I’m starting to think those cats are onto something … that’s especially the case if the latest art show at the ‘Nine Lives Gallery‘ in Brisbane is anything to go by. Not only does the gallery name have a distinctly feline flavour, but the current group show ‘Paper Tales’ seems to play on that most famous of cat attributes … their gorgeous tail!
Wandering down a little laneway in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley at night is not something I’d ordinarily do, but I very easily made an exception for the delights of the ‘Paper Tales’ opening night. Accompanied by the lovely Jess, I saw many beautiful things to tempt the eye and the wallet … a mere sample of which I’ve shared with you below …
As soon as I saw some of my favourite artists listed on promotional flyers, I knew this was an art exhibition for me. The works of Courtney Brims and Bec Winnel (two of which are shown above) have long been pieces I’ve adored … in fact I have several prints from both of these talented artists already … they’re just patiently waiting to be hung on my walls.
Vibrant colour was added in delightful form, through the work of Beci Orpin. She has a uniquely bright style and her art is instantly recognisable.
Readers who have known me for some time, would know how hard it was for me to NOT walk away with this gorgeous piece by Lily Piri … though I think you’ll agree she is an absolute beauty! *sigh*
If you’re in Brisbane yourself and enjoy all things arty, be sure to head along to the Nine Lives Gallery before the ‘Paper Tales’ show closes … you won’t be disappointed!
