OCTOBER’S EXCE LLENT EVENTS
WALK THE LINE
Maree Azzopardi’s first solo exhibition with the Smith & Hall gal-

Australian landscape as a metaphor for her interior dialogues and
emotional states. Slightly dark, the works include text based on
Johnny Cash’s album I Walk the Line, symbolic of the artist’s past
year in the studio. On show October 12-23 . Go to smithandhall.
