This will be the last post for a few weeks over the Christmas  and New Year break. As always you can find me on Twitter and Facebook where I will post anything of interest I spot over the break. Below are some last opportunities for the year, and good luck to anyone squeezing job, funding application and abstract writing into their festive period. I want to thank everyone for reading, commenting, subscribing and sharing posts. It is honestly a pleasure to have spent another year highlighting the many and varied events, exhibitions, publications focused on art and art history happening in Melbourne and around Australia.

See you in 2017!
