The 'Go figure' threads have been a lively part of the Figure Forum since 2008 and are a good way to keep in touch with whats going on, not necessarily just about the figure, but anything that is of interest or that is going on in the world, and/or our lives in particular (a kind of the 'facebook' of the Figure Forum)
Some of the old threads make good reading
The last thread from 2018 can be found here

Last weekend I went to the NGA (National Gallery of Australia) to see the Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces from the Tate, which they had called LOVE AND DESIRE. I went through the Tate when I was in the UK over 3 years ago, and only recall seeing a few of the works on display here.
As the NGA is in Canberra, it's not often I go there, but this was an organized bus trip which makes it much easier not having to drive for nearly eight hours, get lost, find parking, use over a tank of petrol etc.... and I get to see all of the Gallery plus the National Portrait Gallery ( I was pleased to see my friend Evert Pleog has 5 or 6 portraits on display at the moment in the NPG!
I will consider going to see the Monet exhibition coming there later in the year.
