Notes From the Library #17

"Hill End is a place to relax, garden, cook, to read a few books, think and create"  This is a quote from Peter Adams' new book  "ORE WHAT - The People of Hill End".  The quote resonates with life here at The Drip. 

Hill End has become virtually a "sacred site" of Australian art.  Russel Drysdale, Leonard French, John Olsen, Brett Whiteley, Margaret Olley; Jeffrey Smart; the roll call of artists who have been associated with the historic gold mining township is remarkable and is still growing. A new generation of artists including potter Lino Alvarez, whose work was mentioned in yesterday's blog, continue the tradition in the present day.

Adams' book, celebrating Hill End and its people is a wonderful addition to our library., where we also have the diaries of Leonard French and an increasingly comprehensive collection of publications relating to the artists of Hill End. The book can be ordered directly from Peter Adams  Order the Book
