Award winning artist Marco Luccio will present an artist talk at the Geelong book launch of NEW YORK POSTCARDS, 11am Tuesday 9 April.

NEW YORK POSTCARDS is a 64 page hardcover book ($35) and the launch will be accompanied by an exhibition of Luccio’s original postcards and cityscapes from Manhattan.

NEW YORK POSTCARDS began ten years ago when Marco began collecting used postcards and envelopes from New York’s flea markets and second hand shops, drawn by their fragile beauty and the ephemeral quality of the stories they contained. Now the previously disposable histories are layered with sketches, paintings and prints inspired by the artist’s drawing excursions to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This rich and fascinating collection of mixed media works overflows with Luccio’s irrepressible energy and delightful references to the figures of Picasso, Modigliani and classical Greek and Roman sculpture, often leaving tantalising glimpses of the hand-written messages, stamps and postmarks underneath.

Marco Luccio has exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally and his work is represented in over 40 public and corporate collections including the New York Public Library, the Museum of the City of New York and National Gallery of Australia.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

JANE FLOWERS:
Sea Breeze

Until 14 April


Jane Flowers' recent paintings capture the sea breeze and express a love of that magical place where the sand meets the sea and the light is somehow different: dissolving shapes and enhancing colours. Whether a warm breeze over golden sands or a salty gust carrying yachts to safe harbours, the pleasures of our coastal environment are many.

Geelong Picture Framers at Metropolis

Geelong Picture Framers is a busy custom-framing workshop located upstairs at Metropolis Gallery. We specialise in the conservation framing of paintings and works on paper, sentimental family treasures and memorabilia. We stretch canvases and also frame everything from posters and paintings to football jumpers and other 3D objects.

We’ll help select a frame that not only enhances the work: it’s important that the frame, matt, backing board and glass help to preserve it for many years to come.

Geelong Picture Framers turn your pictures into art!
