It's been a while since we last had Patricia Piccinini's work featured here.

At any rate, for Australian readers, there's now finally a great chance to see some of her newest pieces (3 previously unseen sculptures) at Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide.

Her new show, Once Upon A Time, opened on Saturday and will remain on show until the end of June.

The exhibition programme seems to be somewhat aimed at a younger audience - with lots of competitions and school holiday events planned - but there is also plenty of movie presentations and talks for more evolved hominoids who believe in contraception. Details here.

There's a special meet and greet event planned for May 14 at 12 PM with the artist speaking about her oeuvre and answering questions.

Oh, and here's your chance to see "The Gathering" again, in case you missed it:

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web can be a lot more useful than ever before.
