Inspiration in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia
Wow – it’s been a long since I have been to the Blue Mountains, in NSW and I wasn’t disappointed with my weekend break in Katoomba.
It rained the first day and as I was only fitted out with summer clothes so I retreated to the lovely cafes along the main street and visited a variety of small art galleries. The Bear Gallery was my favourite – definitely worth a walk further down the road to the larger Gallery space, in a white washboard house. They consistently show the work of 40 artists from around and connected to the Blue Mountains who live there or have lived there.
My favourites were the work of David Millbank – large abstract landscapes, in particular this one which is a card. James Blackwell – intricately cut and repetitive patterns and an amazing Glass blower Kayo Yokohama .
Blue Mountains Cultural Centre I had the pleasure of seeing an exhibition of some early etchings but he British Artist David Hockney at the City Art Gallery. Alongside a permanent exhibition of the Blue Mountains range.
Some of the sights and experience of hanging out in the Blue Mountains for a weekend. I enjoyed the cafes, restaurants and art galleries in the area; not forgetting the amazing landscape of the unique Blue Mountains. The amazing cloud formations and amazing amount of trees and just being in nature. I enjoyed an afternoon at Blackheath pottering around the shops and taking photographs of the streets and nature.

There are lots of nice cafe’s to choose from on the main street. I really liked this little quiet Korean restaurant called Sanwiye
