Take one stag leaf’s head…

John Boucher, Leaf One 2008, digital print.

Johnny’s just sent through these fabulous images of his latest digi work, from the pigmentGALLERY’s Botanica exhibition (which opened in Melbourne last Friday.)  

Granny and the Gang dropped by on our way to Young & Jackson’s on Sunday but unfortunately the gallery was closed, so we missed seeing them in the flesh.

The good news is they were snapped up on the night, Pooh tells us. Oh how we love those little red dots, eh!! And Johnny’s (typically modest) aside – “I was just playing around with a stag leaf’s head…”

For anybody in the environs of the Nicholas Building (cnr Swanson St and Flinders Lane) the show’s on until the 20th December.

Johnny wins Art4Aid award

25 07 2007


The glass community is often perceived as being somewhat isolationist in its attitude to other art forms (see the Manifesto file) but of course the Kelly Gang doesn’t subscribe to that.  We were very excited to hear last week that our friend John Boucher picked up the Art4Aid prize at a ceremony held in Victoria last week.

The award was presented by the Governor of Victoria, Professor David de Krester, at the exhibition launch held at the Victorian Art Society in East Melbourne. Our old mate Pooh sent through the pics – I’m particularly enamoured of the image of the line of dignitaries perched below the painting of a reclining Tim Costello.
