Had a few days in Melbourne last week visiting galleries and eating lovely food.
It was wonderful to see the works of Jo Davenport at Flinders Lane Gallery in the flesh.
See the following link of Jo talking about her work:
Also a highlight was the John Wolseley show.

How can anyone not love this man?
What I really enjoy about his work besides his dedication and total immersion, is that its all about process and understanding, rather than end result to satisfy a perceived market.
Our short stay also coincided with the Melbourne city Art Night out whereby all the city gallery spaces were open (and we had a map!) to explore a number of hidden art spaces tucked away in the bowels and crevices of old city buildings and lane ways. Fun.. (Did I feel like I was perhaps a doting parent of the exhibiting artists ...yes)
