ARTS THURSDAY – the Writer and the Gallerist
Arts Thursday with Maisy Stapleton on 17 May.
WHAT’S ON TODAY’S PROGRAM:
Ged Gillmore writes crime fiction.
His hero is an ex-drug dealer and Ged’s third book in the Bill Murdoch series has just been published.
English-born Ged has found a way to successfully incorporate experiences from his own background and roles from the police service to the film industry, into an Australian environment. His fast-paced stories with surprising twists, a rather dubious hero and a cast of characters keep the reader whipping through the pages of his books to the end.
Join Ged first up on the Arts Thursday’s program.
If you’ve ever wanted to open a gallery join me for a conversation with Janet Clayton, who opened her first gallery someahat by accident!
The Janet Clayton Gallery on Oxford Street Paddington has been introducing the community to a range of artists’ work from the fine-drawn beauty of Hanna Kay’s pieces to some remarkable installations such as Michael Keighery’s ceramics in memory of a soldier ancestor Dead Man’s Penny and the extraordinary feather-based wearables of Emily Valentine.
Janet will be speaking about her background and what led her into the life of a gallerist.
Join Arts Thursday as we explore the mind of a fiction-noir writer and the thoughts of a gallerist.
