Flying South with Kat Rhodes.

The wonderful Katrina Rhodes ruffled up a whole new host of her fabulous fowl folk and launched them to a flock of followers with her second exhibition "Like Impressions of Flying South" at No Vacancy Gallery last friday.  We loved her debut show in April 2011 "A Handful of Civilised Friends" and had determined to keep abreast of creative endeavours.

We do Pho @ iDo

Whats behind the green door?
A bowl of the best Pho that you might find in Melbourne.

With a concise Pho menu running at lunchtimes only on Friday and Saturday, iDo Kitchen is a great little gem, hidden away in Albert Park, of all places.  Who would have thought.

Pinned by the N.G.V.

Check out the National Gallery of Victoria's Pinterest page which they have created for their Mixtape 80's exhibition.  There are quite a few Plain Jane pinnings to celebrate Mr Browns textile contribution to Mixtape, as we reported after the opening.

Colour & Controversy with Paul Yore.

This exhibition of Paul's, held at the Linden CCA in St Kilda, as part of a group show titled"Like Mike Now What", certainly pulled the local art worlds attention and that of the wider community.  Some politically motivated conservatives seized the opportunity to play the "Kiddie porn" card and caused the  exhibition to be closed down temporarily.  OK. It may have been a little crass, confronting and garish, but the gallery had warned of the explicit nature of the installation and shouldn't art push a few risks?
