Upcoming Exhibition

Roomies kicks of the Year off the Dragon with its first exciting event. By special invitation Clarrice will have three works included in Damien Minton Gallery's opening show for the year "Five Bells: A Visual Ode to Sydney" 
Opening this Sat 4 Feb 2-4pm.
Address 61-63 Great Buckingham St Redfern
Exhibition dates Wed 1 to Sat 18 February 2012.
We think Clarrice's work will sit nicely alongside artists such Elisabeth Cummings, Euan Macleod, Peter Kingston, Martin Sharp to name a few. The theme for the show, inspired by a poem by Kenneth Slessor and a book by Delia Falconer entitled "Sydney" explores in a visual manner the perennial discussion around what IS the city of Sydney. Don't miss Clarrice's personal interpretations embellished in window wire and wool.

As we get ready for the year's art projects,
we say goodbye to our manager, 
Julia and send her off with a collage by Phyllis Grima from Denroma.


Phyllis has just begun to use collage
on canvas and her flowers are colorful and fun.


We hope to develop more card making in 2012 and offer them to the public.

Since most boardng houses charge up to 95% of their pension for living and care, it leaves many boaarding house residents with little or no money to feel autonomous with.
Just $10 extra a week gives someone a trip to a cafe, library, and some experience outside of boarding house life.
