She Wanted Flowers
by Joelie Croser & Lisa Losada
There's a little place, with a little bar, with little toys, and some little quirks you get for free. That place is the Grace, and this month it comes alive with flowers. Well she wanted flowers, but instead she got a whole mish mash of wonderful art. I hope she's happy? I hear she's hard to please?!
Perhaps you should judge for yourself.
Where: The Grace Emily,
232 Waymouth Street
When: August 12th - 31st.
Alice Potter & Jess Dare
at A Room of Her Own
To coincide with the coming of spring, Alice Potter and Jess Dare will bring their botanically themed trinkets to A Room of Her Own.
Since graduating from the Adelaide Centre for the Arts in 2006, the girls have worked as fellows at the celebrated Gray Street Workshop. While Alice and Jess share a love of colour, their jewellery varies stylistically: Alice combines laminex, found materials and sterling sliver to create thoughtful, yet pretty pieces; Jess uses traditional lampworking techniques to create small glass objects that recently, have evolved into figures akin to comic book characters.
Their upcoming exhibition is an ode to all things horticultural- bees, pink dusk clouds, ducks and lovebirds will flit and float through the gallery during the month of September.
Gardens Alive launches at A Room of Her Own on Saturday, September 6th from 6-8 pm.
Where: A Room of Her Own,
5 Elizabeth St (Queen St precinct), Croydon
When I first started noticing the beauty of photographs I think it was the moment, frozen in time that really caught my imagination.
But what happens when you push some of those still images into life with some cleaver time lapse trickery and stop motion?
The answer awaits you at the Queens theatre this month with the exhibition of dance artist Billie Cook & photographer Sam Oster.
Together they explore the boundaries of 2D imagery through their compression of space, time and gravity.
Where: Queens Theatre, corner of Playhouse Lane & Gilles Street
When: Tues-Fri 11-6pm, Sat-Sun 10-4pm
Adelaide the movie
There are two talented young guys I know who are going to be famous one day. Right now they're two film hacks, but they're making waves in the big pool little films.
Their latest endevour is a film called 'Adelaide'. Its the first feature length movie they've attempted, but I've got a feeling they might just pull off something a bit special.
Want to see what they've shot so far? We think you might recognise some of the sights.
