Destination Manly, my longtime artist friend Barbara Cuckson suggested we attend an exhibition at the Manly Art Gallery & Museum. To see the exhibition titled “Ku-Ring-Ga ph: Arts +Science >Project.” The bloody usual no close by parking. around and around the local streets nothing, but on the good side we were in a nice air-conditioned car, it was around 37 degrees out side, Wow, like being in India without all the senses being on fire, not forgetting the on the ground hassles. eventually a Greater power directed us to a local underground parking station….there is a parking God.
The Gallery perched on the southern end of Manly beach was very welcoming. especially the wonderful air-conditioning, Lisa Roberts was the artist’s work we were there to see. The exhibition is a project exploring connections between Art and Science, the outcome of twelve months investigating, experimenting and interrogating ideas and science resulting in a stunning multi level exhibition. something for every one here, installation after installation. I especially loved Joshua Yeldham’s totem. and huge works on hand made Japanese paper, stunning, Lisa’s work’s very intimate, this stunning, beautiful exhibition is worthy of more exposure on the international scene, hoping this unfolds in the near future. the exhibition was curated by Susan Milne and Katherine Roberts.for more info on dates time etc go to magam.com.au or phone the Gallery on (02) 9976 1421.
