Exhibition recreates art masterpieces
‘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.
