20 Apr Shack Life – A Group Exhibition
We were lucky to attend the ‘Shack Life’ exhibition opening at Hazelhurst Gallery on Saturday 22nd April 2017. The show was a great success, packed with people, great artworks and photos in and of the Shacks. This wonderful exhibition was curated by Lucy O’Doherty and included works from Reg Mombassa, Lucy O’Doherty, Max Dupain, Hal Missingham, Martin Watson and other artists. It was a real tribute to the shack communities of the Royal National Park. The exhibition continues until 2 May 2017 for anyone who’s in the neighbourhood, check it out.
