Every town has at least one “pocket rocket” and in Canberra its Shellaine Godbold. Multi-talented Shellaine made her curatorial debut last night at the Leta Gallery + Project Space and thus she adds another triumph to her ever expanding repertoire. The Leta Gallery is a small (but functional) space in one of Canberra’s industrial estates, Mitchell. It might only be 10 minutes from the city but it appears to be on the edge of the earth and thus it is a great place to have a party. And what a party it was; balmy evening, friendly people, lots to drink and some scintillatingly saucy conversation. Perfect indeed. Past Perfect is show that focuses on the ways artists have attempted to capture the past, to stop time in those wonderful moments that we want to last for ever. Its a very up beat start to the year and you can see many great works in all media by some of Canberra’s hottest artists. Now if that doesn’t sell it …. !
