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.
