As rain is predicted and tracks are soggy a visit to the State Library is planned to see the 2024 World Press Journalism Photo Exhibition. This a free one. The State Library is at 1 Shakespeare Place Sydney, alight the train at Martin Place. The train from the Central Coast leaves Wyong 7.49am Tuggerah at 7.52, Gosford 8.07, Woy Woy at 8.15. Board at the second front carriage. This should get us to the venue about 10am.

Some of us afterwards intend to visit the Art Gallery nearby, at The Art Gallery Rd The Domain to see the Alphonse Mucha exhibition. Tickets at the door are $35. This artist was the spirit of Art Nouveau (as distinct from the later Art Deco -the difference being Mucha emphasised curves and flowing lines when Art Deco emphasised straight lines and angles). Meanwhile there are a number of free photo exhibitions at the Library to visit for those not interested in the Mucha exhibition.

After that we will rejoin the group at the Library Restaurant for lunch about 1pm.
