Bald Archy Prize.
Created in 1994 as a spoof of that more serious competition, the Bald Archy Prize provides artists of all styles and standards with a genuine opportunity, ranging from the hilarious to the bizarrely vulgar, to create portrait paintings of humour, dark satire, light comedy or caricature.
Now known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude, the satirical side of this event has its basis in the irreverent, larrikin Australian comic comment, with great appeal to people from all walks of life, the reason why the exhibition of finalists keeps breaking attendance records wherever it is shown.
On now until 11 March at the Watson Arts Centre,
1 Aspinall Street, Watson
Daily: 10am – 4.00pm.
Cool off before things get heated with EXPRESS THURSDAY. $10 cocktails all (k)night for good times guaranteed. See you soon x #thirstythursday 🐝🍯🍸🍹🍾🥃🍷☕️

THE SPIRITS OF THE PUMPKINS DESCENDED INTO THE HEAVENS 🖌
A taste of long afternoons on the Amalfi, via Shibuya. XO’s Japerol Spritz is a distinctly Asian twist on the European summer classic that has been a clear favourite of our cocktail menu from day 1. Yuzushu – a vibrant 50/50 sake blend – takes the place of Prosecco, balanced by a dash of Aperol, a splash of soda and a fresh squeeze of orange.
And again with the monochrome! It's always an exciting moment when boxes arrive from Melbourne knitwear label MMSöhn and Melbourne/New York hybrid label Kin. This is Kin's super cool and comfortable organic cotton ruffle dress - it's sleeveless but there's no need to worry about your arms when you can throw an MMSöhn 'Small Dot' mercerised cotton cardi in salt + pepper over it. Perfect together! Finished with Olive +Tiger 'Presley' necklace and Elk 'Fala' drop earrings.

This piece reflects on how humanity spends so much time, effort and money to outer space ventures while over here, on our natural home we are still ‘aliens’ between us. Lately even more so as people get absorbed in social media and more alienated from each other fighting fabricated wars and invisible enemies. We live in a beautiful home surrounded by amazing creatures, we should first find ways to coexist, communicate and take care of each other and our nature before trying to find other forms of life we can mess with - Theo Kontaxis .
