Art enthusiast. Loves painting, bushwalking and travels. Writing what I love sparks my passion. Sydney, Australia.
There are different kinds of exhibitions in Balmain, ranging from contemporary arts, photographs through to old-time swimwear. What a great opportunity to indulge yourselves into a world of creativity. Adding to this, some of these exhibitions run at the historical buildings, making your experience more interesting.
Balmain is a lovely suburb where you can come over by just taking a short hop across the harbour from the city, or walking up the hill into the village after getting off the ferry at the foot of Darling Street.

2. The 'Be Alert, But Not Alarmed' Exhibition
The exhibition presents the paintings and digital works by Sydney artist Guy Porter. The artist's works are interesting and different. One of his works such as I'll Get You A10 Tank Killer, which shows a dragon chasing a fixed-wing aircraft, depicts the humorous side of his work but the subject is indeed serious and thought-provoking.
The 'Be Alert, But Not Alarmed' Exhibition is currently showing at Breathing Colours Gallery
