November’s Unsuspected Artist
This months Virtual Gallery feature at the Kurilpa Poets end of year gig
is local landscape artist, Lloyd Rees.
Yeronga born Rees’s long life (1895 to 1988) was filled with his uniquely meticulous paintings and sketchings.
Receiving both acclaim and harsh criticism for his style, he was twice winner of the prestigious Wynne Prize.
Despite losing his sight in later years, Rees continued painting, claiming that one of the benefits of going blind was that he was now able to look directly into the sun.
Come along this Sunday November 27th, 2pm, to the Old Croquet Club
and check out this virtual exhibition as Visual Arts Director Shane K
tells us more about this influential Australian artist.
