'Beyond the Concrete' Exhibition Coming to Ross Library

Robert Kirbyson will be holding an exhibition of his works 'Beyond the Concrete,' at Ross library from July 17th to July 31st 2007.

This exhibition of acrylics takes inspiration from the forms and patterns that creation develops around us. Rob also studies the way in which other cultures have embraced this force in their environment.

'In the developed world, we have largely lost touch with our environment and seem indifferent to its destruction in the name of progress. Not only our own environment but other people’s environments also. In countries we consider undeveloped and a resource for the West, the environment is still central to their cultures and this is highly evident in their art, which generally exists for cathartic reasons rather than purely commercial reasons.'

The image on the left is an example of some of the work that will be included in the exhibition.

Later in the year, October 2nd to 22nd, the Library will be host to the Rogue Gene Collective of which Rob is both a member and the founder.



Happy 25th Birthday Ave

Happy birthday greetings go to Ave Pennenone, who celebrated her 25th birthday on Friday 30th March.

Ave could not celebrate fully on the day itself as she and fiancé Christo Kotze were working. However, she arranged with friends to celebrate on the following evening and asked everybody to come in fancy dress.

When Tina and I arrived at the Horse and Jockey to have a drink with the birthday girl, we were greeted by Zorro, Cruella de Ville, a rather raunchy looking WPC, an officer and a gentleman, Sam(antha) the bin man, Christo the Clown and many others. The friends left a little later to celebrate at various other venues in the town and apparently a good time was had by all.

Ave made her own costume and I think you will all agree, she did a brilliant job and makes a really pretty picture.

Pictured left are Ave and Christo at the start of the evening.

In the photograph below are Christo and Ave with some of their friends in their fantastic costumes.

The bottom photograph shows Christo and Ave the next morning, just before starting work. Surprisingly, they didn't look too hung over.
