ARTS WEDNESDAY 16 NOVEMBER 2011
Today we hear Part 6, the final episode with Adrian Newstead and Aboriginal art. Adrian will round off the series with a discussion of urban artists. Next week we start a new series of Sydney By Design with Ed Lippmann, making a welcome return to the program.
My special guest this week is Mitchell Librarian, Richard Neville, also making a welcome return. The library just purchased a rare album of watercolours dating to 1810s found in the back of a cupboard of an elderly gentleman in London, Ontario in Canada. The image is from the album and is titled: View of Dawe’s Battery at the Entrance of Sydney Cove and is dated at ca 1818. The artists is convict Joseph Lycett.
Music will mainly deal with seeking and finding!
