Glass worked

As we were going to be in Kingston (ACT, not one of the several others around Australia) today Frances suggested we should check out the exhibition at the Canberra Glassworks.  I'm not sure how long that link will take you to the show we saw so the details are:
The Distant Warriors: Ka Maumahara (We Will Remember) Let Us Not Be Forgotten is a special ANZAC Centenary exhibition inspired by the stories of Indigenous Australian and Maori soldiers who fought in the First World War. The exhibition, only at the Canberra Glassworks, honours our fallen and our survivors. 
Basically it was very good.  Many of the works were etched glass and thus hard to photograph (and what follows was taken on my phone).  However I hope these give a bit of a feel for the show.  I didn't note the artists of the individual works (so if you want to know you'll have to visit! The total roll call of artists was
Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Lyndy Delian, Joyce Graham, Allison Hoolihan, Hayley Hoolihan, Lyn Talbot, Jenny Dries from the Australian Capital Territory; Victorian artist Treahna Hamm; and New Zealand Maori weavers Ruth Port and Mandy Sunlight.
