Banyule Works on Paper a good read

Visited the Banyule Award for Works on Paper yesterday, whilst in the Arts Capital of our great Nation. It was hanging in the recently spruced- up Banyule Arts Space in Ivanhoe, a magnifent art-deco style building, wheelchair accessible and shining.

The show itself offers a modest purse of $4000, but ┬áit was stunning. It was every bit as satisfying to look at as the Hazelhurst Award from earlier this year, (which now seems a little bloated in comparison.) There were many familiar faces there – Suzanne Archer; Angela Cavalieri; Tony Ameneiro. It was great to finally see a work by Jazmina Cininas in the flesh:
