Hooray! Shag is coming to town! Unfortunately not my town though. Sigh. Josh "Shag" Agle is very soon returning to Australia for his sixth visit & with his sixth collection of paintings & prints especially created for Outre Gallery & Australian fans. Shag's exhibition is called The Birds and the Beasts & will be touring Outre Galleries in both Melbourne & Sydney. Outre will also be presenting the exhibition in Perth at the Breadbox Gallery.
Above, Glorious Lifestyle, is just one of the many brand spankin' new prints for the upcoming Shag Aussie exhibition. For all the tour dates, launch/gala openings & book signings check out Outre for details & for the complete lowdown on all things lowbrow. Yay Outre! Another very fab artist from Outre is one of their very own staff members, curator Gemma Jones. Gemma is a well established Aussie artist having had many successful exhibitions with her sweet sixties inspired mod girl paintings. Have a look at Gemma's website for samples of her enchanting art. I particularly love the Girls Dresses & Dreams series. Oh-so-adorable.
The above image is titled Delia Daydreamer, a signed & numbered limited edition giclee print available in Gemma's Etsy store, Paintergirl. Besides curating amazing shows at Outre & creating her own wonderful art, Gemma also runs the Kaotic Kraft Kuties collective in Melbourne. If you'd like to know more about the crafty collective maybe shoot Gemma an email via her website for more info & details about upcoming events.
As much as I love Brisbane, it seems my ever expanding list of reasons why relocating to Melbourne would be more fun is growing at a phenomenal rate...
