community art from mittagong, for the world!
Be surprised by a new street art project in Mittagong; Meander down Ward Lane and you’ll discover four largescale quotes on a lane wall. Ward Lane Art Precinct organisers have embarked on a new community-minded project: Four Words. In 2017. Writers and residents of the Southern Highlands share their favourite four lines: either from a poem, a song, a novel, a film, a great speech, or even by a loved one - any words which inspired them and in turn can inspire the community. The experience is a meeting of minds in a creative and non-commercial way, touching passersby with significant messages, because 'hope begets hope'!

Jeff Lang - Alone in Bad Company

Friday 26th of May
6.30pm
Bowral Bowling Club 40 Shepherd St Bowral
E. info@eclecticsounds.com.au

Jeff Lang releases his brand new CD ‘Alone In Bad Company’ February 24th, 2017 and announces national tour March – June.
In a career spanning twenty- five years and at least as many recordings, Alone In Bad Company is Jeff Lang’s momentous new album which presents the most organic union of Lang’s talents and influences yet. Released through ABC Music on February 24th this year Alone In Bad Company is filled with exquisitely sung stories and melodies demonstrating that, Lang is nothing if not a lover of song.
The first single from the album is ‘Burnside’ which immediately highlights Lang’s proficiency as one of Australia’s best guitarists with rapid fingerpicking and guitar work. Each song on the album is rendered such that an alternative approach is unimaginable and each time Lang steps up to solo, his hard-won style is unmistakable – fluid but with an edge-of-the-seat recklessness.

5:00PM
Mittagong Playhouse, 114/116 Main Street, Mittagong (nb change of venue from St. Jude's Bowral)
PH. 1300 511 099

In a time before radio, CDs and Youtube, the only way to enjoy an orchestral work over and over was to have access to an arrangement for a smaller chamber ensemble. Thus our program ‘By Arrangement’ – a truly extraordinary glance back to another era when composers and their colleagues arranged popular orchestral works for piano trio in order to allow music lovers to enjoy their favourite music in their own home! This program presents three works by the masters Haydn and Beethoven and a new arrangement of one of Ravel’s small masterpieces, all presented by three of Australia’s most outstanding artists – SSO Concertmaster Andrew Haveron, ACO Principal Cellist Timo-Veikko Valve and pianist Kathryn Selby. Rarely performed, this is a truly unique experience for the chamber music lover!

"My works are mostly 2D and are about place and space and our presence in them. They range from the abstract to the expressive and the impressionistic. I work on board, canvas and paper in oil, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal, graphite, pastel, mixed media and digital printmaking. Nature's patterns and textures are common themes in my work where I interpret rather than copy my subject. My interest in people and the human condition also lead me to participate in portrait painting, an early interest of mine which continues to this day.
I develop much of my work in the studio referencing my sketches, photos and written descriptions which were done on site.

A market not to be missed!
Little did the shackled convicts labouring on the Old Well at Berrima School realise the significance of such a worthy edifice. Today the Well is a conduit for big market ideas, intriguing stalls, old and new wares, fresh produce, live music, children’s entertainment and a vibrant buzz of people. Just like the Old Well that irrigated the township, so flows the energy from new management that will whet your appetite to come back for more!
Please note phone contact for day of market only, all general correspondence to be emailed.

Witness the essence of Babe-ville travelling on the Southern Highlands most scenic country back roads.
Visit a majestic vineyard nestled in it’s own microclimate within a natural amphitheatre of sandstone escarpments. Handpicked lavish produce and award winning wines are bountiful within this utopia. View a spectacular waterfall. Discover the most secluded and tranquil villages in the Highlands. Home to the best producer and butcher of grass fed beef and lamb, we think, in Australia and a famous general store built in 1867. Lovingly restored and a crackling fire makes the general store a perfect spot on a cold winters day. Lunch is available here (at guest’s expense). ‘Unearth’ our proud potato capital and purchase local and regional cheeses plus other specialties before discovering another secret village. One of our most scenic tours, we travel through lush rainforest, sparkling creeks, fertile farmlands and abundant native flora.

Art Exhibition - Kelvin Taylor

Saturday 1 - Friday 14 July
2pm
Shop 10, Springetts Arcade, 302 Bong Bong St, Bowral
E. hamish@tenthousandpaces.com

A solo exhibition of photopolymer printmaking on paper that brings together the notion of popularity and power viewed through the filter of the celebrity mug shot.
The style of the works generally reflect the communication and artistic philosophies of the pop art and punk eras of the 1960’s and 1970’s, married with snippets of contemporary street art. The predominant print medium is photopolymer plate intaglio printmaking.
The plates have been overworked with relief printing, colourful rollups, chine-colle and collage applications adopting the instant media of applied photocopies and spray stencils, hand drawing and assembly. (Even the old Dymo embossing labeller gets a run.)
The exhibition will feature over 20 framed and 20 unframed works as well as large-scale reproductions on aluminium, books, cards and clothing.
Exhibition opening & reception: 2-4 pm Saturday 1 st July, 2017
