GALLERY owner Margarita Georgiadis at The Picture House Gallery & Bookshop in Gunning has told “CityNews” of what she calls “an exhibition cartographic proportions” opening tomorrow, October 19.The artist is one of Canberra’s favourite musicians, George Washingmachine. How many people knew that in recent years or so, he’s also been exhibiting regularly as an artist?
While he has experimented with portraits and several 20th century arts styles, in this show, “Figures in the Landscape,” he uses Australian vintage maps to conjure up the pin-up girls of the 1950s.
Cartoonist and artist Bill Leak has described these works as, “pure larrikin Aussie.”
Tomorrow in Gunning, Washingmachine will unveil his exhibition and later perform jazz.
“Figures in the Landscape,” at The Picture House Gallery & Bookshop, 82 Yass Street, Gunning, until November 8. Opening tomorrow, October 19, at 2pm, followed by a jazz performance from George Washingmachine, 4-5pm, all welcome.
