Drinks with the Artist - Brett Piva

Wednesday 20 September 2023
5:00pm - 6:30pm
1hr 30mins

Join Newcastle-based painter, sculptor, installation artist and muralist Brett Piva for drinks as he shares about his exhibition at Straitjacket Art Gallery – EPITOMES SHARED FROM A V BOTTOM TINNIE

Brett Piva’s work intersects two worlds - the natural landscape of the Australian bush and the manufactured surfaces of urbanised space. Diverse organic markings sourced from sojourns in remote environments are replicated on manmade surfaces, gnarling curls of bark against the perfection of cut glass or the lines of leaves on brick and mortar. As the founder and director of both the MAKE IT - MADE IT Conference and Newcastle’s Onwards Gallery and Studios, Brett has championed knowledge-sharing and mentoring to established and emerging artists throughout the community.

Bookings and payment required prior to event.

An event coordinated and presented by the Newcastle Art Gallery Society.
