A Tear in the Glass and other stories – 23 August with Maisy Stapleton


This year’s Sydney Architecture Festival focuses on Great Architecture – What makes a building great? Can great places bring us together and why do we need ‘great?’ Tim Horton from the Architects’ Registration Board joins the program to give us the key to the Festival and its value for the community.

A new publication by Mary Rillis Clarke on the life of museum director Nina Stanton is the second story on Arts Thursday.

Nina’s memory, captured like a bubble in the stem of a Georgian goblet, has been preserved in A Tear in the Glass. This beautifully produced book follows her emotionally rich life in relationship to objects chosen from the Johnston Collection, the Melbourne museum where Nina served as Director.

Then meet Paula do Prada, one of the 2018 Woollahra Artists in Residence whose intricately-threaded works of art cause much comment as people pass by her window in the EJ Ward Centre, Paddington.

Discover Paula’s work and the value of this residency for artists, as Woollahra Council is about to call for applications for residencies in 2019.
