Time to climb Ivy Hill

Ivy Hill Gallery’s first exhibition of the season opens in time for the long weekend.

From Thursday, September 28, you can see the works of artists such as Lee Cruse and Cheryl Davison.

Carolyn Killen says you can enjoy drinks with the artists on Saturday, September 30 from 5pm. 

Aboriginal artists Cheryl Davison and Lee Cruse introduce this season’s program of monthly exhibitions at Ivy Hill Gallery.

Cheryl Davison’s fine brush work is executed with unwavering skill as she weaves the stories passed to her by her elders. This accomplished artist draws inspiration from living in the shadow of the sacred mountain, Gulaga.

Lee Cruse, has developed a meticulous style of painting based on the body painting of the dancers in the last corroboree to take place in Nowra. Lee’s grandfather, Pastor Ossie Cruse, attended the corroboree as a young man. Lee’s painting, Jungar Hunting, was chosen to adorn the Eden water tower.

Both artists are residents of the Far South Coast and have spent time developing a unique ‘coastal style’ of portraying their stories.

You will find Ivy Hill Gallery on the coast road at Wapengo between Bermagui and Tathra. The Gallery is open from 10 - 5, Thursday to Sunday. The exhibition runs to October 29.

Ivy Hill Gallery is at 1795 Bermagui Road, Wapengo.
