RAW: art in the garage…

25 09 2009

We’re going to be away for a few days so thought we’d leave you with something fabbo to visit – The Bega Valley Regional Gallery’s latest show RAW: art in the garage – serious creative flair from the Tulgeen Group’s artists with disabilities in the Bega Valley Shire.

 

Mr Wise's Trottery

The exhibition opened last Friday and was launched by none other that Nigel [Lendon, Associate Head (Post Graduate) of the ANU School of Art.]

 

Nigel's speech

And what a pearler of a night it was – a huge crowd, a blizzard of red dots and a veritable scrum of happy artists.  Fair enough, too – the show is nothing short of wonderful.

There was so much joy in the room you could bottle it.

We love it, big time (except that Peter Fay swooped in and snaffled up our fave works!!)
