I also have a YouTube Channel but I haven’t added anything for ages.


I welcome invites to exhibitions, but I can’t promise to attend or write about it. If I do write about it, expect me to write my own opinion of it, this is a website of review and criticism. Please check that it is relevant by reading some of my earlier posts: exhibitions and events outside Melbourne are not relevant.

This blog is not a way to publicize exhibition or send traffic to your website. (See my post An Independent Critic.)

    Many thanks for your illuminating posts on the background and motivation behind the ludicrous Linden raid.

    • Mark Holsworth

      Your welcome. Trying to do what I can – it is a shame that the mainstream media can’t.

  • Lauren Findlay

    Your article on Paul Yore’s charges and the political agendas surrounding the raid at Linden, is amazing. This affirms my suspicions that there was more at play. It’s so good to see support coming his way!

    These charges are unjust to say the least, and comparing him to predators and monsters is making a total mockery of the laws. These political shenanigans are a dangerous game and I am glad that articles are being published that shows it for what it really is: a horrible game.

    So a thank you is in order. I am without words – I cannot express enough how glad I am that you posted this.

    Steps Gallery Ceramics Collection.
    Are you sure the ceramics collection is earnest worthy and boring?
    Noel Flood, wally Curran and the Steggles Brothers had many lengthy discussions around the value of art and a cultural life for workers, if you can picture working in an abattoir. And so the Steps Gallery was established and the ceramics collection was advised by Noel Flood.
    Not only the gallery but other events were held.

    Art expression using the technology of ceramics was greatly influenced by the artists and lecturers of Melbourne State College 1970s – approx. 2000.

    But it’s a bit difficult to tell from your photo.

      If I wrote that the Steps Gallery Ceramics Collection was “earnest, worthy and boring” I am even more sure of that opinion now that I have been lectured about it by you. Thank you for the additional information, I’m sure that I read something like it at the time I wrote the post.
