“Planet Springs” Exhibition

Planet Springs: A collaborative Art Show presented by Milly Cobb and Pops Bagnall.


‘Milly Cobb and Pops Bagnall have travelled through space and time to reach Planet Springs. In a Collaborative visual art show of painting, drawing and sculpture/installation they display their impressions of the desert, skies and creatures. Their works pulse, breathe, ooze and wriggle with an energy that has emerged from an intense relationship to the land and the space shared between each other during their three month residency at Watch This Space.’

The exhibition opens at 4PM this Saturday  31st. August.

See you at the Crispe St.

Advocate Art Award 2013: The Winners

Well friends, it’s all over for another year! We trust that you were as excited about this year’s exhibition as were we.

But its success was a true partnership between you the artists who entered such a varied mix of styles and media; our committee who worked hard behind the scenes, but especially to  “Mr. Art” Steve Anderson for his vital role as co-ordinator. The exhibition relied heavily on our support from Araluen and in particular from Nathan King. Many thanks to you all.

The major “Excellence Award” to the value of $2500 was taken out by Rod Moss with his ‘Centralian Table’ made of wood, glass & paint.

Prize by the Centralian Advocate & CAAS.
