Advent + Adventure - sneak peek

Andrew Barker, Approach, 2012

My, my! Advent is nearly upon us and we're *almost* ready to start warming that mulled wine! There's some real gems in this exhibition and we're pleased with the way the lovely ladies of Situation Rhubarb have put it all together. It's a really diverse collection of work with some profound and challenging approaches to expectation, waiting and adventure.

Make sure you come down tomorrow evening to experience it in full and to see who made it to 'Best in Show' as well as have your ears caressed by the Alex Ross and the Sons of Encouragement. It's sure to be a real nice start to the weekend.

Invitation to Advent + Adventure

I know we've been harping on about this. But we wanted to officially invite you the exhibition preview for ADVENT + ADVENTURE, on FridayNovember 30, at 6:00pm, for which you can look forward to some great art, music, mulled-wine, and seasonal treats. Artists from all backgrounds have been invited to explore the Christmas season through themes of waiting, expectation, and preparation. This year's exhibition will be juried by Newcastle-based curators Sheila Gonzalez and Hannah Marsden of Situation Rhubarb

Submissions for the exhibition are due this Monday, November 19. We are accepting a wide range of work. Prizes will be given and Best in Show will have the opportunity to exhibit their own work, or to curate a show, in our gallery space. There are a range of additional prizes from local sponsors around the city so why not submit some work or encourage artists you know to do so.

You have the weekend to create something seasonally grand!

Silver & Gold

It's here! Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Volumes 6-10, Sufjan's followup to his 2006 5-EP compilation, Songs for Christmas. It all feels like forever ago and that's probably because I've listened to it every December for the last five or so years.

American friends, Sufjan's North American tour, "Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice," kicks off at the end of this month. If you can still snag tickets, why not take a chance and check it out?
