Yes it’s the last weekend of the 2018 edition of the Head On Photography Festival and the Festival Hub up at Sydney’s Paddington Town Hall. Which also means its the last chance to see the exhibitions there and the Semi Finalists on the big screen – including me – or my portrait of Vivienne to be more precise. So you will want to check those shows out ASAP. www.headon.com.au/

Also closing this weekend is Set Fire To the Sea Sinead Kennedy’s The Pool Grant 2018 Exhibition at special group gallery 270 Devonshire street, Surry Hills. Very interesting show I was hoping to review but have not been back since the opening – fingers crossed to make it back tomorrow!
Street Fashion Sydney had a great time at William Yangs’s exhibition launch at Maunsell Wickes but that show is now down; perhaps there is some work in the stock room; great show, there is always something to learn from viewing William Yang’s work. Congratulations William.
There is still time to check out the fine art nudes show Tela Umana work by Lori Cicchini and Edmond Thommen at M2 Gallery near Central.
You can also check out Nudes On Tap this Saturday as they hand out the prizes – from 5PM apparently!
Ok seems I’m a day late with this one too, the most astonishingly beautiful show of all.. Samantha Everton, Indochine at Art House Gallery, if you are quick they may still have something in the stock room..
SO OK – ON NOW
Fresh figurative paintings by fresh young painters The Radical Familiar until the 26th so you need to hustle along to Piermarq Gallery

Tuesday night I thought I was simply attending the Bob Marchant show at Australian Galleries but it seems we were all crashing his 80th birthday too – congratulations and Happy Birthday Bob! A very joyful and colourful exhibition, part survey show downstairs with new works in the upper gallery. On Now!
Last but not least, blink and you will have missed it – ‘Passaggio’ Catherine Cloran which was on at Barometer Gallery in Paddington, semi abstract colour works from nature created in the Italian countryside. you can still view the show here on Catherine’s website
