Futuristic cars and stunning images to feature
3 February 2012
Futuristic cars and stunning photographic images will feature in two very different but exciting exhibitions to open at Hervey Bay Regional Gallery on Friday, 17 February.
STUDIO: Australian Painters Photographed by R. Ian Lloyd takes us on an exclusive behind-the-scenes photographic tour of some of the nation’s most acclaimed painters working in their studio environments.
R. Ian Lloyd, renowned for his National Geographic work, examines through large photographic portraits the fascinating detail of the individual artist’s space; whether it be an inner city loft, a kitchen table or the sandy earth of the outback.
The exhibition features 61 Australian artists, including Marion Borgelt, Lucy Culliton, James Gleeson, Margaret Olley, John Olsen, Gloria Petyarre, Luke Sciberras, Tim Storrier, Imants Tillers and Judy Napangardi Watson.
Also on view will be one for the blokes, Industrial Desire: Detroit Concept Cars, exploring the secret world of cutting-edge car design. In a groundbreaking exhibition of models, drawings and film footage, Detroit’s gothic beauty and iconic futuristic cars are brought to life for the first time in Australia.
The show will set aflutter the hearts of dedicated car-o-philes and passionate designers alike. Featuring nine quarter-scale models of fantastic concept vehicles including futuristic SUVs, muscle cars and cutting edge eco-friendly city cars, Industrial Desire will take you deep into the exciting and hidden world of car design.
Join in the opening celebrations from 6pm on Friday, 17 February, with two fascinating exhibition floor talks by special guests, Studio photographer R. Ian Lloyd and Industrial Desire curator Leon Fitzpatrick.
The gallery is open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and entry is free. For enquiries, please telephone 4197 4210.
