Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 1st 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 2, 2009 13 NEWS Glamour portrait ROD BENNETT Virginia Judge by Seaforth artist Kathryn Longhurst. Calling art buffs Tell us what you think of this portrait at www. innerwestweekly.com.au WEseethemallthetime. . . politicians love having their picture taken. But now Portrait Artists Australia has put them on canvas for longer-lasting public appreciation. Its latest exhibition is called Parliament Objects, and depicts our pollies with objects of significance in their lives. The exhibition is in the Fountain Court of Parlia- ment House in Macquarie St.The peninsula is rep- resented in the mix of work by 20 artists by Seaforth painter Kathryn Longhurst. ''I chose the glamorous one, Virginia Judge. That's why I chose her,'' Longhurst said. Ms Judge is Strathfield State Labor MP and Fair Trading and Citizenship Minister, and assists the Premier with the Arts port- folio. ''I painted her with the piano at Parliament House,'' Longhurst said. ''Virginia has a degree in music and she plays the piano.'' The exhibition ends at the end of April, by which time, Longhurst is hoping, her work will have been bought. ''She (Ms Judge) has been painted many times, includ- ing for the Archibald Prize, and she has never bought one of the works,'' she said. ''But you never know, mine might be the one she cannot live without.'' Longhurst described poli- ticians as incredibly busy, and while five three-hour sittings for the portrait was out of the question, a certain amount of sitting needed to be allocated. ''I both sketch and paint during our meeting,'' Longhurst said. ''I also take hundreds of photographs.'' 2030406i iww wk40 LAMB GRILLING CHOPS $7.99 kg BOBBY VEAL CALVES WHOLE OR SIDES AV 20KG AVAILABLE WHILE STOCKS LAST $3.99 kg CHICKEN WINGS 2KG $5.00 LEAN LOIN PORK CHOPS 2KG $18.00 LEAN. 100% PURE BEEF MINCED STEAK $4.99 kg LAMB LOIN.
