Yesterday I went to the opening of ‘Harvest’, an exhibition and film program exploring food as a subject for contemporary art. It being held at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) from 28 June to 21 September 2014.
With over 150 works from the Gallery’s Collection, ‘Harvest’ includes magnificent still lifes from the seventeenth century to today, contemporary photography, bold video works, and dramatic large-scale installations, with major new acquisitions of works by Argentine artist Tomás Saraceno.
My favourite pieces were art work by Wei Wei (two above), and this still life.
Afterwards I enjoyed a delicious cheese platter at GOMA Cafe Bistro.
The best bit about this exhibition is that it’s free.

I’ve been thinking about turning my craft journal template into a gardening journal, but haven’t worked out what the best things to record are. Any suggestions?
A journal is a great source of inspiration and reference for your projects. It is useful if you what to look back and remake a project. You can keep track of your swaps, and maintain an inventory of your supplies and tools. Here’s some instructions on how to make your own craft journal.
- Find a folder for your journal and decorate the cover.
- Print off the craft journal template [DOC 130kB] or craft journal template [PDF 84kB]
- Decide if you are going to use plastic sheet protectors, if not punch holes.
- Add some white paper for sketching and some ruled paper for writing in the journal section.
- Decorate the dividers and pages as you wish.
- Don’t forget to add photos and swatches of fabric and yarn.
A funky font to use for the divider pages is rope.
