About Visit to NSW Art Gallery 18th August

Thank you all for your keen participation in the Art Gallery visit. It was wonderful to see so many of you turn up, and I was amazed how many of you stayed back and spent quality time connecting with the paintings. I was also very pleased to hear that for some of you this was your first visit: there will be more visits from now on I am sure. Your responses in class also showed that a number of you had really allowed the paintings to enter into your feelings and imagination. Many of you were clearly also able to see the living links between the visual arts and Australian Literature. I hope many of you follow up the suggestions for deepening this understanding by looking at the texts in the Macquarie Pen Anthology and the paintings on your worksheet. You know have a visual and historical context in which you can locate all the Aust Lit texts that will be introduced to you during the rest of the semester. Here are a few of you gathering your thoughts before our journey round the various Australian Painting halls.

Hi Michael, just keeping an eye on your lj and I was just letting you know that they have an exhibition on at the gallery on "Victorian Visions" but I suppose you know that since you have been there recently. I was there last Friday and reminiscing on our wonderful visits to the gallery and our picnic in the gardens. Thank you. =)

Hi Giovanna.... so good to see that LiveJournal is still working as a way of keeping contact with the cohort of students from the past. I look forward to keeping in touch in this way and will continue posting my material up here. Are you still keeping your LJ active? Let me know.
Cheers
