    understand things.” This statement from Robert Hannaford concisely encapsulates his approach to art. Throughout his artwork, it is easy to see this approach through his quest to understand the people and environments around him. Robert Hannaford is one of Australia’s most renowned and influential portrait artists. The Art Gallery of South Australia has curated an exhibit of the artist’s portraiture and drawing works. Robert Hannaford’s impact upon Australian Art can hardly be overlooked. A regular Archibald Prize finalist since 1994, he has painted the likes of former Prime Minister Paul Keating, Chancellors and Ministers within Parliament, Australian of the Year nominees and everyday people. He has been commissioned twice to capture Sir Donald Bradman: once, in a portrait, and another, in sculpture form, which now sits at the entrance to Adelaide Oval. This celebration of the long career and skill of Hannaford displays why his portraits are held in high esteem. The exhibition displays many of Hannaford’s celebrated portraiture works, as well as a number of drawings and portraits from his private collection, which span his entire career.

Hannaford was born in 1944 in Riverton, South Australia. As a young boy, he was passionate about drawing and…

    frontrunner of the Republican Primary candidates. It’s just a fact that in most cases, Democrats do better during a campaign when the public’s main concerns are on social issues. Republicans fare much better when that concern shifts towards worry of war or terrorism. A major ISIS terrorist event occurred in Paris, France towards the beginning of the Republican Primary. Once again, Trump shocks the world by responding with a controversial plan of banning all Muslims from entering the United…

    ‘No.’”. This statement may be true for some liberals, but Schlichter speaks as though this is a fact that is true in all situations. Schlichter is using this statement as if it is logos when in reality it falls into being more pathos. David Kopel expresses in his article, “Trust The People: The Case Against Gun Control.” on the CATO Institute website, his view on gun control, “Gun control is based on the faulty notion that ordinary American citizens are too clumsy and ill-tempered to be trusted…

    myself. I think that what we can do to fix this problem, is to just inform others. If we allow others to form their own opinion, rather than to just agree or regurgitate what their parents or relatives say, than maybe we can make a difference. The idea that immigration is bad is an outdated and irrelevant opinion. By talking and raising awareness of the great things that immigration can bring, we can make a change in our lives and open our eyes to new culture and world views. Because I am not…
