As part of the City of Sydney’s Art and About we’ve installed a little piece of Australian iconography in our Art Box. Fresh from Lightning Ridge comes Linda Jackson’s Opal Fossil. The work explores our natural history and evokes a time – 110 million years ago – when the ridge was part of a great inland sea. The relics of this once fertile place are now filled with shimmering rainbow colours reminding us of the once upon a time ferns, mosses, plants, dinosaurs, turtles and other marine life.
And on the walls of the cafe we’ve installed the work of a number of indigenous artists – for sale – just in time for Christmas . This brings us neatly to the question of functions and a new tasting menu designed by chef Andrew Stinear to please your festive palate.
