The Weather Ring is onto its second issue, and lots has happened in the city since the Perth architecture/design mag launched last February.
The Weather Ring is the brainchild of Perthites Andrew Murray & Clare Wohlnick and is an attempt to chronicle and display the many facets of design in the state, from architecture to graphic and packaging design, past, present and future.
This issue features Tom Freeman writing on materials, a CODA Studio redesign of a rehab farm, recollections of a Montessori childhood, and a fascinating interview with veteran graphic designer Rick Lambert.
Printed copies of The Weather Ring are now available at FORM on Murray, or online on their blog.
The fourth edition of Téte-á-Téte has been released. It features an interview with Perth artist Gian Manik on his new exhibition at the Black and Blue gallery in Redfern; a wrap-up of the Fremantle Print Award; a map of Perth's emerging art spaces and more. You can download the A3-printable pdf here.

Clare Peake is the editor of tête-à-tête - a new bi-monthly arts newspaper first released in May 2009.
tête-à-tête (or its more familiar name, TAT) was created to provide an opportunity for a greater diversity of critical dialogue to be established in Perth. This lo-fi production focuses on the content reflecting a diverse range of contemporary arts practices on a primarily local level.
TAT is currently a self-funded, free publication distributed mainly by post. Its contributors are both emerging and established artists and writers, who in some cases have not had the opportunity to be previously published. They provide new voices for reflecting on the Perth art scene, which at this current time is ripe for discussion.
The second issue can be downloaded here.
Ben Mitchell is the new artist-in-residence at Midland Atelier. He recently wrote an article for tête-à-tête - a new bimonthly arts newspaper. Its first issue was released in May 2009 and can be downloaded here, and we'll be speaking to Clare Peake, the editor of tête-à-tête in Interview #8.
What do you do?
I am a part time student working on a Dip.Ed at ECU and the rest of the time an artist making paintings, photos and drawings at home, on the streets of Perth and in my Midland Studio. I am working towards a show in February of next year at TAFE. Also looking for some work in the creative industries illustrating or painting.
