Riding the boundary between public and private

Dear Gilbert,

We'd be happy to support your ARTcycle project - it certainly ties in with Rider Spoke and our interest in cycles as a platform for art and performance.


I look forward to hearing back from you and best of luck with ARTcycle.

all the best

Artists Selected and notified

Dear Artists,

We are happy to inform you that your work has been accepted for participation in "Sketching The Gamut".  Below are important dates and instructions for participation.  This exhibition is only up for a single week and so our install process is going to be tight.  We ask that you deliver you work on time, or, if that is not possible, to arrange for it to be delivered on time so that we can put the exhibition together in this short time frame. 

We would also like to invite all the artists involved in Sketching The Gamut to participate in the latest Tour The Green Ring.  These are bicycle tours of portions of The Green Ring to give people a chance to experience it first hand.  The rides will take place this Sunday, weather permitting.

If you are able to attend, these are the two tours scheduled for Sunday.  Could you please email Gilbert Grace on info(at) to let him know you are coming.

Ride 3: Meet 9:45am for 10am departure. Wolli Creek to Summer Hill.
Ride 4: Meet 1:15pm for 1:30 departure. Summer Hill to Sydney Town Hall
