One of the toughest parts on any artist’s life is getting your artwork seen by an audience, it’s even harder to do that without losing money. An exciting new program being held at the Newtown Beach Burrito Company store is slowly changing that.
Artist and former City Hub cartoonist Joel Tarling will be the next Sydney artist to showcase his works under this program.
“Glenn ‘Glenno’ Smith has curated over 60 exhibitions at this location,” explained Tarling, “The deal is that I simply have to email Glenn 16 artworks which he then prints as oversized A3 colour artworks to display and sell for $15 each. It’s a great project because I don’t have to install the artworks, rent the space or man the exhibition which is different to any other exhibition space where you would generally end up losing money because of the overhead costs.”
The upcoming exhibition will mark a return into the public eye for Tarling who took some time away to quietly hone his craft.
“I feel like I’ve been in the dark for about six years, the last thing people would remember me for is my four years at The City Hub. This is a body of work that I’ve been working on quietly in the background, so it will be fun to come out and show it off.”
