Jimmy Rix recently installed his third public commission in Sydney. This time he was commissioned by New South Wales Transport for a large scale sculpture for the newly opened Light Rail Network in Sydney's Inner West. Rix's sculpture titled "Whistle Stop", stands at the entrance of the Hawthorne stop in Leichhardt. Constructed of steel and recycled railway tracks from the old goods line from the area, it is a collossus which stands 7 meters high and 8 meters in length.

Sally Duhig's exhibition, Dead Bird Diary, will be at Woolloongabba Art Gallery from Tuesday 3rd March - 14th March, 2015. Sally has been collecting dead birds for some time and making a dead bird diary. With both pathos and humour the drawings, paintings and sculptures in the exhibition consider the birds' deaths and their future. The Dead Bird Diary has become a collaborative project where 35 people have become involved in making contributions. Empathy draws these people together who, like Sally, find birds beautiful, free and fascinating but also find them fascinating to look at when they are still.
