from today's portrait group at the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop, WSU Richmond, 60 minute Oil and 30 minute Watercolour studies
having my car being serviced I took another train ride to the city for a few hours, I visited the Museum of Contemporary art... I know these artists are trying hard to say something, but it strikes me that a lot of modern art is like the sort of stuff that High School art teachers would give their kids to do to keep them busy and try to be creative.
I enjoyed much more some of the things I found out on the streets
Today was the opening of our exhibition commemorating Forty Years of the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop.
Emeritus Professor Graham Swain AM (former Principal of HAC and retired Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Western Sydney and Chief Executive Officer opened the Exhibition, his speech covered the beginning of his role in the birth of the Western Sydney University, and the beginning of the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop, and it's 'mid life crisis' with the changing relationship from the Hawkesbury Agricultural College to WSU
