ARCHIBALD, WYNNE, AND SULMAN PRIZES FOR ART 2017, IN AUSTRALIA AT THE ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES

September 1, 2017

ARCHIBALD, WYNNE, AND SULMAN PRIZES FOR ART 2017, IN AUSTRALIA AT THE ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES

 

The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes is an annual exhibition eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.

The Archibald Prize, first awarded in 1921, is Australia’s favorite art award, and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.

The Wynne Prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture, while the Sulman Prize is given to the best subject painting, genre painting or mural project in oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media.

 

 

HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF THIS EXHIBITION;

HOKUSAI – AN EXHIBITION AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

HOKUSAI – AN EXHIBITION AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

 

The first major presentation in Australia of one of Japan’s most influential, prolific and everlastingly popular artists, Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849), the National Gallery of Victoria presents Hokusaifrom 21 July 2017.

The exhibition curator Dr Wayne Crothers, who is Senior Curator, Asian Art, at the NGV,  argues it would difficult to overestimate the impact of Hokusai’s work on world art. “Within fifteen years of his death Hokusai was influencing European modern thinkers, musicians and artists. His woodblock prints were at the forefront of reshaping the conventions in European painting and influencing the foundations of modern art and design with artists like Monet, Degas, Gauguin and Van Gogh all praising his great talent. In this context Hokusai can be seen as possibly the first truly global artist. At that time Asian styles were known in Europe but he was almost certainly the first recognised Asian artist.”

An influential master of Japanese manga and a self-proclaimed ‘drawing maniac’, Hokusai produced a body of work comprising some of the most recognisable and reproduced images in the history of Asian art, most notably The great wave. Spanning the artist’s entire career, Hokusai will include more than 175 works by the artist, comprising woodblock prints, rare paintings on silk never-before-seen in Australia and hand-printed manga (illustrated books).

“Katsushika Hokusai is considered one of Japan’s greatest and enduringly popular artists. His moving and dramatic compositions, including The great wave, show the coexistence between humanity and the awesome power of nature, a relationship that is as relevant today as it was in the nineteenth century,” said Tony Ellwood, Director NGV.

SOLDIERS’ AND SAILORS’ MONUMENT – NEW YORK CITY – MEMORIAL DAY – MAY 29 2017

May 29, 2017

SOLDIERS’ AND SAILORS’ MONUMENT – NEW YORK CITY – MEMORIAL DAY – MAY 29 2017

This year the annual Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Memorial Day Observance was held on Monday, May 29, 2017 from 10 A.M. to 12 Noon on 89th Street & Riverside Drive in Riverside Park.

This year’s event will commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Event is free and was open to the public.

In conjunction with New York Fleet Week, active duty Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen also participated. At 10:00 am, the United States Navy Band  performed a musical prelude.

The Procession set off at 10:30 am, and was led by the New York Scottish Pipes and Drums, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in period uniforms, and the Veteran Corps of Artillery. In addition, there will be numerous dignitaries and elected officials joining us at this ceremony.

The West Side Federation is proud to have been the first community organization to provide seed money to help support the renovation of the Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument project – and will continue to help this effort.


RIVERSIDE PARK

SOLDIERS’ AND SAILORS’ MONUMENT

This temple-like monument located on a promontory along Riverside Drive at West 89th Street commemorates Union Army soldiers and sailors who served in the Civil War. An elegant example of the City Beautiful movement, it was designed by the Stoughton brothers, engineer Charles W. (1860–1944) and architect Arthur A. Stoughton (1867–1955), who won a public competition with a design inspired by Greek antiquity. It was designated a municipal landmark in 1976.

A cylindrical form of white marble with 12 Corinthian columns, it is capped with richly carved ornament of eagles and cartouches. The design was based upon the ancient Choragic monument of Lysicrates (4th c. BC) in Athens, an iconic form used during the Greek Revival in 19th century America. Standing at 100 feet, it is larger in scale than the relic it imitates. The plinths that stand atop the south stair list the New York volunteer regiments that served during the war, as well as the Union generals and the battles they led. The ornament was sculpted by Paul E. Duboy (better known for his work on the Ansonia). Several features were never realized, including a pathway down to the Hudson and a more developed plaza area to the south of the monument.

