Location: Hammond & McCubbin Galleries
Opening Event, Sunday 4th December at 2pm
SMLXL Fine Art Print Studio is an artisan giclee printer crafting exhibition quality digital prints. They print on only the finest archival papers, using a twelve colour, managed production process with archival pigment inks.
The judge for this year's Maritime Exhibition will be Claude Ciccone. Claude has been practising his art for just on 40 years. He paints people, things and places he’s visited that inspire him, in the style of the old masters. In his studio his paintings jostle for space amongst the whimsical sculptures of seagoing vessels and marionettes that he creates using bits and pieces salvaged from the tip or found at second-hand shops. He researches the boat sculptures during his visits to wharves and fishing villages.
This exhibition coincides with an exhibition by the Australian Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) in the VAS Frater Gallery. See more details here.
