I love the word 'Novocastria' and its variations, especially the word 'Novocastrian' to describe an inhabitant of Newcastle. And this upcoming exhibition about Novocastria at the Newcastle Art Gallery (NAG) is very exciting.


There are some beautiful and fascinating pieces, many of them dealing with issues of our colonial past, including an intriguing series by Rew Hanks (represented by Watters Gallery - have a look at some of his work: http://www.wattersgallery.com/artists/HANKS/2013/Hanks2013.html):
