Arthouse Gallery, 66 McLachlan Avenue, Sydney. Tues-Fri, 9.30am-6pm; Sat, 10am-5pm. Inquiries: (02) 9332 1019 or online. Until August 12. Portraits Real and Imagined Jurgis Miksevicius was a Lithuanian-born artist who immigrated to Australia from Germany in 1948, his artistic roots firmly set in European art and bauhaus principles before he arrived. A collection of portraits Miksevicius painted throughout his life have been selected by curator Carolyn Leigh to celebrate an aspect of his legacy as well as his unique contribution to Australian cultural life. In Portraits Real and Imagined, the subjects of his portraits are transformed into expressive representations of personality and emotions. Dmitry Sinkovsky Russian musician Dmitry Sinkovsky is an extraordinary artist. He is equally proficient as a violinist and a countertenor. Imagine Fabio Biondi and Andreas Scholl embodied in the same performer, and you’ll have an inkling of what his concert with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra is like. As a countertenor, Sinkovsky’s approach is similar to his violinplaying incarnation. Creating a convincing interpretation is just as important as achieving a beautiful sound. Sinkovsky is back, this time performing Vivaldi and Locatelli with the Brandenburg.
