SOLACE, art and poetry exhibition
Mrs Harris Shop is a suburban single room gallery that, yes, used to be a shop before supermarkets became the place we went to buy our groceries and these little shops disappeared. It's a beautiful, light-filled space.
Donna's work is on display (including a canopy made out of teabags!), and my seven poems are exhibited alongside. I copied out the poems using a fountain pen on rice paper and I'll be doing some free readings over the duration of the exhibition.
Recently I was interviewed by Vision Australia for their new series on emerging writers and I talk a little more about the exhibition in that interview, which will be broadcast at 4pm on Saturday 18 Feb (Part I) and 4pm on Saturday 25 Feb (Part 2). Tune in to Radio 1197AM or online at Vision Australia's Listen Live Page.
