Back in SydneyLand - Art All Around & Fashion at The Strand..

Yes back making the gallery rounds in Sydney, seeing lovely work and catching up with friends and sharing a few drinks as well. And the best place for a few glasses this week was the Veuve Clicquot bar / meet the designers night at The Strand Arcade. And you know what, The Strand really must be right up there as one of the most beautiful covered arcades in the world - yes truly, so don't forget to give it some thoughtful appreciation next time you go wandering through..

July saw the lunch of new -f-i-l-t-e-r- gallery at the previous Badger and Fox space; 201 Albion Street with Peter Maddison and Ian Geraghty moving the focus to contemporary art. Fridays and Saturday only. Scroll DOWN for more Shows & Pictures..
