branching more widely to regional galleries. And when these two festivals are done, they are followed by Vivid and the Sydney Film Festival. By July you will be looking for a warm place to be and a good book. And my most recent favourite personal memoir has been Rick Morton, One Hundred Years of Dirt. I met him today at the Festival and wanted to give him a big hug – and his mum. She is the hero in the story – and all the women like her. So happy reading and gallery hopping and movie watching and walking… until next time. Cassie
