While I know people who like to describe themselves as both an artist and a writer, I’m not one of them, it’s more of a personal preference as I tend to have a mental association with the title of artist connected to visual arts (like paintings, drawings, sculptures) or visual performance (like theater or any of the stuff Marina Abramovic does). For me, Writing isn’t an entirely visual product, while the writer must set the scene, it’s up to the reader to visualise it.
However, I believe I’m being side-tracked.
The Art Gallery of Ballarat have a exhibition currently running
For Auld Lang Syne: Images of Scottish Australia from First Fleet to Federation
Date: Friday, April 11, 2014 – Sunday, July 27, 2014, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Cost: Adult $15, Concession $10, Gallery Member $7.50, Child (U16) Free
It’s really easy to get to, and if you travel by train to Ballarat,
there’s an visitor information table which supplies maps and directions. However, I wanted to mention it because the exhibition ends this Sunday, so please go and see it while you can.
