Finishing soon – After 50 years ‘Bush’ artist Mal Gilmour has achieved another sell-out with his current solo exhibition “Mainly Miniatures” at Gallery 127, Avoca.
Reporting in the ‘Melbourne Observer’ in 1969, Mal Gilmour, who had only been painting professionally for two years at that time, also sold-out his first exhibition in Halmaag Galleries, located in Exhibition St Melbourne.
While achieving high clearance levels at his previous two exhibitions at Gallery 127, Hugh Forster, President of the Arts & Gardens who run the gallery, commented that ‘Mal was exceedingly pleased in achieving another 100% sell-out despite the 50 year interlude.’
As previously observed, a realist landscape artist Gilmour paints the Australian bush with a meticulous and sentimental approach which he continues to present with his current works but with some new influences.
“An artist of this calibre and longevity has attracted a number of collectors of his works over the years,” says Mr Forster, “and our Gallery 127 acknowledges and congratulates Mal on his success with this exhibition which reflects a year’s effort of intensive work at the easel.
The exhibition still runs for another weekend and should not be missed.
