RAW: art in the garage…

We’re going to be away for a few days so thought we’d leave you with something fabbo to visit – The Bega Valley Regional Gallery’s latest show RAW: art in the garage – serious creative flair from the Tulgeen Group’s artists with disabilities in the Bega Valley Shire.

The exhibition opened last Friday and was launched by none other that Nigel [Lendon, Associate Head (Post Graduate) of the ANU School of Art.]

 

Nigel's speech

And what a pearler of a night it was – a huge crowd, a blizzard of red dots and a veritable scrum of happy artists.  Fair enough, too – the show is nothing short of wonderful.

There was so much joy in the room you could bottle it.