Commissioned by the State of New York in 1893, the competition was held in 1897 and the first stone was laid in January 1900, with Governor Theodore Roosevelt officiating. On Memorial Day 1902 (then called ‘Decoration Day’), the monument was unveiled following a parade of Civil War veterans up Riverside Drive to the site. For many years the project was delayed because the City could not agree on a site for the monument. The initial location at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street was vetoed by the newly formed Municipal Art Society, followed by a host of other suggestions – Union Square and the Battery among them – each one supported by their own loyal factions and reasons. Eventually it was sited along the axis of Riverside Drive, looking south and out toward the Hudson River, a more diminutive companion piece to Grant’s Tomb located two miles north. By the First World War, the Soldiers and Sailors Monument had become part of a promenade of classically-inspired monuments that punctuate the rim of Riverside Drive, set against the naturalistic backdrop of Riverside Park and the river beyond.

In the early 1960’s, the City spent over $1 million in extensive repairs to the monument, including a new roof. Now fifty years later, it awaits funding to repair loosened joints, chipped stone, and the damage generally wrought by time if not vandalism.

For decades the monument was the terminus of the Memorial Day Parade and each year hosts an annual Memorial Day observance.


 

“Earlier in the day, hundreds of people gathered in a cold rain at the 113-year-old Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument on the Upper West Side to mark Memorial Day.

Groups including the American World War Two Orphan’s Network and the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War presented wreaths at the foot of the monument to honor their fallen parents.

“My father is buried in Belgium,” said 73-year-old Nancy Morrell. Her father was killed in World War II. “I was one-and-a half, so I didn’t really know him but you don’t have know someone to feel that impact.”

The monument was built to honor Union soldiers who died in the Civil War, according to the Riverside Park Conservancy. But it now stands as a memorial for all service men and women who “have given their lives. ”  May 29, 2017 · by Sarah Gonzalez      WNYC NEWS

DISCOVERY CRUISE MAP TO THE LAU ISLANDS

Culture and traditions have been preserved along with a fascinating history where the chiefs of Lau ruled most of Fiji. The Lau islands have a unique Geology made up limestone that has been eroded by the elements into dramatic islets and arches.

Because the Lau Group sits between Fiji and Tonga, the islands are an intriguing mix of both cultures. People wear Tongan-style straw mats around their waists, and the rounded shape of the houses is more Tongan than Fijian in style. There are also Tongan influences in names, language and food.

HISTORY

The British explorer James Cook reached Vatoa in 1774. By the time of the discovery of the Ono Group in 1820, the Lau archipelago was the most mapped area of Fiji.

Political unity came late to the Lau Islands. Historically, they comprised three territories: the Northern Lau Islands, the Southern Lau Islands, and the Moala Islands. Around 1855, the renegade Tongan prince Enele Ma’afu conquered the region and established a unified administration. Calling himself the Tui Lau, or King of Lau, he promulgated a constitution and encouraged the establishment of Christian missions. The first missionaries had arrived at Lakeba in 1830, but had been expelled. The Tui Nayau, who had been the nominal overlord of the Lau Islands, became subject to Ma’afu.

The Tui Nayau and Tui Lau titles came into personal union in 1969, when Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara, who had already been installed as Tui Lau in 1963 by the Yavusa Tonga, was also installed as Tui Nayau following the death of his father Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba III in 1966. The title Tui Lau was left vacant from his uncle, Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna, in 1958 as referenced in Mara, The Pacific Way Paper.

The Northern Lau Islands, which extended as far south as Tuvuca, were under the overlordship of Taveuni and paid tribute to the Tui Cakau (Paramount Chief of Cakaudrove). In 1855, however, Ma’afu gained sovereignty over Northern Lau, establishing Lomaloma, on Vanua Balavu, as his capital.

The Southern Lau Islands extended from Ono-i-Lau, in the far south, to as far north as Cicia. They were the traditional chiefdom of the Tui Nayau, but with Ma’afu’s conquest in the 1850s, he became subject to Tongan supremacy.

The Moala Islands had closer affiliation with Bau Island and Lomaiviti than with Lau, but Ma’afu’s conquest united them with the Lau Islands. They have remained administratively a part of the Lau Province ever since.

