Melbourne artist Darren Henderson has a fascination with owls.... he's been painting them for years - lots and lots of colourful, expressive, kooky little owls. You can see 300 of them at his debut solo exhibition, 'Get Lost, Find Something' at Fitzroy's Gorker Gallery - opening tonight from 6.30pm - 8.30pm!
The installation at Gorker will see all 300 tiny owl paintings hung to form a large-scale world map, alongside other paintings and gocco prints by the artist. If you're interested to learn a little more about Darren and the show, there is a great recent little interview with him over here.
...and if Darren's feathery little friends look familiar, perhaps that's because you've seen their Grandaddy on the exterior wall of The Wall cafe in Balaclava! (pics below). I love that guy!
In you're on the Northside of Melbourne tonight pop in to the show and have a little look!
