Visited the inspiring exhibition 'Schoolgirls' by Charles Blackman at Heide on the weekend. Such a treat to see that incredible series all together for the first time in many years. Such a creatively fecund period for Blackman (1951-1953). Go and see the show today! #heide #charlesblackmanschoolgirls #charlesblackman @heidemoma

Today was the first of our Heide Art Bubs working with the exhibition, Charles Blackman: Schoolgirls. These two creatives thoroughly enjoyed replicating Blackman's 1952 painting, 'The Exchange'. A glorious morning working with some glorious artistic talent! #heidemoma #kidsandfamilies #heideartbubs #CharlesBlackman

Facebook was criticised this week for banning a painting by legendary artist #CharlesBlackman OBE. The image – painted in the 1950s – depicts two lesbian lovers, and shows a shadowy boob, a bottom, and an ever-so-slight hint of vagina.
.
The painting resurfaced after Mossgreen, a combined auction house and art gallery, shared the image on the social media site. It ended up being swiftly removed after #Facebook censors claimed that it was “advertising adult products or services”. Since then, Mossgreen has continued to post numerous images of the painting on their Facebook page as an act of protest.
.
“This is a very beautiful image that is not overtly sexual in any shape or form,” said Mossgreen’s chief executive, Paul Summer. “It’s like going back to the 1950s”.
.
Facebook went on to blame the decision on its extra strict advertising policy. “Such ads lead to negative user sentiment,” a rep told the BBC. “We have zero tolerance towards such advertisements.” When Dazed reached out to follow up on these comments, however, the site backtracked. “We have reviewed the ad again and have approved it,” a spokesperson clarified.

We're picking everything up and heading Westside to Perth for our next exciting @blackmanstudio exhibition at the end of this month. More details to come this week. If you're over in Perth, or know of anyone who would be interested in coming, let us know and we'll get you an invite! #blackmanstudio #charlesblackman #perth #wa #australianart
