Ex­hi­bi­tion recre­ates art mas­ter­pieces

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - TAXATION & FINANCE 2018 -

‘Fake’ art has never looked so good as the ones that can be seen at the De­niliquin Pep­pin Her­itage Cen­tre un­til July 27.

As part of the ‘Fab Fakes’ art ex­hi­bi­tion, con­vinc­ing recre­ations of some of the world’s most fa­mous art­works have been painted by Echuca artists Maryann Jenk­ins and Joyce Dempsey.

Art­works fea­tur­ing in the ex­hi­bi­tion are re-cre­ations from Fred­er­ick McCub­bin, Arthur Stree­ton, Vin­cent van Gogh, and many other fa­mous Aus­tralian and European artists.

This ex­hi­bi­tion of­fers art lovers an op­por­tu­nity to see much ad­mired fa­mous paint­ings they might not oth­er­wise get to see in per­son. It’s also an op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase a re-cre­ation for your home.

Copy­right reg­u­la­tions stip­u­late that the orig­i­nal artist must have died prior to 1948 (70 years ago) be­fore a paint­ing can be copied and sold legally.

In ad­di­tion to the re-cre­ations, the artists have also pro­vided an ar­ray of their orig­i­nal art­works for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion opened on June 25 and will run through un­til July 27.

The ex­hi­bi­tion space is open be­tween 9am and 3pm daily, and ad­mis­sion to the gallery is $3.
