After the enormous amount of self indulgence that took place over the Easter break we thought it was high time to lift the tone a little, and what better way to do it than by letting our feminist flags fly. With this in mind we've decided this week's show of the week is the Counihan Gallery's annual Women's Salon, celebrating the Centenary of Women's Suffrage in Victoria. This years show focuses on the various acts of persuasion, dissent and protest undertaken by those plucky lasses who pushed hard against the powers that be so we ladies today could enjoy the rights of citizenship, and vote tools like John Howard out of office. We have much to thank them for, now if we could only get some movement in Women's comparative pay rates and something done about childcare...
Official opening: 6-8pm this Thursday the 27th of March
Exhibition is open to the public from Friday 28th March until Saturday the 20th April.

Birds of a feather
Look, to be honest we don't know much about this exhibition but the invite was excellent and featured two of our favourite things - birds and a wunderkammer. Anne Conron's A Tasmanian Wunderkammer is on at the Smith Street Gallery, which of course also means ridiculously good coffee at Enotecha for anyone making the effort to go and see it. Exhibition Opening 4-6pm Saturday 29th March.
