Nature's Voice in the Journey is a photographic exhibition by local photographer Gaynor Hartley.

Gaynor's theme for this exhibition is 'don't forget to stop and smell the roses'.

Nature's voice in the Journey exhibition is a deliberate mix of familar scenes, images, and an artistic interpretation of plants and flora.  The names on the works are from the artist's viewpoint, but everything is open for interpretation.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Things easy on the eye and familar, and then others that invite the viewer to take a closer look.  It is about life, some of the treasures yet to be discovered are in the detail, and in taking the time to find them.

Arj Barker - Get In My Head

What are you waiting for? Hop on in and let?s ride. There's plenty of room in here. Join me and together we'll contemplate everything from the social evolution of humanity, to the intriguing and elusive nature of non-sexually derived boners. I'll even mention fondue at some point, and that's a promise. So take a load off your mind and get into mine already! Arj Barker is arguably Australia's favourite American comedian. In recent years he has spent more time in our country than his own and has come to understand our culture perhaps better than we understand it ourselves. His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.
