Seventh Skin

It's been a few wild old days weather-wise in Melbourne.  We were blacked out here in Rosanna and I was quite proud of my efforts in starting a fire at our house to stay warm - it's something Mr Rosanna usually takes care of.  My boys thought it was so exciting to come home and find the fireplace all ablaze on a week night and the house lit by candles as it started to get dark.  The next few weeks are the coldest here in Melbourne so I'll be posting about all the indoor events I've got planned.

Speaking of which, the Seventh Skin exhibition (exploring disguise and adornment) opening is being held tomorrow night from 6 - 8 pm at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space at 14 Ivanhoe Parade in Ivanhoe.  Curated by my friend and colleague Claire Watson (a very talented artist in her own right), it will be opened by Councillor Craig Langdon - the Mayor of Banyule Council - and Associate Professor Robert Nelson from Monash University (and Art Critic at The Age).
Visitors having fun at the free Polixeni Papapetrou photo booth!
There are over 20 artists on show - some of them local and a number of supporting events including being centre stage in your very own Polixeni Papapetrou creation, making a Roseanne Bartley neck piece in the new workshop space or saying hello to Artist in Residence John Gosper.

The show started last Wednesday and will be on until 2 August, Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm with free entry.  Hatch is also staffed by community volunteers so say hello to them if you are visiting!
