Sylvia Convey is one of Australia's most distinctive outsider artists. She was born in a refugee camp Itzehoe near Hamburg Germany in 1948. With her Lativan parents and elder sister she sailed to Australia on the Skaugum in early 1950. They were part of the first wave of immigrants to arrive in Australia after World War II. This group of displaced persons' had a profound effect on what was then an Anglo Celtic monoculture. From her childhood Sylvia had the gift of being able to transmute her joys and sorrows into poetic images which have the power to enchant and disturb. A true outsider artist her images are derived from her own day to day and oneiric experiences. Intuitively she has tapped the richness of her ancestral heritage which adds a decorative radiance to her images. An engaging eroticism is also a dominant theme in her work.

Block Projects

79 Stephenson Street, Richmond VIC 3121

Start flexing your calves and pulling up your sweat bands – there are some seriously worthy stairs to clamber. Block Projects have filled the innards of the Block Arcade with a conceptual exhibition space designed for artists, hand picked by a team of fervent curators. These creative sorts have built the gallery upon the philosophy of providing a platform for fresh talent to exhibit in a commercially viable environment. In a field which pays much attention to highly established artists, this may be otherwise challenging.

If you seek higher ground, request a peek at the rooftop space where launch parties unfold. Here you can view Melbourne from a peculiar angle. Abandoned buildings and tight laneways viewed from a birds-eye perspective are a reminder that secrets can still be discovered in this town.

Block Projects currently features the work of Jordan Snedding.The orchestrated layers of oil on canvas create an infinite regress of colour and prove a genuine creative workmanship. This one is well worth the stairs.

Level 1/32 Wangaratta Street, Richmond VIC 3121

29 August 2011 | Melanie Flynn, a former gallery manager at Karen Woodbury Gallery, is opening a new project space in Richmond, Melbourne.

Called Lowrise Projects, the gallery will open on 9 September 2011 with an exhibition of embroidery works by Adelaide artist Sera Waters.

Flynn, together with her partner Jeremy Smart, also runs a company called Artsphere, which builds websites for artists. They were looking for an office space for the company when they came across a small warehouse space in Richmond. Flynn, who has 10 years’ experience in the visual arts, immediately saw the potential.

She hopes the small scale of the 30 square metre space will give artists the freedom to be more experimental and innovative without the burden of having to fill a large venue. The gallery will not represent artists but instead work on a project-to-project basis. Most will be emerging artists.

Richmond War Memorial

Flinders Highway, Jack Brown Lions Park, Richmond QLD 4740

ANZAC ceremonies invariably close with the words 'Lest we forget'. In the outback town of Richmond, a memorial to those who fought in WWI was dedicated on 25 April 2001. The Richmond war memorial is a unique monument: a steel crucifix stands supported by three stylised rifles, marking the graves of three ANZAC soldiers who died in the bloodiest of WWI battles, at the Somme in France during 1916. About 1 million soldiers, British, Australian, French and German, died during five months of battle over 12 kilometres of ground. Australia's loss of 60,000 young men throughout the Great War led to an unprecedented outpouring of grief, the birth of the ANZAC tradition of mateship, loyalty and courage, and the emergence of public monuments honouring the volunteer recruits who went to fight for the British Empire. Richmond's memorial includes rolls of honour for individuals from the region who served and died in WWI and subsequent international conflicts. Jack Browns Lions Park is also home to a memorial to Lieutenant Colonel Henty William Murray VC, described as the most decorated infantry soldier of the British Empire during WWI. He lived at Glenlyon Station, Richmond from 1928 until his death in 1966.
