MY YEAR AS A FAIRYTALE - NSW ARTIST DRESSES AS MARIE ANTOINETTE IN YEAR LONG PERFORMANCE.

BY Lili Nishiyama - Pozible | 09-Mar-2017
Performance artist and writer Helen Hopcroft will be dressing in full 18th century costume from May 2017 for an entire year as she goes about her daily life in Maitland NSW. While Maitland was once the second largest city in NSW, many small businesses in the CBD struggle with the lack of foot traffic, while other commercial premises remain vacant. Hopcroft strongly believes that regional economies benefit greatly from an active arts sector. One of Hopcroft’s longterm plans is to use this performance- of a historical figure engaging with contemporary life- to lobby for the construction of a museum in Central Maitland. @despardgallery @pozible #pozible

Barbara Ryman - Fragment

BY Stanley Street Gallery | 04-Mar-2017
Breathtakingly beautiful work by Australian Master enamelist Barbara Ryman. Fragmenting mind, fragmenting world, fragmenting society, fragments of memory, disintegration, integration and nostalgia. Can what is broken be mended? Can it be transformed? These are the somewhat disordered thoughts running behind the production of this series of pendants; how apt! They arise from watching the current politics, global warming dramas and my own longing for a simpler past and future.
