What is Talking Art?
Presented by the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network BMCAN, Talking Artz is about providing events and functions to enable artists to gather both formally and informally to support creative practice across diverse arts modalities in the Blue Mountains. It is a regional social and cultural network, to provide opportunities to empower artists to build and develop their practice with the support of others within their community.
Talking Artz will take place in the gallery every 1st Saturday of the month between 3pm – 6pm, all welcome
September – Marty Walker and Peter Long interviewed by Wendy Tsai
Come and join us for a sight and sound cultural feast with Marty Walker and Peter Long in conversation with Wendy Tsai on the 7th September at Nolan on Lovel Gallery, Katoomba from 3pm. It will be an informative, creative adventure as we listen to and watch this pair at work and in conversation.
Marty Walker is a local photographer whose work has been exhibited widely, including our own Cultural Centre Gallery. Peter Long is a local musician, composer, educator and graphic artist, who is also completing a PhD in ‘the aesthetic experience of spatio-temporal suspension and its application in popular music and imagery’! Together, Marty and Peter completed a film for Penrith Council on Queen St, St Marys. This film is a rich cultural document recording what happens when diverse cultural groups gather to prepare food and eat together.
Both artists will also perform and show some of their individual and collaborative work. It promises to be a stimulating and engaging event.
Please come along and support these local artists.
Bring a plate or drink to share or make a donation towards drinks and nibbles.
