Itty-bitty city hanging at NSW Parliament House

Today from 5 - 7 is the opening of MAN:GAE, an exhibition by the Korean Women’s Art Society in Sydney. It is hanging in Fountain Court at NSW Parliament House and I was invited to be part of this venture to celebrate 50 years of Australian and Korean friendship. There are about 45 artists, the majority Korean, represented by one piece each,…I have sent “Itty-bitty city” because I thought it best represented friendship and the title of the exhibition which means in full bloom. I’m really looking forward to seeing the diversity of works on display. This is actually a continuation of an exhibition which travelled to Seoul last year.

We’ve had big winds and storms - sunny today but clouds scudding across the sky and my windows are rattling - it will be chilly but hopefully not too wet getting to the opening. I’m really thrilled to be hanging in such a wonderful exhibition and location! I bought some really gorgeous and giddy colourful and patterned tights when I travelled through Scone recently - I think today will be a good day for them!
