Artist Gavin Coote Exhibit
Parkes Library is hosting an exhibition from western NSW artist Gavin Coote next month.
Contemporary artist Gavin is a journalist in a country town, but that’s just half of what he gets up to. He has always integrated some form of creativity into his life, having spent his early years drawing tractors, har- vesters and windmills that dotted the land- scape of the farm where he spent the first half of his childhood.
His quirky and surreal paintings go on ex- hibition at Parkes Library on Monday, 27th February, with an official opening on Friday, 3rd March at 6pm. Please RSVP on 6861 2309 if you would like to attend and have a beer and talk art with Gavin.
The exhibition runs until Friday, 24th March 2017.
