mushroom identification, fungal ecology, and the natural and
cultural history of fungi. Various fungi will examined and discussed
during the workshop. Participants are welcome to bring along
specimens for identification.
Following the indoor session we will partake in an exciting foray
through local habitats to search for species of interest.

THE Prom Coast Arts Council will present
the fourth in its ongoing occasional series of
artist talks on Friday, May 12, this time featur-
ing Tom Murray-White.
‘Love is the Goal, Art is the Gift Wrapping’ is
the title of Tom’s presentation set to go ahead
from 7.30pm in the supper room of the Fish
Creek Memorial Hall, 13 Falls Road, Fish Creek.
Tom Murray-White is a resident of Wonthaggi
but is quite well known to many locally through
his work appearing in the Great Southern Por-
trait Prize, appearing on the panel in the PCA
forum focused on portraiture back in 2012 as
well as his work with youth and the Wonthaggi
Tom is very much a free spirit especially when
it comes to his art. He has some very interest-
ing views on art and life and is driven to share
these views because he feels there is not enough
love in art and life generally.
“Naïve artists are pure artists - they produce
art with integrity, without needing external vali-
dation,” he said.
“Children aged between three and seven are
the best artists.”
He views the work of others without any pre-
“There are no bad (or good) artworks. I don’t
read artwork titles, artists statements and of-
ten don’t find out who the artist is.
“Art is pointless if it is just about demonstrat-
ing human skill, talent or cleverness.
“These aren’t gifts honouring the miracle of life.
Come along to hear Tom speak, to ask ques-
tions and to open yourself to new experiences.
Entry is by donation, no bookings required.
Bring your own drinks and nibbles.

WITH the expectation of sell-out shows, Ne-
whaven College students and staff involved in
Guys and Dolls have only a few more sleeps un-
til opening night.
They are planning to knock your socks off with
an energetic, funny, warm, sparkling performance.
Originating from a series of short stories by Da-
mon Runyon, the script’s unique and quirky dia-
logue is based on the sharp-tongued street-wise
one liners of the New York West Side that set the
pattern for the great American ‘wise crack’ come-
dians of the 1940s through to the present.
The cartoon-like dimensions of the charac-
ters and settings create an irresistible medium
on all levels of stage interpretation.
This production is about showcasing the tre-
mendous depth of talent at Newhaven College.
To find out more about the cast, follow Ne-
whaven College’s Facebook page.
The students have been rehearsing in an
extremely limited time frame – up to opening
night they have had only 63 hours to learn
music, choreography, blocking, character, to
fit costumes, rehearse and refine; a seemingly
infinite number of tasks in a finite timeframe!
Guys and Dolls is a classic piece of musical
theatre that’s all about fun. Please come along,
ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy Newhaven
College’s major production for 2017.
Final tickets are on sale now for Guys and Dolls.
