Tom and Edward at Ivy Hill…

3 05 2015

We’re über selective about where and with whom we spend our time these days but something we wouldn’t miss for quids is a Tom Bosman exhibition. We love his work, big time – and last night he was opening at Ivy Hill, in tandem with Edward Willson (bonus!!)

We caught up with dear Tom and Wilma…


…and Karen and Suzie…


…and three of our favourite fellas; Andy, Edward and Harry…


…and lots more lovelies, besides.

And then there was the art…


Tom Bosman, Road to Berridale, acrylic on canvas


Tom Bosman, Road to Delegate, acrylic on canvas


(…mea culpa, honeys, didn’t get the title – but presumably somewhere in the Bega Valley…)


…and some of Edward’s work.

Fabbo! Check out the Ivy Hill website here.

The show is on until the 7th June. Treat yourselves.

Don’t spare the horses…

The Gang galloped up and over Dr George Mountain tonight for Ivy Hill’s latest expo  featuring Shunyam Smith, Tim Bass, Suzie Bleach and Andy Townsend. Great show.

But we have to confess that we’re total Suzie and Andy tragics and so they were, naturally, our particular focus (which is no reflection whatsoever on Shuny and Tim – plenty to like in their work, too.)

Anyways, just explaining why we opted for one snap only…  


Too, too good.

Get there if you can, worth the canter.

The Gang skipped across to Ivy Hill yesterday evening for the latest offering.

Lots of peeps – and so nice to see a broader crowd (a swag of Merimbula cognoscenti in the mix.)

Mark and Michelle

Karen, Megsie and Carolyn


All good. And we have to say that Carolyn does a seriously superior Sangria. Can’t remember when we last had such a good one – loved it, big time.

Drinkies on Saturday…

Kicking off the cultural rounds in 2012…

10 01 2012

It was that time of year again; the cultural launch of the year at Ivy Hill and Narek…and, of course, that great Wapengo summer delight, Artie’s b’day partay. We literally sprinted through the galleries, we must confess, and it was essentially a social evening (the tail-end of our silly season, actually.)



Shockingly lazy of us, we know. But we were, essentially, still on holz.

So apologies to the artists (whose work we do admire greatly, and it was particularly wonderful to catch up with Beth) but for further edification you’ll have to go here and here.

We did the rounds and then bolted straight back to Artie’s for a serious fall-about…and completely ran out of snapping verve at the party itself – simply not enough hands to cope with more than the wining and dining (it’s always such a grande bouffe, as you know) –  so no discriminating photos this year. Which no doubt will come as a great relief to the general throng. But we can reveal that it was, as ever, a most enjoyable night; we slept it off in the boat shed, broke the fast en plein air and wandered across to Paradise before rounding off the day with fush’n’chups at Bermi (no room, alas, for gelato.) Same old, same old.



Early snaps here.

Ivy Hill opening…

The Gang was at the Ivy Hill opening on Saturday evening, along with what seemed to be the entire population of Tanja/Wapengo…

Plenty of goodies on offer.

 [Luckily the Gang’s favourite work in the show was already sold, so we didn’t have to go through the excrutiating will we/won’t weez – especially as we now view everything in terms of the percentage of an airfare to Myanmar!!   n(Ed)]

For info regarding exhibition dates etc, go here.

Next weekend at Ivy Hill…
