Melbourne was alive on Thursday night, as is most nights of the week in Melbourne. On my way from an opening at Edmund Pearce Gallery to see some great glass art in the opening of Kirra Galleries– I was stopped in my tracks at the presence of the stunning Helix tree in Fed Square. In the atrium outside, the entrance to Kirra-hordes of people were indulging in wine tasting- and upon leaving, stumbling upon the charming oddity of the upright piano that anyone can have a tinkle on-(a few guys were happily obliging) was a lovely sight. These are the lovely goings on as apart of Fed Square’s-Light in Winter program.
Three brilliant and vastly different photographers are on show now at Edmund Pearce Nicholson Street Building.
The one that really left an impression was Lee Grant’s-“Belco Pride”-A photo Essay of the residents of Belconnen, a district of Canberra.
There is an Artist talk and book signing at the gallery-June 15 at 2pm.
