Remember when you were a kid the kitchen fridge was the ultimate gallery space for your artworks? Look Mum is an exhibition made up of the works of eight of Melbourne’s super star illustrators. They have raided their mums collections for their childhood doodles and sketches and used them as the inspiration behind a series of works specifically for Look Mum.
When: Until Sunday 15 June
Where: No Vacancy Gallery QV, 34-40 Jane Bell Lane MELBOURNE
Cost: FREE, artworks range from $35-450
Childhood themes are strong in this collection of works – the family pet, favourite TV show, treasured books and awkward family photos. While the memorabilia is a trip down memory lane for adults the subject matter is still relevant to the kids – it seems toys and TV shows haven’t really changed that much. I could instantly pick out many pieces I would happily hang in my kids rooms… what a great way to add some real artwork to a child’s bedroom – something you can both love. This sweet little exhibition is only open for 11 days so don’t miss it.
There is also a wall where you can add your own artworks – or if you can’t part with them, you’re also welcome to take them home and stick them on your own fridge 🙂
