This February, to celebrate the summer season, we are having “From the
Shed”- an exhibition of woodwork by Ivan Hollins in the Side Room. This show
will be very popular with both locals and visitors alike. Ivan’s fine woodwork is
already familiar to us, as he was part of a group exhibition at the gallery last
year, and his work was so well received, that he has been persuaded to go it
alone this time.
In his pieces, Ivan often manages to combine some fascinating old pieces of
ironwork with his beautiful timber creations. He says that he spent the first
forty years of his life in Mallee country, near Mildura, and that he has always
had an intense interest in old farm machinery and in all things natural. He is a
fine craftsman and enjoys creating useful items from our native timbers.
Working with wood and old machinery bits has been a long-time passion of his.
If you doubt this, go and check out his amazing front fence in Avernus street in
Cobargo….it’s a local landmark.
His show runs for all of February, with an opening morning tea and meet the
artist, on Saturday, 3 rd Feb. between 10am and 12 noon.
