I chatted to our next door neighbour in the art gallery the other day, nice chap called Ian. He basically has a different showing every month, so last month photography, this month contemporary art, and so on. Nice range this month, some struck me as very amateurish, others were very subtle and clever. My favourite was a wall-sized piece that looks rather complex and messy, until you really look at it and realise it's actually subtle and simple.
He's one of Cooma's three art galleries. The others are on the other side of town and are more traditional in nature, whereas Ian likes to have some variety. I like living next door to an art gallery again (used to live next door to one way back when I lived in Armadale).
I spent a chunk of my birthday at the house doing bits of work, and got a phone call from Nick, wishing me a happy "Genesis of the Dalekboy." Also chatted to my old mate Glen, and his awesome wife Carol, and got a call from Tiki as I drove back to Canberra - hooray for hands free! ( Further chat of a mostly domestic nature below the cut...Collapse )
