New exhibition to showcase collection of oil paintings

Posted 20 March 2014 by (Hurstville News)

Beautiful oil paintings by local artist Bruce Sharp are the basis of a new exhibition entitled ‘There’s Still Life’ at Hurstville City Museum & Gallery.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Jack Jacovou said the exhibition showcases an array of stunning works that elegantly capture Bruce’s passion for painting.

“The paintings capture a variety of interesting and challenging still life subjects including traditional themes of flowers, fruits, along with more unique life scenes such as a chess set, piggy bank and photographic equipment,” he said.

“Bruce has flair for the arts, and his professional career as a self employed commercial artist, sign writer and photographer has spanned more than 60 years.

“He also has a strong sporting background, representing Australia in the 1956 Melbourne Olympics as a gymnast.”

“I invite everyone in the community to come along and explore this special exhibition.”

The official opening of ‘There’s Still Life’ will be held at Hurstville City Museum & Gallery, MacMahon Street, Hurstville, on Saturday, 5 April 2014 at 2.00pm. All welcome. Artworks on show are for sale.

The exhibition will run until 27 April 2014.

Mayor Jacovou said Council is committed to promoting arts in the Hurstville community.

“The Hurstville City Museum and Gallery regularly presents art by individuals and groups from a diverse cross-section of the community,” he said.
