On Friday at Spiral…

Joy Georgeson, Lake Life

The Gang and Helen tootled over Myrtle Mountain and into Bega on Friday evening for the Joy Georgeson and Bill Insch double header, Oscillations, at Spiral Gallery. And what a lovely reunion of sorts it was – all the old mob from Rocky Hall, regathered for the fray. Just like old times…except that we’ve all gone grey.

Anyhoo the show was fabulous; Joy’s Wallaga Lake – Montague Island series and Bill’s A call from the wild  went down a treat with the punters, judging from the red dot count. The usual Bega arts crowd seemed to be missing-in-action, but of course there is always the tyranny of country distance to consider. (Extra gold stars, then, for that car load of keen arty-farties from Canberra who drove down especially for the occasion.)

Afterwards we all headed off to the Commercial Hotel for dinner, and weren’t we in for a surprise – not bad tucker, real art on the walls and Grey Goose in the bar!! Golly. Bega’s coming up in the world. Things are looking good.

For a squizz at the evening’s delights go here.

Oscillations at Spiral…


Our old pal Joy Georgeson has just sent through the invitation to the sequal of Southern Oscillations, the Sydney show she shared with fellow Far-South-Coaster Bill Insch earlier in the year. She’s been working like a navvy on a new body of work apparently, which intriguingly includes a 2 metre Montegue Lighthouse. We’re rather looking forward to that!  Opens Friday week at Spiral Gallery – see you all there.
