The National Gallery brought together a set of works in their Australian area to reflect the great gifts and varieties of artists who recorded aspects of the experience of World War One.
The blurb for this reads: This powerful exhibition addresses wartime propaganda, front-line experience and remembrance through paintings, drawings and prints by Official War Artists, combatants and women. It also features a special focus on the remarkable artist Will Dyson.
The works range from standard historical recording of historical events and people to extremely brutal representations of the violence of war.

The current exhibition at Megalo features posters made by and for community groups. The posters are half the exhibition and the other half is of pictures of people involved in the processes of learning how and producing the posters.. There is a simple vitality about both parts of the exhibition.

Suzanne Moss creates shimmering pastel geometric artworks. The variegated pale pastel works are intersected with varied geometric triangles, oblongs, squares and other geometric shapes The choice of pale pastels makes viewing an activity that requires concentration. The choice of hanging the works on white walls was interesting. I tried to imagine what impact it would make to put them on a strong coloured wall.
Below is the gallery sheet and some pics but there is special depth and excitement in viewing them in a gallery.
