Animal Soup...

...is the name of emerging artist Gail Willoughby's new exhibition at The Light Factory Gallery which runs from today until Sunday 2 September.  Her edgy style takes its inspiration from the animal world with a unique and humorous approach to her bold and colourful art - her creatures have attitude!

Established local artist Ron Reynolds' exhibition Cezanne's mountain revisited also opens today at The Light Factory Gallery.  Reynolds has had a lifelong love affair with France, and in particular Cezanne's old stamping ground Aix en Provence.  The mountain that dominates this area Mont Saint-Victoire fascinated Cezanne and is Reynolds' sole inspiration for his latest exhibition.

Speaking of art, I have been dismayed to hear that La Trobe University is contemplating axing its Art History course - even more ironic given that it has its own Museum of Art and that numbers for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses have been relatively steady.  There is currently a petition to save Art History at La Trobe and there have already been public figures like Barry Humphries who have also expressed their concern.

Miss Rosanna is also a member of Banyule Council's arts and cultural advisory committee (public art) which includes LUMA's (La Trobe University Museum of Art) Artistic Director Dr Vincent Alessi.
