CULTURAL BITES

EXHIBITION:

The Rocks Push – The Poet & Pugilist Passion

9 January – 6 February

Monday to Friday 10am-7pm, Saturday to Sunday 10am-6pm.

The inaugural pop-up ‘The Rocks Push – The Poet & Pugilist Passion’ is a cross-cultural project that connects the rich, gritty history of the Rocks and art. It’s a community-inclusive space (71 George Street) hosting workshops and paintings by multi-award winning artist, curator and art educator Miriam Cabello.

Visitors will discover that the Rocks was a place of bare-knuckle boxing matches that captivated the imaginations of famous Australian authors Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson. The Rocks Push became famous or infamous as young street gangs produced boxing legends in a fight for survival on Sydney’s streets. From 1890’s featherweight champion “Young Griffo” to ‘Father of Australian Boxing’ and captain of the Green Push, Larry Foley. These tales of the Rocks’ history will inspire and play muse to daily workshops and new paintings.

Over four weeks the pop-up’s street-front window will play host to Miriam as she creates a new painting. Day by day the public will be able to peer into the creative process and see each stroke as she brings her artwork to life. Sydneysiders and tourists are also invited to view demonstrations and participate in short, creative painting workshops.

WORKSHOPS:

Colour your lunchtime at the Rocks

Sign up and colour your lunchtime at the Rocks with Miriam Cabello’s colorful, free, fun filled demonstrations on The Art of Colour. The nine workshops (Hue, Value, Chroma, Colour as Mood, Colour as Symbol, Colour as Space, Colour as Light and Movement, Colour as Form, The Artists Palette) will take you on a journey of discovering the range of colour sensations and the three dimensions: hue, value intensity. Each session will be a new summer sensation.

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during 13-31 Jan

12.30-1 pm

In these workshops students will learn how to tap into the creative process and examine paintings behind the scenes research. We will explore painting, idea development and visual storytelling with the Rocks as our muse. No painting experience needed. Just bring your creative spirit.
