Past and present students of Robert Baines (head of the RMIT Gold and Silversmithing dept) will have more than a passing curiosity in seeing his new show opening this week at Gallery Funaki. It is a rare treat to see his work - despite being highly respected the world over the good Professor rarely shows his work and Funaki is such a terrific space to see pieces by this jewelry virtuoso.
We are also curious to see the work of Savina Hopkins at Seventh Gallery. Hopkins works as an illustrator specialising in science and nature (her beetle drawings rock). Her fine art work reflects her other specialist skill - mosaic - and we really love the look of this collage based work.
The ladies of hml are also very curious about this installation at Uplands by Sharon Goodwin. We've never been to this supercool space - to be honest with you it's a bit intimidating, but we may just be lured by this one.
It's going to be another beautiful week weatherwise so there is much to be done 'out of doors' - bbq action, a drive to Sorrento, and the finishing (and starting) of a couple of Christmas projects(more on that tomorrow). Beck arrives home from Japan - so expect lots of pics in the coming days. Happy Spring everyone!
