Exhibitions to see in January 2017 - Updated

The wreath Darling Harbour 2016 (c) Michael Smyth

The holiday season is a great time to get out and see some exhibitions, to get some inspiration and to get those creative juices going.

On in Sydney in January are:

Through a different lens - Cazneaux by the water at The Maritime Museum until Feb. 5th  The images reflect the work of Harold Casneaux in producing emotive interpretations of life and work around the harbour.  His use of diffuse light and misty clouds is almost Turneresque.  There are some wonderful images taken during the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  Admission Free.

Sydney Morning Herald Photos 1440 at the Mitchell Library until Jan. 29th Not a huge series but some excellent portraits and current affairs images.  Worth seeing to appreciate the important work that news photographers carry out, often in dangerous and difficult situations.  Free Admission

New Matter - Recent forms of Photography at the Art Gallery of NSW until Feb. 9th  There is a lot of pseudo arty claptrap in the artist statements and little of real interest.  It is all very well exploring alternative presentations, but if the images fail to engage the viewer, then they can only be seen as self indulgent and delusional.  The exhibition "Time, Light, Japan" on the other hand is worth a visit to see some contemporary and different ideas.  Admission Free

Another exhibition available, thanks to Paul Fowler for providing this information, is an exhibition of works by Max Dupain and Olive Cotton, at the Hazelhurst Gallery, Gymea.  The information can be found here... 

100 Most influential Photos as selected by Time Magazine

In a move bound to create comment and controversy, Time Magazine has put together a collection of what they and a selected number of curators have chosen as the 100 most influential photos of all time.  Some images are disturbing, many helped change attitudes and reveal hidden truths as well as bear witness to important moments in our history.

Lane Cove Creative is moving.....

Due to the imminent closure of the Lane Cove Music and Cultural Centre, we have now secured new premises at Hunters Hill.  We had intended remaining in the Lane Cove area, however restrictions on the hours and numbers permitted at the new community centre made it unsuitable for our requirements.

Commencing from our meeting on 2nd June we will be meeting at the Congregational Hall, 20a Alexandra Street, Hunters Hill.  The hall is adjacent the lovely historic church and is easily accessed from the corner of Ferdinand Street. We have been warmly welcomed by the Pastor, Dr Peter Atkins and look forward to a happy association.  The new premises have a lot of character and we are all excited about the move.
