Chicken before the egg…

This post is for La Groppa.

Just as Easter advances, the Gang enjoyed the most glorious prelude – Big Sammy sent us up to Moruya last weekend to pick up Beatrice…

Ain’t she adorable!!

Pa and the Gang dutifully motored up to take possession, and then putt-putted back via Bermi for fush’n’chups…

…and stopped for a swim with Brigitta at Kianinny Bay (sorry, no snaps of girlies in speedos – we’ll leave all that to silly Tony-put-it-away-Abbott)…

…before the final dash to Wyndham…

We love her big time already. And, oh, how happy we are that she’s gunna end her days fanging around Flinders! Truly, there is a god.

Jas sent these through last week, but being otherwise occupied with a gallery change-over, we’ve simply not had time to post before now. It is, of course,  the good oil on the Weereewa Sculpture Prize 2010. Above is Jas’s own submission [very lovely and lyrical. n(Ed)]… and here’s the general wrap-up…

 

Megs,

 

Under the title Winds of Change, the Weereewa Sculpture Prize 2010 opened yesterday.

It was coordinated by Mike Macgregor, judged by Wendy Teakel, Head of Scupture ANU, and sponsored by Infigen.

 Cheers Jas

 

Thanks Jas, much appreciated.

 

We noticed with interest that a number of works had migrated inland from Sculpture On the Edge at Bermagui…(!)

 

More snaps here and here.

Apologies for lack of titles/artists info. We added those we recognised.





On the eve of the Archies – wot we fancy…

Darlings! Time again for The Arts equivalent of The Melbourne Cup.

It’s a fairly rum field, we reckon, but there are a couple of faves. The Gang fancies…

…(we love that bonus serve of Ex action)…and…

Quite compelling (not that we know aught about the Lord Mayor of Melbourne.)

Meanwhile, La Groppa’s laying her lobsters on Kev…

Bring it on.

Post script:…and the winner was…

 

 

…Sam Leach’s painting of comedian Tim Minchin. Now everybody’s carrying on about size!!
