PLUS!! News just in:
This edition of Artlink will be launched by septuagenarian Newtown artist David Urqhuart !
David Urquhart was born in Kings Cross, Sydney, grew up in Homebush with the smells of the cattle yards a daily delight. He went to school, but was not educated, at Catholic schools.
David began his respectable working life in the rag trade, including selling bras and girdles for The Jenyns Patent Corset Company.
As was fashionable in 1968 he turned his back on his wicked capitalist ways and â€˜dropped outâ€™ and joined the marginal people.
As a graduate of Sydney College of the Arts, David imagines himself to be an artist.
David will ruminate briefly about the multiplicity of “undergrounds” he’s experienced over the years, before raising a glass to toast this new edition of Artlink Magazine !
