In suburbia

A few new exhibitions to mention today.  'Recollections of a suburban boy' by newcomer Martin Gash opens at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham today and runs until 28 October.  This is his first ever exhibition and his sublimely beautiful work includes cityscapes and landscapes of both Melbourne (where he has lived for the past 10 years) and the NSW Riverina area where he spent some of his adult years.

Established local artist Marcello D'Amico will also exhibit his work at The Light Factory Gallery at the same time in 'Drawing life' - 19 drawings and 4 sculptures which all celebrate the female form - something which has inspired D'Amico since the late 1990s.  The official opening for both exhibitions is this Sunday at the gallery from 2 - 4 pm.

Meanwhile, Heidelberg artist Jacqueline Gwynne is curating a quirky animal-inspired exhibition titled 'The Origin of Fur & Whiskers' which opens this Friday night from 6 - 9 pm at Off the Kerb, 66B Johnston St in Collingwood.  It features both her work and 19 other very talented artists.
