Lo­cal Bald Archy pieces sell in Corowa

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES -

When lo­cal artists, John and Jo Skilling­ton vis­ited the 2018 Bald Archy ex­hi­bi­tion at the Corowa Art Space it was a wel­comed sur­prise to see their works hung right next to each other - and to see that both have been sold.

John’s work ‘Humpty Dutty’ de­picts Peter Dut­ton as a car­i­ca­ture of Humpty Dumpty, while Jo’s ‘In a class of their own’ shows a group of school chil­dren in­clud­ing Bishop, Ab­bott, Dut­ton, Mor­ri­son, Turn­bull, and Pyne as the stu­dents with Howard as the head­mas­ter.

This year’s Bald Archy ex­hi­bi­tion does not dis­ap­point and presents our politi­cians and other fa­mous peo­ple in a very dif­fer­ent light. The paint­ings and their ac­com­pa­ny­ing sto­ries are some­times blunt, some­times can­did, but over­all they are en­ter­tain­ing and pro­vide lots of laughs. Vis­i­tors so far have voted the 2018 ex­hi­bi­tion as the best yet.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is at Corowa ArtSpace un­til Satur­day, Novem­ber 3 and open ev­ery day from 10am-4pm. En­try is $5 and chil­dren go free.

Pic­tured are lo­cal artists from Al­bury John and Jo Skilling­ton, in front of their works on show at ArtSpace Corowa.
