Seeking Those Moments of Transition

Today, just as I was finishing the final edit, I read the news of SYLVIA ANDERSON’s death at the age of 88. Sylvia was an intelligent, imaginative woman who had a profound influence on me in my youth and many other inquisitive children. Best known as the voice of Lady Penelope, Sylvia Anderson, along with her late husband Gerry Anderson, was the inspiration behind the much loved, visionary ‘THUNDERBIRDS’.

The Arts Show February

Hope that you will take a moment to listen to my recent radio interview with Alex McCulloch on ‘The Arts Show.’ In this interview, I share the highlights of our recent Avec Pleasure art tours to The Frieze NYC art Fair May 2015, the Venice Biennale September 2015, and our two new Art Tours.

TWMA

The HOWARD ARKLEY (and friends…) Art Exhibition has been brilliantly curated by the director of the TarraWarra Museum of Art. Victoria Lynn and TWMA curator Anthony Fitzpatrick. It is currently showing at TWMA which is located one hour’s drive from central Melbourne in the beautiful wine-growing area of the Yarra Valley.

My recent visit to the HOWARD ARKLEY (and friends…)

My recent visit to the HOWARD ARKLEY (and friends…) exhibition did not disappoint. It was so interesting that I managed to go out for a second look and to be there for their Public Forum: The work of Howard Arkley. The forum included personal observations and life stories by fellow Artists, students and friends of Arkley, as well as curatorial comments by TWMA director Victoria Lynn and Curator of the show Anthony Fitzpatrick .

Tour Dates

Avec Pleasure delivers a VIP experience which is planned around attending major Art Biennales, Art Fairs and International Art Symposiums. Join us on one of our upcoming Art Tours and discover why we have been so successful at designing ‘trips of a lifetime’ that will enrich you culturally and inspire a deeper understanding of Art practice.
