Less is More

Less is More: Minimal and Post-Minimal Art in Australia is the name of the exhibition which opens on Friday at Heide Museum's Central Galleries in Bulleen.  The exhibition looks at 1960s Melbourne and Sydney through a young generation of artists who explored Minimalism through abstract painting and sculpture and also looks at contemporary artists of today who use Minimal ideas across a range of media.  Over thirty Australian artists are featured as well as works from a number of key American artists.

There are also tickets available to a Creative Women's Circle event on this Saturday 4 August at NorthCity4, 61 Weston Street, Brunswick featuring the five creative founders of art/jewellery design hub NorthCity4 including local Heidelberg West artist Caz Guiney.  The event is on from 2 - 4 pm (1.45 pm start).  Tickets are $11 for CWC & Craft Victoria Members and $16.50 for Subscribers & Non-members.

Finally, I popped into Miss Marie for a quick coffee this morning and was chatting to Paul, the owner who told me he turned away 30 people from the cafe earlier this week because he couldn't fit them in.  Think they might have to think about bigger premises...or opening another cafe.
