BRONWYN HAWKINS AND BRIAN WOOD RUN THE CHURN ROOM, A COMBINED ARTIST SPACE, GALLERY AND SHOP KITTED OUT WITH ANTIQUE FURNITURE.

Where is it? Dayboro Butter Factory, Shop 6, 38 Williams Street, Dayboro, Queensland.

Describe The Churn Room in a sentence. Bronwyn Hawkins:

A hub that encourages creative adventure and hosts a like-minded artisan community.

What goes on there? BH: Artisans create work here in a way that encourages visitors to experience their creative process! The store offers a curated range of useful, everyday items and thoughtful, quality gifts that support our artisan community. We have a workshop program that includes pottery, textile arts, coppersmithing, silversmithing, spoon-making, basket-weaving and more. We build community, share processes and ideas, and inspire each other on so many levels.

Tell us about this building. BH: The Churn Room is steeped in history. The building was built in the ’30s, and it was an active butter factory all the way through the ’60s. The thick concrete walls and original trusses were where butter-factory equipment hung. There’s also a light-filled mezzanine level that is perfect for workshops now.

CHURN ROOM, A COMBINED ARTIST SPACE, GALLERY AND SHOP KITTED OUT WITH ANTIQUE FURNITURE

What motivated you to start the business? Brian Wood: The space itself was an incredibly inspiring opportunity. Bronwyn runs The Handmade Closet next door, a bespoke linen-clothing brand. When an opportunity came to take over the adjoining space, Bronwyn bravely took the chance to promote other local artists. I run Woodside Ceramics and joined Bronwyn in the shared space. Together we strive to grow the arts in Dayboro.

What’s your favourite part about running The Churn Room? BH: The sounds of making and of conversations, and helping our fellow artisans grow their individual businesses. We love seeing our community drop by, and we are grateful we have a space that is available for them to stay a while.

Why is Dayboro worth a visit? BW: Dayboro is located in the foothills of the D’aguilar Range. It is a small, growing township with country charm less than an hour away from Brisbane’s CBD. It’s surrounded by beautiful natural countryside and national parks where you can go hiking or take a leisurely drive. Silverwood Café is a great place that’s just next door, the Dayboro Art Gallery is just over the road and the antique and rare-books store, Bohemian Décor, is worthy of a wander too. There is a genuine sense of community and pride in our town’s history.

THREE DAYS IN… AMSTERDAM

Go for the buzzy, post-pandemic restaurant and contemporary art scene, stay for the cool outdoor summer energy

Forego the red-light district and cafés in favour of a different side to the Dutch capital: expect chic hotels, a burgeoning art scene and hip new spots to check out

DAY 1

A maze of 17th- and 18th-century canal houses makes up the Pulitzer Hotel (inset). The buildings might be historic, but the vibe is anything but. After two years of lockdowns, the city is determined to make up for lost time, and the bar buzzes with the sound of people having fun. At the restaurant, Jansz, ask for a window table: it’s a prime spot for watching stylish Amsterdammers going about their days.

WHERE TO SHOP

You’re in the perfect location to explore ‘De 9 Straatjes’ – nowhere is better for vintage shopping. L’Étoile de Saint Honoré on Reestraat is the place for pre-owned luxury accessories, and Bij Ons Vintage on the same street is the go-to for denim and streetwear. If secondhand isn’t your style, the nearby Margriet Nannings outlet store offers great discounts on designers such as Comme des Garçons and Isabel Marant.

DAY 2

You can’t come to Amsterdam and not explore its art collections. The Van Gogh Museum and Rijkmuseum are musts, but don’t skip the Cobra Museum, which hosts exciting contemporary exhibitions (this summer, guest curator Abdelkader Benali explores modern Moroccan art). Once you’ve absorbed enough inspiration, take part in an art workshop at a canal-side studio through the hotel’s Dutch Masters programme. As make-your-own-souvenir experiences go, it’s pretty hard to beat.

WHERE TO EAT

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, refuel at Café-Restaurant Amsterdam (inset), which occupies a vast former pumping station. These days, the stripped-back industrial space is a casual spot where the dress code, like the décor, is utilitarianchic. Seafood is the speciality but the menu is extensive; snack on fresh herring (€4 a plate) while you decide.

DAY 3

Take a walk to the west of the city, where the neighbourhoods make for some of the most culturally diverse areas. Swing by the rediscovered Keith Haring mural (inset) – the largest of his paintings created in Europe – then wander through the leafy Westerpark to the Westergasfabriek, a gasworks that’s now a monumental cultural park, which also plays host to Amsterdam Fashion Week.

WHERE TO DRINK

Not all visitors think to cross the IJ river and explore Amsterdam Noord, but the formerly run-down area has been revived and is now the place for hip locals to shop, eat and drink. The waterfront bar at the architecturally astonishing Eye Film Museum has a great location – ideal for sundowners and views back over central Amsterdam.