CULTURE AND ECONOMY

Since they lie between Melanesian Fiji and Polynesian Tonga, the Lau Islands are a meeting point of the two cultural spheres. Lauan villages remain very traditional, and the islands’ inhabitants are renowned for their wood carving and Masi paintings. Lakeba especially was a traditional meeting place between Tongans and Fijians. The south-east trade winds allowed sailors to travel from Tonga to Fiji, but much harder to return. The Lau Island culture became more Fijian rather than Polynesian beginning around 500 BC.However, Tongan influence can still be found in names, language, food, and architecture. Unlike the square-shaped ends characterizing most houses elsewhere in Fiji, Lauan houses tend to be rounded, following the Tongan practice.

In early July 2014, Tonga’s Lands Minister, Lord Maʻafu Tukuiʻaulahi, revealed a proposal for Tonga to give the disputed Minerva Reefs to Fiji in exchange for the Lau Group. At the time that news of the proposal first broke, it had not yet been discussed with the Lau Provincial Council. Many Lauans have Tongan ancestors and some Tongans have Lauan ancestors; Tonga’s Lands Minister is named after Enele Ma’afu, the Tongan Prince who originally claimed parts of Lau for Tonga. Historically, the Minerva Reefs have been part of the fishing grounds belonging to the people of Ono-i-Lau, an island in the Lau Group.

Just off the island of Vanua Balavu at Lomaloma was the Yanuyanu Island Resort, built to encourage tourism in what has been a less accessible area of Fiji, but the small resort failed almost immediately and has been abandoned since the year 2000. An airstrip is located off Malaka village and a port is also located on Vanua Balavu, at Lomaloma. There are guest houses on Vanua Balavu and on Lakeba, the other principal island.

The Lau Islands are the center of the game of Cricket in Fiji. Cricket is the most popular team sport in Lau, unlike the rest of the country where Rugby and Association Football are preferred. The national team is invariably dominated by Lauan players.


 

Lautoka, Fiji

The city of Lautoka is situated on the northwest coast of the island of Viti Levu. The second-largest city of Fiji, Lautoka serves an important sugar cane-growing district and is the country’s leading sugar export port. As a place with a vibrant population and a colorful life, the cultural lifestyle of the people here is worth exploring. The natural wonders of Lautoka, Fiji are just as outstanding. The dancing waves of the sea, the sandy beaches, and the waving trees all are there to offer you a refreshing and memorable visit.

According to legend, Fiji’s second-largest city derives its name from a battle cry that means ‘spear-hit’. The story goes that when an argument erupted between two local chiefs, one cried out the words lau toka as he killed the other by spearing him through the chest, simultaneously stating the obvious and naming the location.

Lautoka’s recent history is entwined with the fortunes of sugar, which gives rise to its other name, Sugar City.

Lautoka doesn’t have much to detain travelers, but it is a pleasant enough spot with wide streets steeped in foliage, a picturesque esplanade, a couple of decent cafes and the backdrop of Mt Koroyanitu (Mt Evans) to remind everyone that the urban reaches are well and truly finite.

Since 1970, the population of Lautoka has grown rapidly, and in the last twenty years it has also changed dramatically in structure. In the early 1970s the population was estimated to be about 12,000, the vast majority of inhabitants being Indian, as would be expected considering the early growth of the city was entirely associated with the sugar industry. almost all of the present Indian inhabitants are descendants of the early Girmityas. In 1986 the population was 39,000 and in 1996 almost 43,000, but it is not clear exactly how the boundaries of the urban area were defined at either of these censuses. In 2005 the population including the suburban zones was probably about 50,000, occupying a total area of about 16 km². The population of Lautoka including the rural districts is around 80,000. But much of the recent growth of the city itself has been due to indigenous Fijians moving into the urban area.

Port of Lautoka is the main maritime gateway for western Viti Levu and is the second largest port in Fiji. The port is mainly used for bulk sugar, molasses, woodchips, petroleum, and gas. The port is also used for cruises, Blue Lagoon Cruises and Nai’s Cruises are based here.

Lautoka is served by Pacific Transport and Sunbeam buses. Pacific Transport connects Lautoka directly to Nadi Intl Airport and Ba  Sunbeam runs 8 times daily Queen’s Highway Service, linking Lautoka to Suva with stops at Nadi International Airport, Nadi Town, Fijian (Shangri – La) Resort, Sigatoka Town, Abua Sands, Hideaway Resort, Naviti Resort, Korolevu, Warwick Resorts, Beach House, Crusoes Retreat Junction, Deuba Inn and Tradewinds Lami.
