Outre

There should be one of those accent thingies over the e in Outre. I believe Fire Fighting Nephew's partner received a substantial voucher for her birthday to spend at Outre Gallery in Elizabeth Street. The voucher was kind of crowd funded among her relatives and friends. R and I visited the gallery a few weeks ago to see what was so special about it. It did have some interesting prints. I took a few snaps.



No doubt this is Sydney, with the now removed monorail.


Cat decorating cat. Pity it is out of focus.

    1. EC, no. While they are always very nice when we meet up with them, we don't have a lot of contact.

  2. I don't see a single thing here that I would like to hang in my home. Perhaps I don't appreciate art. Or perhaps I'd like something you didn't photograph.

    1. Not even the cat one? I quite like the first and the fourth.

  3. I like all of them but as they are so different in style they would need to be separated into different rooms to glow, otherwise they would blur together into a mess.
    Then again, I could always have another beer!

    1. Jayne, I guess that is exactly what they did, blur together into a mess. Beer is good!

    3. Sounds terrible, Jayne. What is wrong with a good old Aussie beer like VB? Ah yes, where they have sacked their workers.

    4. Don't be knocking the apple cider Andrew. Tis yummy stuff. Although I drink the soft drink variety, not the alcoholic.

    1. Diane, I once thought as you did and then I heard of someone who took his son for a quick whip around an exhibition that I will mention in Sunday's post and they both enjoyed it. His son would not have had any tolerance for a long time stroll. Quick or slow, the important thing is to enjoy the art. We have found our tolerance for slow walking in a gallery is limited, but of course we don't do galleries in five minutes.

    1. Gattina, I quite like naive art. You could make your own picture of a cat painting a cat. That would be fun.

  8. My favourite is Make Art, Not War. Do we know the date of the original design?

    1. Hels, I am just guessing that it is a recent design made to look older.

  11. I can't believe they let you take photos.
    The Sydney one has a big sign no photos but with everyone having a mobile I don't know how they would stop you.

    1. Merle, it must be good for business to let people take photos. They show other people who may or may not like something. The person who took the snap has time to think about it. As you say, even public art galleries are weakening their stance against photography.

  12. Well how about that Andrew! I bought a quirky little print from Outre the last time we were in Sydney. We have one here in Perth too.
