Shop: All About Flowers Plant Sale
If you’ve ever wanted a catalogue ready garden, but don’t have the coin to shell out for beautiful flowers, then you’re in luck. The Royal Botanic Garden’s All About flowers display is ending, and as a good service to the people of Sydney, they are selling all the plants from the display for the low low price of a Gold Coin donation (barring orchids, $10 for those, don’t be vultures). I recommend getting in there quickly and bring cash asit starts Saturday, August 5th, 8 am at the Calyx, for more information visit:
View: Salon Des Refusés
The Salon Des Refusés is also know as the Alternative Archibald, since its initial opening in 1992 it has served as a response to the large number of works not selected for the Archibald Prize. A number of art-works that didn’t make the cut for the display in the official exhibition are instead available for viewing here at the S.H Ervin Gallery, Millers Point. See it as the Archibald’s wacky cousin with the criteria for Salon being quality, diversity, humour and innovation. With over 50 works on exhibition it’s a great way to see the other side of the Archibald.
