AT LAST the news you have been waiting for !  The announcement of the theme for the annual CCAS Member’s Show. Its almost the funnest night of the year and in previous years beset with controversy as the members clamber to outdo each other. Someone invariably outdoes … and previous winners include Julia Boyd, Erik Krebs-Schade, Jacqueline Bradley, Mandy Martin, Marina Neilsen, Dianne Libke and Byrd frequently receives the outrageously expensive champagne and chocolates. There’s surprise prizes galore and  in 2013 Louis Watts won the much sought after Teenage Ninja Turtles 55 Piece Art Set.

Selfie was announced by Oxford dictionary as word of the year 2013. So in the spirit of vanity Canberra Contemporary Art Space has preened itself up for another Member’s show.
