LIZ STRINGER'S BIG TUESDAY STRING-A-LONG

BY Danae Effern | 02-May-2017
Featuring Dr Lou Bennett, Deborah Conway, Neil Murray & Mick Thomas. Melbourne’s Liz Stringer will be spending the entire month of June in her home-town before heading back to Canada and the States for the northern summer in early July. As her career takes her ever further-afield, Stringer has found herself reflecting on the schooling she’s received in Australia as a songwriter and performer and particularly the influence of the people she worked with early on, who have helped to teach and shape her as an artist. She’s asked four of her songwriting elders to sit down with her at the Gasometer, over Tuesdays in June, to have a conversation about their relationship with their art, the evolution of their careers and what continues to drive them. And to play some select tunes from their formidably impressive back-catalogues. #TheGasometerHotel @GasometerHotel @LizStringerAU #lizstringermusic

Highlighting Artist ~ KRISTINE BALLARD and her signature style "Fragmatism"

BY Mickie with ArtSHINE Gallery in Chippendale | 27-Apr-2017
WHAT IS FRAGMATISM? (frag • ma • tism) (Quoted the artist Kristine Ballard for the best definition below) “An artistic style based on the concept that our perceptions are often a compilation of reality and experience. What we remember is a morphed idea of the truth. Images disintegrate and fragment on the picture plane. Objects decompose and merge into one another. Colour combinations are restricted, to create an emotive response. An amalgamated approach derived from the cubists deconstruction process, the orphic explorations of the Fauves and the Nabi’s endeavour to synthesise nature and aesthetics. This practice aims to capture mood through heightened sensations of form and colour." ~ KRISTINE BALLARD #artshinegallery #fragmatism #artshineindustries

Indigenous Entrepreneurs - Injalak Ethical Art Thongs

BY Pozible | 26-Apr-2017
The coolest, hottest, most ethical thongs in Australia. Would you like to wear cool clothing and footwear with Aboriginal designs but worry about the ethics? Stop fretting and get organised to support our campaign to produce some uber-cool ethical thongs (flip-flops to you internationals). Be stylish, comfortable and have peace of mind knowing that you're doing two things at once: supporting Injalak Arts' Aboriginal artists and also Australia's most ethical social enterprise, Etiko. Three great designs to choose from. Becoming a supporter of this campaign - whether by ordering thongs or taking up another reward - will give us the necessary cash to pay the producers to make the first ever batch of these fair trade thongs specially for us + royalties for the artists. If we are not successful we can't order the thongs to be made. More information about costs of production in 'how the funds will be used' below. PS: The artists have no issue with the designs being on thongs - in fact they're thrilled.

BY Christo Warner | 26-Apr-2017
This is experimental, as all once was. Thursday 27th @ BRUNSWICK STREET GALLERY 7:30pm-9:30. An open melting-pot showcase of improvised jams.

In the name of art, poetry, music and the yet unknown the project was sewn. This is now Stage 4/4, the culmination of the progressive “What Washes UP” project running across the last two weeks. First performed solo for contrast @ BSG. Then invited the public to participate and held two jams @ In.cube8r Gallery. Much video of the performances awaits upload! C: And now, COME. Throw your inhibitions to the wind, invite your friends, and watch or play your musical tools as we seek an imperfect symbiosis.
