Let's face it, around about this time of year there's a lot on, and the competition for your spare time and spare change is fierce! This week we're staying local, so apologies to all those interstate and international viewers looking for reccomendations: there's just too much on in our own hometown...
bottled up

"Can a ceramic artist bottle emotion?" this is the question posed by Pan Gallery and Craft Victoria's inaugural, annual, award show now on at Pan Gallery. If you're as curious as we are about the answer get on over and  decide for yourself.
November 6-25
Pan Gallery (Nortchote Pottery)
142 - 144 Weston St Brunswick East.

the graduate(s)
We here at hml like to keep things fresh so we'll be heading out to the graduate shows this week (and most probably next week as well) in our search for the hottest young things in craft. Here's just a few that we'll be clearing the calendar for this week.

NMIT Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology- Jewellery
35 graduates, and yes  there WILL be things on sale... last years was a doozy so take our advice and get in early. November 13 - 21 Northcote Town Hall: Studio 1 189 High Street, Northcote.

RMIT Industrial Design
and yes we know this is a pic from last years show but what will be on offer this year is still a big secret, so you'll have to get there yourself - or wait for us to post pics next week.
November 13-25
Guilford Lane Gallery
20-24 Guilford Lane, Melbourne

RMIT Bachelor of Design (Interior Design)
this show includes work from all three years, so should prove an interesting mixed bag at least.
13-16 November
246 Nicholson Street Fitzroy

LaTrobe University Bendigo Bachelor of Visual Arts (Ceramics)
one for the out of towners
November 13 - 27
Phyllis Palmer Gallery and Graphic Design Exhibition space
The Visual Arts Centre 121 View Street Bendigo

RMIT Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Gold and Silversmithing
(first and second years) Curated by jewellery institution Mark Edgoose this one is bound to provide some serious fresh talent.
4–13 November
RMIT School of Art Gallery Building 2, Bowen Street, off LaTrobe Street.

RMIT Diploma of Fine Arts (Furniture Design) and RMIT Diploma of Furnishing Technology
always interesting to see new things to sit on.
11-15 November

QV Byuilding 30-40 Jane Bell lane

RMIT Bachelor of Fine Arts and HONS (Sculpture)
surprisingly crafty
RMIT Building 37, Level 1

As for next week here's the heads up: don't spend all your hard earned peso's at once, we've still got RMIT  Ceramics, Textiles, Gold and Silversmithing, Fashion to open, as well as the Monash Megathon to contend with. Happy Hunting people.
