Announcing the winning entry in the design competition for The Australian National Capital on 23 May 1912. The Minister for Home Affairs, Mr King O’Malley, is in the foreground. At left are the adjudicators who couldn’t agree on the winner:
JM Croane (chairman), J.A Smith and J Kirkpatrick. Among the journalists at the back is Keith Murdoch (in front of the door), the father of Rupert Murdoch, the international media mogul.
We love the history of this place.
The site 42 Mort Street has a powerful publishing history.
It is the birthplace of The Australian newspaper.
Our club is modern and will utilise new technology to bring members the easiest customer relationship with The Framing Store possible, just as The Australian did way back in 1964.
Meet our planners.
We are artists and photographers in our own right. We may have different backgrounds and a variety of styles, but just like you, we all share the same passion and that is for stylish, planned and artistic representation of images.
What we plan to offer you.
Our normal 2 week turnaround time – due to our busy schedule – will be cut in half if possible to members. In other words, we move you up the production queue! Unusual custom productions which require special manufacturing will take longer.
We are associated with many Canberra Art Galleries and our members will be invited to the opening nights. Galleries like Canberra Art Workshop, M16 Artspace, Canberra Potters Society and more.
Free designer services for frames and rooms. Send us a good photograph of your next custom framing project and we will provide you with access to a password protected page to see what your image will look like in a variety of our frame types.
We plan to create a Creative Network on our website. It will allow you to showcase your latest artwork or photograph to other members!
The Activities page will list.
