Andrew Finnies altenate vision of Hansel and Gretal from the witches view of the situation.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the exhibition Happily Ever After. This exhibition travels to Mackay in July and will close here in Newcastle on Sunday 26th of June. The curators Helen Hopcroft and Caelli Jo Brooker have co-ordinated a gargantuan project and are currently applying for more funding to tour the show further afield.... and maybe even to Japan. We will keep our fingers crossed for them.

The list of ex-students and staff in this exhibition include Jane Robinson, Andrew Finnie, Rhonda Partridge, Ileana Clarke, Gianna Fallavolita, Lezlie Tilley, Gillean Shaw and Alisan Smith.
