The Third Ever Blue Oyster International Art Fair

The Blue Oyster Arts Trust is pleased to announce the return of the infamous and highly competitive Blue Oyster International Art Fair. Running for the third time ever, the Blue Oyster International Art Fair is one of the most highly anticipated events across the globe. Featuring 10 artworks by 10 internationally renowned artists, don't miss your chance to collect a one-off work of art at the ludicrous price of only $500 each.

How the Fair works: Simply place your name beside an artwork to go into the draw to purchase it. You may enter the draw for as many works as you are interested in but you may win only one. Entries for all works will close at 7.00pm and the winners will be drawn at 7.30pm. Works can only be purchased on the night, so you'll have to be in to win!

Two limited edition t-shirts designed by Catherine Griffiths will also be available to purchase for $50 each, designed in celebration of reaching our 15th year. T-shirts will be available to purchase in a range of sizes over the evening and at the Blue Oyster from this Monday 31 March.

Funds raised will go to towards the facilitation of the Blue Oyster Art Project Space 2014 Programme of art projects, as well as the launching of our new website in mid-2014.

The Blue Oyster Arts Trust acknowledges the support of the 10 contributing artists, Studio Catherine Griffiths, Salisbury Boutique, Bellamys Gallery and Dancing Water Vineyard.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
