Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 12th 2008
30 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 13, 2008 MB Alive Hamming it up 32 Next stop? 31 DINING 31 TOP NOSH 32 WHAT'S ON 33 Exhibition is just sublime A NEW exhibition featuring artworks inspired by the Blue Mountains will open at the Armory Gallery in Sydney Olympic Park this Saturday. Sublime Elevations is a free exhibition which will showcase the work of more than 50 artists from the Blue Mountains Artists Company. ''With geography that moves from 200m to 1000m above sea- level, the landscape, mood and tone of the mountains changes dramatically,'' curator Sophie Seeger said. ''Sublime Elevations is a sample of the diversity and strength of Blue Mountains artists . . . the genre and subject matter is hugely diverse, from the landscape to the figurative and abstract.'' The exhibition includes paintings, installations, photography, woven sculptures and hand-made designer glass jewellery. Artists include award- winning photographer Peter Adams and water colourist John Caldwell. Sublime Elevations is open every weekend from 9am to 5pm until January 25. The gallery is near the wharf entrance on the Parramatta River at Building 18.

PACK a hamper full of goodies and head to Sydney Olympic Park this Sunday to celebrate World Picnic Day. The free event will be held at the Newington Armory from 10am to 3pm. Families can enjoy plenty of old- fashioned fun including egg-and- spoon races and sack races or grab a pal and take part in a three- legged race. Visitors can also burn off the picnic calories by hiring a bike or taking a frisbee lesson. Other attractions include a jumping castle, international food stalls, cultural performers and an art exhibition. But what does the perfect picnic hamper consist of? One person with a few suggestions is Rita Viscontini from Cucina Viscontini deli/cafe in Homebush Bay which sells hampers for every occasion. ''Cold meats such as salami are a must and different types of cheese,'' she said. ''We also put in different dips like babaganoush and crackers and fresh seasonal fruit for dessert. ''Adults might want to bring along bottle of wine. ''Children are a bit harder to cater for but they'll eat chips and dips and things like schnitzels always go down well.''

Mums and dads are asked to gather at Jamieson St at 10.30am with the walk starting at 11am.
