I have a really good excuse for not posting much lately. The region that I live in has been flooded. So I had to evacuate for a few days while the danger of being flooded passed. Thankfully the river that passes through Maitland didn’t rise as high as expected and my home stayed dry, but a lot of rural and lower lying homes went under.
So, the usual art news should resume tomorrow. Here’s some photos of the Maitland floods and Newcastle storms that were submitted by listeners to the ABC radio here.
