Big sky Riverina

These beautiful distances with  “Clouds like headlines on a new front-page sky” (Tom Waits)…”Music of “The Tallest Man on Earth” on the Ipod from Josh’s collection … Lunch at a billabong by a shady tree (sans Swaggy) and now we are in West Wyalong ! Late Sunday arvo and we luckily found Matthew Cumming fixing up a Cafe area in the new seven month old Splatter Gallery , run by artist Clairre Wishart …. A really good Exhibition space and teaching venue that must be a welcome addition to the town.  Stopped in at a Glass gallery run by and showing the work of glass artist Elaine Marshall. She produces very colourful and skilled slumped platters bowls and a range of diachrotic jewellery.(if i could spell that I would change my  profession and become a smart-i-pants) .. Just prior to finding her Gallery we saw this big tin shed “ART GALLERY” painted on the side and front, with a mangle of iron out front behind a chain-lock fence which upon closer inspection, proved to be something of a menagerie of sculptural constructs .. there is humour and imagination in skip-loads and despite the junk-yard look of the place I wanted to have a bit if a squizz around in that humungous shed ! .. Alas! and Alack!.. the gates were chained and locked and there may have been a dog !.. ?! “Baked bean Olive n’ cheese chuck-about” for dinner and on to Daylesford Victoria tomorrow.
