Keeping up appearances…

4 07 2014

Pssst! Here’s a headzup for the arty-farty brigade in Canberra. A baton change is about to be executed in the property stakes and it’d be only fitting that a perp of curatorial persuasion stepped up to the plate. At least the cognoscenti wouldn’t need directions for the housewarming!

Not so sneak peek here

[Where’s the troupie do we hear you ask? And will secondary market schematics apply? n(Ed)]

Tour de Force heads south…

15 09 2012

Yep, it’s the latest chapter of…

 

 

…this time at…

 

 

…the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, where they show…

 

 

Anyhoo, it was great to be amongst our old mates again (it’s almost like groundhog day.) And this time, as a serious surprise, dear madly indomitable Richie turned up – fresh from cocktail hour at the Alfred – with a clutch of his devoted coterie for Megsie’s floor talk…

 

 

(The Gang’s been following the progress of his soap operatic treatment regime avidly, so seeing him in the flesh was just wild.)

Rodney and the crew at MPRG have done a great job with the install, and yet again it was fabulous to see the work accorded plenty of respectful space. [Yeah, you know what we’re talkin’ about, mutter, mutter, hrumph. n(Ed)]

 

 

Granny came along for the ride and had a lovely time mixing a bit of kultcha with a tour of her old haunts.

 

 

…and on the way back we swung by the McClelland. All too, too good…

 

 

…bar the very typical Melbourne weather.

We had a lovely quiet weekend to round it off. Highlights here.





We’re ba-ack…

15 09 2012

…from the latest episode of Tour de Force (more of that in the next post.)

We arrived home to news/snaps from Nige; confab in the Princess Day Spa (courtesy of Miss Pammy Faye)…

 

 

[Uh oh, that chin profile’s getting way chunky, Megsie (the trip to Melbourne won’t have helped.)  We’re putting you on short rations, toot sweet. n(Ed)]

…and this little tid-bit from the NYTimes, on the subject of that well-known glassie, Picasso…

 

 

Who’d have thunk!! Check it out here

We predict a rash of copycatting.





This morning’s excitement…

30 08 2012

It’s tragic that Megsie gets so excited about such a tiny little jobbie, we know, but she’s been waiting a long time for this…

 

 

Again we went off to work and arrived back too late to see the finished article.

Fait accompli, slab wise. Can’t wait to get a gander in the morning.





Update on Megsie’s workshop…

29 08 2012

This morning, as Megsie left for work…

 

 

It was dark when we got home, so have to wait until tomorrow to check out the day’s progress…





Red letter day at the Hideout…

28 08 2012

Well, yesterday was a big day for the Gang.

Here’s a wee photojournal…

 

Phase One complete.





August catch-up…

12 08 2012

Goodness, we’re nearly at the half-way mark through August and we’ve not yet spread any of the love….better late than never, so here’s a bit of a job lot…

First up, Jas biz…

 

Mark Gerada

And then there was Nigel’s starring role at Heidi

 

[We love that work Nige – super, super cool. We can feel a re-emergence coming on.

n(Ed)]

And then there was the fabbo snap sent around work by one of the Rangers…

 

 

…which shot us straight down memory lane to Rose Montebello’s wonderful Knot…

 

 

And then there were last week’s highlights – like another circulated work pic of winter on the Brown…

 

 

And news of Alex’s upcoming show, opening this coming Thursday night (16th August) at Beaver…

 

Be still our beating heart  – we love Alex’s work. If Megsie manages to shrug off her current state (flu-blown) and make it across the Monaro for the Ranamok on Wednesday, the Gang may well manage to swing into the Beaver as well. Joy. (Just a reminder to our American friends that Beaver is the name of a gallery in Canberra…)
