Wayne Brookes: A Survey (1980 – 2019)

Long Gallery - Salamanca Arts Centre

‘Forty Years of Good Colouring In’

1 – 11 August

Despard Gallery is pleased to announce Wayne’s upcoming survey exhibition at the Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre. This extensive exhibition presents over fifty paintings, covering  a forty year journey of arts practice.

From Monsters to Magnificence –  Four Decades of Obsessive Adventure:

‘What began with juvenile monsters, gets filtered through Art History and the Apocrypha, to finally be immersed in excessive Palaces, Cathedrals and objects of ostentation. Each decade represents massive shifts and manoeuvres in an obsessive quest for all things beautiful.’
Please join the artist to celebrate this significant exhibition.
THURSDAY 1 August 6 – 8 pm
