AUSTRALIAN ART EXHIBIT AND CULTURAL EVENT
Bleicher/Golightly and Hamilton Galleries announce a high profile cultural art exhibit Australian Artists. The exhibit will be featured in January 2010 for G'day USA, a multi-organizational ambassadorial event involving Australian celebrities, industry and cultural leaders.
The Australian Artists exhibit is an exploration of Australian culture, environment and ethos through the eyes of Australian artists living abroad. The exhibit will feature new works by Christian Gibson, Airom Bleicher, Greg Cook, and Josh Rosenthal. Artworks feature innovations in photography, painting and sculpture and bring light on lesser known aspects of Australian culture and landscape of the island continent.
Christian Gibson presents aerial and exploratory photography of contrasting populated and untouched areas of the Australian landscape. Greg Cook subtly blends iconic Australian nature and folklore iconography with Los Angeles environments. Airom Bleicher uses lesser known Australian Animals and folk monsters as metaphors for social-cultural phenomena. Josh Rosenthal creates paintings based on interesting events in Australian history.
The exhibit aims to have both academic and public appeal with an accessible and approachable museum-style curatorial approach, talks and related cultural events.
G'day USA is one of the world’s largest ambassadorial events, involving high profile Australian celebrities, industry and cultural leaders. It takes place annually in the second week of January in Los Angeles New York and other major US cities.
