ArtsRush Magazine

This online magazine explores  the Arts from all over, although it’s epicentre is the South Coast of NSW. Turns out they’ve been around since 1997. It’s  a new discovery for me,  and worth bookmarking….not least because my name is in the current edition.

The website is fantastic. Apart from a virtual tour of the whole show, each winner is featured with an audio track telling the story of their artwork. Check out the

28th Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award here.

Mosman Art Prize Opening Night

Every man and his art-loving dog was at the Opening on Friday night. Always good to mingle with the Beautiful People…and yes, Kerrie Lester’s prize-winning painting was terrific.  It had a real rhythm to it,  I thought.  Here tis:

See more of Kerrie’s work here. I also had a lot of time for Guy Maestri’s piece, Robertson # 5 which was Highly Commended…. some of Guy’s Robertson paintings here.

I discovered Mostyn Bramley-Moore that evening. I recognised his name but his image at the show was a corker:

More of Bramley-Moore’s work here. He is one to watch, I really aspire to master my palette as he has done.
