This is an annual program and the commissions provide ongoing opportunities for artists, foster creative capacity and strongly advocate the artist profession. Unpredictable by nature the Laneway Commissions have grown to become a significant part of Melbourne’s richly layered cultural life. Helen Pynor is in the news again with Breath, a solo show at GV Art in London, a gallery specialising in art-science practice. The exhibition continues until 2 July. The show was reviewed by New Scientist. Her beautiful work, Milk is also currently at the Australian Centre for Photography. Yet more exciting news for Natasha Bieniek - after her sellout show,  she has now been shortlisted for the Redlands Westpac Art Prize Oct-Nov 2011 - what a year it has been so far !
