The Truth About Comets
This is the title of my upcoming exhibition of new work. I have taken the title from a painting by the artist Dorothea Tanning who is one of three women artists associated with the Surrealist Movement. The other two artists are Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington.
I recently learnt that Dorothea died early this year aged 101. This exhibition is a homage to the three of them.
I will be exhibiting alongside David Allan and his gorgeous 'Flights of Fantasy' exhibition
Time:6 pm Saturday 15th September
Place: The New England Art Society Gallery, upstairs near the nesagent in the Mall, Armidale
