Harvey Galleries

The Art of Dr. Seuss presented by Harvey Galleries was in the Block Arcade in Melbourne providing a couple of rooms of delightful limited edition prints and artwork which children (and I suspect many adults like myself) to gaze for long extended moments during the heat of a Melbourne summer.  The prints were full of […]

Eliza Rose art

Market places are a great place to see craft works and local artists.  For me the ones that stood out at the Brisbane South Bank markets were the animal sketchs of Eliza Rose.  The most beautiful Australian animal portraits such as koala, wombat in the lovely pen and ink style but which are actually very […]
