Vale Alan Hopgood AM and Kevin Walsh.

Golvan Arts is sad to acknowledge the death of two clients in the past six months: Alan Hopgood and Kevin Walsh.

Alan Hopgood (1934 - 2022) who died in March, was a legend of Ausralian film, TV and theatre who worked as an actor, script writer and theatre producer. See our featured web page about him here. Also see this wonderful Australian Writers Guild (AWG) tribute to him and his work by Judith Colquhoun. Golvan Arts was honoured to be involved in licencing rights to perform some of Alan's plays in Hong Kong and Canada. 

Kevin Walsh (1957- 2022) who died in June worked as a garden designer and consultant, planning and advising on gardens throughout Victoria. He also wrote in periodicals and newpapers, lectured and presented on radio on sustainable gardening. Kevin was described by some as 'Australia's leading waterwise gardening expert'. Golvan Arts was honoured ot be involved in the publication of his books on water-wise plants and gardening. See our featured web page about him here. Also see a tribute to Kevin from the Horticultural Media Association

It was an absolute pleasure and honour to work with these two wonderful men.