Cyprus Modern Art Museum exhibited in Tokat, Turkey

THE first exhibition of the Cyprus Modern Art Museum in Turkey has taken place in the northern city of Tokat.

The exhibition featured 25 works from the Lefkoşabased Near East University (NEU) Faculty of Fine Arts, with NEU Founding Rector Dr Suat Günsel in attendance at the opening of the exhibition.

The opening of the exhibition was also attended by dignitaries from the city of Tokat, with Tokat Mayor Eyüp Eroğlu making a speech at the event.

He told attendees that “the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has always been a very valuable and important place for us”, before going on to speak of the sacrifices made by Turkish soldiers on the island in 1974.

Dr Günsel said in this speech that the TRNC and Turkey “are a whole”.

“Just as Cyprus is important to Turkey, Turkey is also important to Cyprus,” he said. “Our Turkey bestowed a Republic unto us by giving us life, and we as Turkish Cypriots are grateful to you.”

Group Show Highlights ‘Texting’ At West Midtown Gallery

The Fountain Gallery in West Midtown is presenting the group exhibition Texting curated by Suzanne Murphy. The show offers more than 30 works including drawings, paintings, and mixed media installations that all integrate the use of text in one way or another.

One of the most significant works featured is an oil pastel illustration of the late and great Nelson Mandela where his famous quote “It always seems impossible until it is done” is seen at the top. Another highlight of the show is a quirky installation by Davida Adejouma known as Theater of the Absurd where the artist presents a small, open box decorated with an arm and a leg on either side and various knick knacks on the inside depicting what one might see in a circus (i.e. a clown, a gorilla riding an elephant, etc.).

Other notable works in the show are an oil painting by Brenda Faye Collie titled Beautiful Leaf that features poetic text on a white strip of paper that reads “Beautiful leaf on the ground. Silently dying when no one is around.” Susan Baus’ drawing titled Weight of the World depicting a nude woman curled up on the ground with a literal image of the world pressing down upon her with the word “Depression” and on the ground words representing stressful world issues such as “poverty” “homelessness” or “torture” can be seen.

At The End Of The Year: Christmas Means Cultural Beauty

It is a happiness to go shopping during the Christmas season, which the Christmas decoration is one of the most beautiful traditions in history of culture. America has added Santa Claus, with many new updates including Christmas Arlekin. With traditional December snow, the Christmas warms with beauty and calls for beauty during the next year.

However, not every human embraces the beauty as ideal and everyday social practice. There are individuals who even try to make culture without even having no idea what culture is, which goal is demoralization of society, respectively debeautification of humankind. Then, producing and reproducing a beauty is an active defense of humankind today.

One of the crossroads of what is beauty is Lady Gaga in pop culture. Since beauty is a complex category, natural beauty may exist and at the same time bit by ugly personality, so the result would be ugly person. In opposite, beautiful personality and appearance can make non-natural beauty become the greatest cultural beauty. This is what Lady Gaga’s appearance has been attempting with her artistic performance, although Lady Gaga herself misses the physical attractiveness of the standard understanding of a beautiful woman. The absence of enculturated standards of cultural beauty in many creates conflicting situations and ugly situations which have surrounded Lady Gaga.

For example, Lady Gaga was sued for delay of approval of a doll with her image. However, most sensational is the absurd file of the named “artist” Orlan – a French woman with possible problems of personality identity, which she has been compensated with artistic multipersonality. Multipersonality disorder is distributed among both women and men, while as in the case of schizophrenia, cultural therapy may assist the sick person.

The behavior of Orlan in respect to Lady Gaga is absurd, so the last thing that one would guess is that she relates to academic context. The common between Lada Gaga and Orlan is absence of natural physical beauty, although the talented Lady Gaga attempted cultural beauty, while Orlan compensated absence of natural physical beauty and possible multipersonality disorder with building anti-culture of imitation which results is as ugly as the idea of imitation – Is it possible from black to make white? However, Orlan, a multipersonality French woman believes that can be transformed in Mona Liza. This is an example of dehumanization, since the human mind is a rational mind which makes difference between reality and imaginary, between truth and lie, while dehumanized homo brain would mix everything. Orlan is a case to make a dichotomy between biological homo (homo mind) and cultural homo (human mind). Then, human means enculturated homo.

The story of violent Orlan against Lady Gaga comes after an “exhibit” with participation of Orlan in Pushkin Museum in Moscow (2011), in the period of Anna Chapman crisis of Russian spy network in the USA). As it has been well known, Russians have been trying to gain a reputation in the world in weird way in the last years. Most recently, Moscow hosted an exhibit of mixed treasure of Bulgarian national wealth with private finds of Vassil Bozhkov-the Skull, which organizer was the Bulgarian communist spy Bozhidar Dimitrov, who used the status of scholar to have spied on Vatican as invited scholar inside Vatican.

