the reading room :: e-newsletter #38

Hi all,

So, this week SALA starts filling up Adelaide with beautiful, strange, amazing art by South Australian Living Artists. We have one of those lovely people opening their show this Friday. Meg Cowell's photographic exhibition To The Surface opens at 6pm Friday 5th August. Hope to see you all there.

Our other big thing: there's only 9 days left for our fundraiser to reach our target. You've been thinking about it, but you keep forgetting? You really needed to buy those new stonewash denim overalls? Maybe you're still searching through the gaps in the couch for some loose change? Whatever it is, now is the time to pledge your $$ It really doesn't have to much - we have on $249 to go. Dig deep kids - we really need your help!

Here's what's coming up at the reading room...

:: Wednesday 3rd August ::
Monthly meeting of the Adelaide Feminists Reading Group.
This month's discussion: Is it possible for a society to exist without gender? Would our civilisation be radically different without it? That's what we'll be discussing this month as we read Ursula K. LeGuin's 1969 classic 'The Left Hand of Darkness'. As well as being an all-round favourite with sci-fi readers, it's also credited with being the first feminist science fiction novel.

To The Surface :: SALA Exhibition by Meg Cowell
Our SALA show is by the wonderful Meg Cowell - the first artist to exhibit at the reading room 1 year ago!
These portraits feature varyingly ambiguous garments and items of fabric. Light catches a tiny constellation of bubbles. Dark water creatures waft to the surface.
