The MMT is currently exhibiting: ‘Beach Couture: A Haute Mess’ by Marina DeBris. This exhibition is most timely, given the current ABC War on Waste Campaign.

Plastic pollution has become ubiquitous in our oceans and on our shores. Sydney-based artist Marina DeBris transforms garbage found in the ocean or washed up on the beach into intricately constructed garments. She is a campaigner against ocean pollution and hopes through her art she can show how ‘the waste we create keeps coming back to haunt us’.  This fascinating exhibition also incorporates works from an art & science collaboration on the impact of microplastics in our oceans, with works by Dr Jennifer Lavers, Annalise Rees, Katherine Cooper, Di Masters, Peter Walsh, and Sophie Carnell.

The exhibition is open every day in our magnificent Carnegie Gallery from 9 to 5 until early September.

KINGSTON FUN RUN – Postponed until Sunday 23 September 2018

I hope your community have coped well with recent flooding. 

Due to the impact of flooding across the trail set as the Kingston Fun Run it has been decided to postpone this event until Sunday the  23rd of September 2018. This choice was made in  consultation with Police, SES, Kingborough Council, Running Calendars and the Rotary Club of Kingston. We look forward to your participation in September. 

Cheers  Annette Psereckis
