Don’t adjust your eye focus – the pdf doesn’t translate so well into the post. Never mind – save yourselves up for a serious serve of sparka-larka-larka-ling clarity on the night…

Looks like some quality xmas shoppery ahead.

If you’re headed for the coast for the long week-end, Narek and Ivy Hill are emerging from their winter hibernation…

The Gang’s leaving for Adelaide tomorrow on serious glass biz, so we’ll have to miss this unfortunately. Looks like a great show, though.  

If you’re loitering in the Far South Coast on Saturday, and cruisin’ for some cultural bruisin’, then get on down to Narek…

The Gang tootled across to Tanja/Wapengo for the kick-off of the coastal cultural rounds on Saturday. And there was a fine Canberran blush to the day; Sara Freeman being amongst the featured artists at Ivy Hill, while Janet DeBoos showed at Narek. Consequently there was no shortage of familiar faces in the crowd…(many of them sunburnt after a day at the beach!)

We’d not been to Ivy Hill before – strange but true – but, wow, what a wonderful aspect! Anyhoo, the latest show offers paintings by Duncan Stothart (an ex-pat who maintains a studio in Spain these days), the aforementioned Sara and sculptor Matthew Bashford. The exhibition is up until February 2nd…for more info, go here.

And then it was a mere hop-skip-and-jump across to Narek, for the ceramics show, Delicate Touch III; Janet DeBoos, Kirsten Coelho, Ivan Gulch and Bronwyn Kemp. We particularly liked Kirsten Coelho’s work, and obviously weren’t alone – she appeared to be selling like hotcakes. Which is good news for a sheila who’s travelled all the way across from Adelaide. Turns out she’s a good mate of Gabs, Debster, et al – so, naturally, we warmed to her immediately!!
