Op shop: official opening
August 17, 2013 | 12:00 am
The annual exhibition sponsored by
Farrow Wyatt Chartered Accountants
In celebration of op shop week:
25 August – 1 September 2013
Maitland is renowned for its opportunity shops, and Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG) is proud of its innovative exhibitions. To celebrate this duopoly MRAG presents Opportunity shop, an exhibition which provides a taste of the creativity, delight and commentary that can emerge from objects, items and all matter found, sold, available and enticing in op shops. The exhibition also offers another chapter in the art gallery’s Maitland Stories: projects that invite engagement with different aspects of life in Maitland, past and present. In the hands of Fiona Davies who has curated the exhibition, op shop becomes a subject and an exhibition that will enthral the viewer. There is much to see, observe and even listen to. Op shop welcomes and is a destination.
