Well we did it!! Last Wednesday, Mid-Western Regional Council voted to approve our DA to hold an experimental opera at Wollemi Standing Stone. This is great news and will allow us to proceed with this exciting event. If you are interested in attending, please make your reservations early as tickets sales from our first attempt started to sell out almost as soon as we put them up.
Thank you to the community and ticket holders for your support and understanding as we negotiated our legal obligation to council. It is going to be an amazing event. Hope to see you there. If you are looking for accommodation, check out http://rylstonekandos.com.
A small audience is invited to cross from dark into light as we welcome the approach of Spring Equinox at the site of this remnant stone structure.
Tammy Brennan's expressive range, spanning mezzo to high soprano, will resonate and respond to the alignment of the stone circle compass points, astronomical times and points of Wiradjuri history, and the geopolitical identity of site.
Guided by movement artist Victoria Hunt, witness a marking of time improvising between microtone and melody, full harvest moon and fire.
The haunting overtones of Tammy's voice within this landscape instigating a resonant and vibrational exchange between the standing stones and the ridge of the outer surrounding low mountains.
September 14 (Spring Equinox) 5pm - 7pm Where: Rylstone area. To book online please visit www.123tix.com.au/events/4577/transcript or call (02) 6372 1020.
A great beginning
"Drawing Water" is Vivienne McDonald's first exhibition. She is intrigued by how the light makes water dance and sparkle, whether in still life or landscape.
She loves the challenge of drawing with pencil, the deliciousness of oils and the unpredictability of watercolour.
She is a council member and a Fellow of the Royal Art Society. Her career in textile design has now become art, just for the sheer joy of the process. For her, art will always be thrilling.
"Everywhere I Look" is Debra Balloch's first exhibition and it confirms her attraction to the everyday things.
From still lifes to streetscapes, she is drawn to and constantly distracted by tonal contrast, rich colours and negative spaces, no matter what the subject.
She is passionate about drawing and loves the butteriness of oils, all of which have been painted alla prima.
Debra is a Fellow of the Royal Art Society of NSW and her thirty odd years of experience as a textile designer has undoubtedly contributed to her art today.
This exhibition is good, 'Top Shelf', and worth a visit. It will continue until September 30 in the Saffron Café, Louee Street, Rylstone.
