“Fab Fakes” Art Exhibition 2018


I always try to get along to this annual exhibition hosted by the Tuggerah Lakes Art Society. I very much enjoy seeing these legal imitations of great masters reproduced by exceptionally talented artists, both local and from farther afield. This year’s exhibition also featured special exhibits celebrating the 100thanniversary of the end of the First World War:

“The anniversary tribute, curated by  Gail Brigden  include(d) six Madaleine Cobb watercolour prints of Light Horsemen and, also, the ceremonial sword inscribed on the handle by King George, which her father-in-law, Light Horse Colonel Harry J Brigden carried in Egypt, plus a life-size horse statue made entirely of horse shoes, by Yarramalong’s Kenneth Smith. AIso featured, an original Dame Nellie Melba Gift Book of Australian Art and Literature dating from 1915, which she created to raise money for the war effort, among a number of century-old art books.”

The exhibition was displayed at The Art House, Wyong, throughout November. I was there with my camera last night, and Gail has kindly given me permission to share my photos of the artwork.
