Congrats to our publishing team of David Simpson and Sarah Pepperle for a night of bests at the Museums Australasia Publication Design Awards at a gala event in Alice Springs last night. The Gallery won best magazine (Bulletin), best book (Us v Them: Tony de Lautour), best children's book (ART-TASTIC) and best in show (Us v Them)!
I inherited a love of art from my mother. I am lucky enough to own my favourite pieces of art that hang proudly in our home. They are an Elizabeth Thomson from the Astrophysics series and a very early Karl Maughan. My wife bullied me to join the Foundation in 2008, and low and behold I actually enjoy being a part of it! I love the success of the Foundation and contributing to it – it’s been good fun.
