The Holidays have announced their second Album 'Reel Feel' and as part of their national tour they will be in Canberra at Transit Bar on Thursday, 13 March 2014! Lead singer Simon Jones describes the album as “A travelogue of the last few years, ideas sketched in different places while experiencing something; wonder, isolation, stress, happiness. Then slowly taken apart and scrutinised and run through amplifiers and synthesisers only to find that often the original feeling was the purest and then joyfully getting back to that.” “This was a difficult record to make, always searching for a sound just beyond our grasp, narrowing in and trying to capture some essence. I had an idea for a sound that I couldn't quite name or explain, a vague feeling, somewhere between love and loneliness, like a daydream where you can't quite remember the content but the feelings you had remain. I guess that's what this album is, trying to make real the intangible feelings of a few years of living.” Click here to purchase your tickets from moshtix.com.au - on-sale 9:00am, Wed 15th Jan, 2014

Exhibition: Finding Nature's Rhythm @ Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre
In 2013, Christine Atkins was awarded as a winner in the Australian Craft Awards in the categories of Lighting, and Best Use of Glass. Her practice has continued to evolve and change since then, culminating in nine new works which form Nature’s Rhythm. Nature’s Rhythm explores the interaction between light, water and glass through a combination of wall-hung and installation works. The exhibition comes after a research trip to Japan in 2013, where Atkins delved into the connection Japanese culture has to nature, specifically exploring the wabi-sabi methodology and the construction of Japanese zen gardens. Atkins continues to push boundaries and explore innovative new techniques with her work, with this exhibition proving once again that she is a talent to watch. Nature’s Rhythm will be opened by Emeritus Professor David Williams AM at Craft ACT on Thursday 13 February, 2014 at 6pm.
