CoCo Kelly…

From across the ditch: a treasure from Chick, who knows only too well what total Kellyphiles we are…

He and Cobi are having a fine time in NooZelland by all accounts, doing a 12 month residency (Tylee Cottage) at Sarjeant Gallery and putting together their first ever doubleheader.

They’re going mixed media; Cobi with big glass panels and carved sheets of lead while Chick’s painting and making wall works out of acrylic and steel. Sounds fab, can’t wait to scope it.

The exhibition will run for 3 months from the 11th Feb 2012 (for those in the vicinity.)


				




Grad biz at SCA…

Spike Deane’s sent through some great snaps from this year’s Grad crop (3rd year and Honours) at SCA…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This last (Spike’s own) is animated – go here.

Some way fine work, thanks for the eyeball Spike.

Megsie’s going up to the ‘Berra next week for the ANU EASS Patron’s Day, so it’ll be interesting to see whazzup at the old fank…





New Gang member…

Shwe joins the Gang…

The Gang’s installed a new alarm system at the Hideout – an Alexandrine (asiatic parrot) called Shwe Min Tha Mee (Golden Princess.) She’s still a bubba, but the voice grows in stridency daily…

We’re particularly chuffed to discover she’s native to Bagan.





Simply irresistible…

Acacia sent through this fabulous photo of young Toby checking out Grandma…





Here today, gone tomorrow…

It was hardly surprising that Acacia Peterson’s wonderful charcoal drawing should catch the eye of the ARTEXPRESS selection peeps. It’s been whisked off to Sydders this week leaving a bit of a hole in the Grad exhibition.

 

 

Never mind, we did have it in the flesh for a week, and there are pl-enty of other goodies left to enjoy…





The Grad Show…

19 11 2011

 

It’s that time of year – and right on the heels of school assessment comes The Grad Show, featuring selected work from HSC visual arts students across the Bega Valley Shire (Bega High, Eden Marine High, Lumen Christ, Sapphire Coast Anglican College) plus the graduating class from the Illawarra TAFE (Bega Campus.)

And what a glam opening it was – helped by the fact that it coincided with one of the school formals!

 

 

The selected exhibition is now a fixture on the BVRG’s annual program and represents a significant milestone in the artistic development of the oncoming generation of regional practitioners.

We can safely say that creativity is alive and well in the Bega Valley, and some of the work is nothing short of astonishing.

 

 

Get into the Gallery quick; it’s only a short season (closes on the 3rd December)

Highlights of the opening here.
