Meet and greet

There are a number of events on over the next few weeks which may interest those of you in the world of art or business (or both like me!).  Registrations were actually closing COB today for the Banyule Women in Business Lunch 2013 being held next Thursday 17 October from 11.30am - 2.15 pm and featuring a keynote presentation (Customer Relationship Management in the Digital Age) from Megan Quinn, a Co-founder of online luxury fashion retailer Net-A-Porter.  There's a two course lunch in the Great Hall at The Centre Ivanhoe for $49 including soft drink and the presentation.  Bookings online at www.banyulebusiness.com.au or phone 9457 9816 - numbers were at 180 people when I last checked!  You'll see me there if you're going.

The Biennial Banyule Award for Works on Paper exhibition of finalists is also being held on Wednesday 23 June from 6 - 8 pm at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe. Titled 'of light - reflections on colour' the exhibition will be opened by Dr Vincent Alessi, Artistic Director, LUMA La Trobe University Museum of Art and Councillor Jenny Mulholland with the winner announced by Banyule Mayor, Councillor Wayne Phillips.  I love this year's theme.
