Trying to find something witty to say, but all that's melodically going through my head is the Skippy theme song, with a twist: "Witty, witty, witty the bush Kangaroo". Oddly enough, a variety of life scenarios seem to conjure the Australian classic in my mind. Maybe we should have Bush Week at Melbourne Arts Club, where Julia dresses as a Kangaroo and I walk around singing?.... I digress
MOST, I repeat MOST galleries are re-opening this week so there is ART GALORE, like BBQs galore but with a lot less red meat. We went to Lamington Drive (Collingwood), Bus Projects (Collingwood), Tristan Koenig (Collingwood) and Conduit Arts (Fitzroy) last night, all worth a squiz, especially Beci Orpin's show at Lamington Drive.
Off The Kerb (Collingwood) is coming back with a bang and part of that explosion is M.A.C's favourite son Jason Parker Just Passing Through in the front gallery. No Hoper Worlds of Contrasts in the back gallery. Ashlea Bechaz Mecha Goliath upstairs gallery, 6pm - 9pm.
