We're All Mad Here - Espionage Gallery

Hi all, about 3 months ago, Rachael and I put on our stripy socks and chased the White Rabbit all the way over to Adelaide for an adventure to Espionage Gallery to see the Exhibition 'We're All Mad Here'.

Our morning started by walking through Rymill Park only to find.... an Alice in Wonderland Statue!

What were the chances? After many photos and gasps of excitement we found a cute little cafe to have breakfast by the lake. With freshly squeezed orange juice in jars, and little row boats for hire, we knew this was turning out to be a true Wonderland Adventure!

Rymill Park Adventures

The Gallery still didn't open for another couple of hours, so we strolled the streets and found a lovely little op shop. And yes, there amongst the checkered floor and tea sets... was a tile with an Alice print. SOLD!

I just LOVE it!
So did we ever make it to the Gallery? Yes! Guarding the entrance were these cool paste-ups, then after travelling up some stairs an awesome painted door.

There was good art and Amazing art and some in bewteen. Ranging from established artists to fresh new faces. Overall it was great to see so many different takes and ideas on the wonderful adventure Alice had.
There was one print that caught our eye and both Rachael and I could not resist having our very own print. Unfortunately my print arrived a little bent in the mail, but I still love her!

Illustrated by the talented Elisa Mazzone
Check out more of her work here www.elisamazzone.com.au

And so that concludes our little adventure, hope you enjoyed the tour!

Robert Ingpen - Book Review

Robert Ingpen has Illustrated many classic stories such as, The Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan, along with many other books. Born in Australia in 1936, he is known for his "lasting contribution to children's literature" and won international awards.

Alice's fan's are lucky enough to have the renowned Ingpen pick up his pencils and brushes to create his own version of Alice and her adventures, that was then published in 2009.

 His delicate illustrations come to life as we meet each character while following Alice through Wonderland. While I sometimes question Alice's hair, I think it also somewhat fitting. With the pool of tears and all that growing and shrinking, who wouldn't have frizzy hair?

I just love this chubby little caterpillar!

You simply must check out this version!

Alice in the TATE Gallery

 Alice in Wonderland Exhibition banner
Well yes, the exhibition is all over, and I unfortunately was unable to go as I live in Australia, (devastated because it looks ammazzinngg!) but there is still fun to be had!

While I can't write a review about the exhibition, there is still a myriad of information and fun facts to sift through! Just visit this link http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-liverpool/exhibition/alice-wonderland

But wait, there's more! A Science vs Art game for kids (ahem, and adults alike)
It has info for kids on the science and learning side of things, but for Alice fans out there like me, there's a wonderland game YAY!... It's called Wondermind

Here's a sneaky peak....
Each area has a different game
The Forest - Where Alice had to catch as many white rabbits as she can
The Tea Party - Line up the pipes to pour tea into matching cups
The Garden - Match the playing cards
and last but not least...
The Hedge Maze - Place mirrors correctly and shine light to find the Cheshire Cat
Go on, Have a go! I know you want to!!

Have fun
