Catching up with friends was a total delight last weekend when I went south for 5 days. One artist friend Una Rey has been incredibly busy nearing completion of her PhD in Fine Art at Newcastle University. I met Una after commencing a MFA there in 2007. She has juggled family commitments with writing an exegesis and Studio Practice, exhibiting in Melbourne during May at Place Gallery and a final show at the University Gallery coming up soon. Recently Una moved into a wonderful new Studio which I wandered around taking photos on Monday and savouring her paintings again. In the July 09 Art Monthly Australia Una had an article 'Paint: the Language' included which is connected to her current focus for her PhD. Read about the Wonder exhibition by clicking on Una's name above. Best wishes for the final months of hard work Una!
