Exhibition by Helly at Wills Domain

HellyArt News — Helly @ 3:13 pm

Hey there!  I am currently the “Artist of the Month” at my own workplace – The Gallery at Wills Domain.  It is such a magnificent way to spend the day.  The view is quite possibly the best view from a winery, in the entire Margaret River Region.  The food is bloody fantastic and my work colleagues are champions.  I have been standing at my easel – adding the finishing touches to another “masterpiece” – occasionally glancing out over the vineyard and down the spectacular valley to a glimpse of the ocean.  This must be the best job in the world!  I have sold 4 paintings recently – such a bonus for this struggling artist!

If you haven’t seen the newly-renovated Wills Domain Winery, you are missing a truly beautiful experience!  The Gallery at Wills Domain is now open and is exhibiting works from artists such as Ian de Souza, Carmen McFaull, Doug Chambers and Bill Yeates.  Selected pieces from the HellyArt portfolio are also on show.   The magnificent new building includes an Alpaca Living gift shop, with the latest alpaca knitwear, coats and homewares.   Jewellery available includes Gabbi Kelly, Sophie Kyron and Elk.

Around Dunsborough & Yallingup — Helly @ 6:39 pm

Today is a perfect example of the “perfect day”.  How good is it to see the sun?  When the weather is like it was today, the south-west is glorious!   The rolling green hills around the wineries and galleries are spectacular…

Bring On the Sun!!

Around Dunsborough & Yallingup — Helly @ 7:37 pm

I think we’re being teased!!  We are only getting little snippets of the sun here in Dunsborough, but it feels REALLY good!  The nights are chilly, but it’s great cuddling weather!  Good time of year to visit a winery or brewery or Gallery and appreciate the surroundings.  It is absolutely stunning in some of them there green hills!!!
