We now have a small selection of works available from Newcastle painter Peter Lankas. Here is a link to our stockroom, where you can view the works and also watch a short video on the artist himself.
Sir Peter Blake who's best known work would have to be the iconic album cover for "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" has painted a Mersey ferry. Sydney Ferries came up with a boat called "Ferry McFerryface"? I can see works by Reko Rennie and others moving about on the Harbour when I watch this, wouldn't some colour and pattern on our ferry's look amazing!

Leading Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is now showing at qagoma.qld.gov.au/ Brisbane. I wouldn't miss this for quids, definitely worth the trip. Here is a nice 24 min short from Bloomberg TV on this prolific artist who has been making work since the 1960's, Enjoy!
I can clearly remember seeing some of these works at the centrepompidou in Paris as a teenager and being amazed by them. This exhibition of Matisse's late period abstract collages was at the Tate Modern, London, 2014. Sarah saw this show and loved the works as much as I. Youtube is such a great thing on rainy Sunday afternoons at the gallery. Here art historian Jacky Klien talks about Matisse's paper cut outs, enjoy!