Orlan looks very similar to Bozhidar Dimitrov with her drastic attempt to look “academic” and to have connections with academic world. Although it is funny to look at every Russian’s collaborator as a Russian spy in Europe and the USA, this Orlan is such well represented multipersonality and such thirsty for glory and money, that getting money from everywhere looks very natural for her multipersonality.

And here is coming a strange moment. French Orlan landed in the USA to have resided in LA and New York, NY with an academic connection – Tanya Augsburg from San Francisco State University. The name is very nice combination between typical Russian name (Tanya) and typical Jewish name Augsburg. Why was Tanya interested in Orlan is unclear, but it looks she had to make the academic stage for Orlan in the USA more like upon an order than upon a natural interest (nothing interesting in make-up artist who fights with personal complexes, searching for cultural parameters to run from natural ugliness). Most recently, this Tanya has been writing about man as object. It is Bulgarian criminal communist pseudosecurity (in fact extension of KGB) in which people have been named objects (according to published documents about Plamen Mitev, a “professor” at Sofia University).

Tanya has been an awful teacher and personality at San Francisco University. Her book even as a title is absurd in context of American education (focus on interdisciplinary), since the American education is interdisciplinary by nature and even one cannot get PhD if does not have a published work in a field which has no connections with the direct field of research. In May 2013 she was even described as a “brilliant teacher” at Rate my Professor, but now Rate my Professor is especially not protected by fraud (free access for rating), as this is a website which has been socially abusing even by professors for writing good or bad things about themselves or other people. The last “opinion” is such a contrast to all before and such professionally (no student) written, that obviously it is either a rescue action, or attempting to make a candy for the media for specific reasons. The message was posted in May, while in June 2013 Orlan had filed to sue Lady Gaga.

The people expect from art and culture to make them depart from their boring everydayness. Art is an event and more art in our life means eventness everydayness. However, not every art is really culture of beauty. The personality and products interact and create cultural ugliness or beauty as a result. In 2013 the feminist bitter violence of French Orlan, a pseudoartist-multipersonality and Russian collaborator against American Lady Gaga, a talented singer with cultural beauty, demonstrates that many so-called culture makers are in fact violent money makers without moral and ethics to be in culture at all.

Whether Orlan’s violence is just one of the signs of the invisible war (violent Orlan had asked Lady Gaga for $31 million), in one row with American Snowden and the Bulgarian psychotronic terrorists, only the time will show. It is pity that violent multipersonalities like Orlan trouble talented people without even having opportunity to be sued for violence in global culture. As it is well known the multipersonality disorder cannot be cured. Then, it can be expected other future troubles of innocent people by Orlan. The weird opinion about “Dr” Augsburg at Rate my Professor including the fact that again Guardian.com is engaged with Orlan (in addition with the covering of Dubene-Balinov Gorun Affair and Snowden) indicates that multipersonality Orlan is probably just at the start of other violence activities especially having in mind how thirsty she is for money and for glory being under the umbrella of Putin’s Russia which is most popular with their spies spread everywhere and political pressure on countries like Bulgaria attempting Russian empire. However, Christmas time is a time of beauty and purification. Ugliness may exist around everybody, but if one resists and does not interact, it goes away. Giving a hand to ugliness is a demoralization of society.

The Aloft Harlem hosts Art In FLUX Pop Up Event

In New York, the nights may be getting a little colder lately, but it is not stopping art lovers from coming out and appreciating new collections. It appears like even more than ever that art consumers and spectators want to view painting, photographs and sculptures by veteran and upcoming artists. This shows that an appreciation for beauty an expression never goes out of style.

On the evening of December 3, 2013 Art In FLUX presented two Harlem artists, Andre Woolery and Ruben Natal-San Miguel, in the lobby of Aloft on their dedicated art walls. Aloft has a company-wide commitment to support the local artistic community by devoting space to presenting art. Art In FLUX hopes to utilize the Aloft Harlem space to present unique and compelling exhibits that create conversation and highlight the dynamic contemporary art culture in Harlem.

This inaugural exhibit at Aloft is titled NOTHING IS COLORPROOF after a piece by Andre Woolery of the same name. “Nothing is Colorproof” is a triptych of a gun shooting a swirling rainbow of colors. “A gun represents both chaos and order. In the chaos of my thoughts and ideas, color is the organizing order. It brings clarity to a vision. If my mind were the weapon and my ideas were the bullets… then color would be the force propelling it forward” states Andre. Both Andre and Ruben reflect on culture, race, and gender through their own mediums – paint & pushpins and photography, respectively. They each capture moments in time and exploit the use of color and light to convey a sense of hope. Ruben chronicles Harlem by photographing the people and the architecture that are the fabric of the community. Andre paints iconic images hoping to open our eyes to a new set of possibilities. Together these two artists open a window on our society and awaken our consciousness.
