JANUARY IS ALMOST OVER, SO LET'S GET STARTED


It's almost February, so I've decided to up the ante with tips for five exhibitions, five galleries and five books to get your creative juices flowing and get you started for the year.

After a long rejuvenating Chrissy and New Year's break, the first thing I do is set my goals for the year and plan what to do, look out for and read. I may not get around to doing all of these, but I sure like to 'plan' to do them. It's the first step towards staying on top of things for the year. That is before it all unravels and the year turns into complete over-worked chaos. This year I plan on things being different!

So with that in mind, I thought I'd share some things that I think are FABULOUS and that people are sure to like if they saw, visited or read:

FIVE SHOWS TO GO TO

Second Nature: Solo Exhibition by Julie Blyfield at Funaki

The Sixth: An exhibition at West Space curated by Christina Hayes and Kirsten Turner

Sampler: A tapestry exhibition by Mardi Nowak of female pop stars - can't help but love Kylie!

Debris Slide: New work by Brad Rusbridge @ Seventh, Workers Window

Walking the Line: Recent work by Arts Project Australia artists, curated by Melissa Petty

FIVE GALLERIES TO KEEP AN EYE ON

Funaki: Jewellery by the best of the best

Craft: Craft by the best of the best

Lucy Folk: Very talented jeweller, with great ideas

Gallerie Ra: One of the top international contemporary jewellery galleries

West Space: 20th anniversary year and a great exhibition space

FIVE BOOKS TO GET YOU GOING (RECENT & NOT SO RECENT)

The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp: Sets you on the right creative path - have before but can't go past

What Falls Away by Mia Farrow: Gets you thinking and dreaming - love Mia's rhythmic writing

Eat Mangoes Naked by SARK: Nourishes the soul, even though the techno-coloured presentation is hard to look at

A is for apple by Alan Saunders: Meditations on food and drink - a quick witty read

Just Kids a memoir by Patti Smith - just loved this book and the snapshot into Manhattan in the 1970s

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I create and exhibit art. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. I acknowledge that I work and live country on which Members and Elders of The Wurundjeri people and their forebears have been custodians for many centuries and on which Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. I acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
