FAB Fakes 2017 - Art Exhibition
The highly popular FAB FAKES Art Exhibition returns to The Art House this November
‘Fab Fakes’ are recreated masterpieces of paintings by famous artists. The artist whose work is being copied must be deceased by 70 years.
“Emulating the masters has long been heralded across the globe as one of the best ways to learn art, which is how the exhibition originated,” said Gail Brigden-Vice, President of the Tuggerah Lakes Art Society. “It’s wonderful to see the interest and standard of entries continue to grow each year.”
Copied Old Masters Artworks have previously included work from Degas, Rubens, Turner, Constable, Matisse, Waterhouse, Manet, Monet, Pissarro, McCubbin, Streeton, Ashton, Gruner, Lautrec, Gaugin, Cezanne, Picasso and many others.
The exhibition is open to all artists in NSW and the ACT. Any medium can be used, but must be in the same colours as the original artists.
First prize – Best Copy of a Masterpiece - $3000.
Second Prize – runner up $1000.
The ‘FAB FAKES’ exhibition is an initiative of the Tuggerah Lakes Art Society Inc and proudly supported by the Central Coast Council.
The exhibition will be held in The Art House-- Wyong, from November 15-25, 2017 and will be open daily from 10am to 4pm, weekdays plus viewing in the evening during the day and weekends in conjunction with the Wyong Drama Group – Coast Theatre Company’s production of “Allo Allo”.
17 NOVEMBER – 25 NOVEMBER
In this little French café, resistance and much more is on the menu. Set in WW II, René is caught between helping British soldiers escape, the German occupiers, hiding his little affairs and everyone’s desire to get their hands on some very valuable artwork. Classic farce, ridiculous fake accents and much innuendo – if this tickles your fancy, don’t miss ‘Allo ‘Allo!
17 OCTOBER – 11 NOVEMBER
