This week sees the start of August, which means the year is traveling at high speeds!

Here is a little bit of information to whet the palate about August..

August is the eighth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days.
In the Southern Hemisphere, August is the seasonal equivalent of February in the Northern Hemisphere.
In common years no other month starts on the same day of the week as August, though in leap years February starts on the same day.
August ends on the same day of the week as November every year.

Have a great week and enjoy the art scene in Sydney.

If you want any shows or information listed on the blog then please send us an email with all the details including any images you may have.
