Magic and more!
Arts Thursday 14th April 2016 focusses on the contribution of a major cultural identity in Sydney, the late Bill Wright and sprinkles the air with magic when we talk to Bruce Glenn, The Gentleman Magician.
Firstly, the exhibition, William Wright – Visions Through Disbelief.
There are only a few days left to see this exhibition at the National Art School in Darlinghurst.
It focuses on the life and work of William Wright, or Bill Wright as most would know him – a creative polymath whose role as artist, teacher, arts director, writer and curator made a longstanding contribution to the creative life and thinking of Sydney and, particularly through his teaching and support, to its artists.
Michael Snelling, Director and CEO of the National Art School joins Maisy Stapleton to talk about the man, the artist and his legacy in this exhibition closing on 16th April.

Then we explore the magic, when I speak to The Gentleman Magician, Bruce Glenn, member of the select magician’s club, The Magic Circle, with just 1400 members worldwide and just recently appointed as an associate to its Inner Magic Circle.
Bruce has recently launched regular magical soirees in the city and we’ll be speaking together about his background, inspiration and the soirees themselves, which are held every Friday at the Royal Automobile Club in the city.
