The Bunker Cartoon Gallery are pulling out all the stops when it comes to opening the Phantom Art Show in Coffs Harbour!
Spurning the traditional format of a typical Art show opening, The Bunker is instead presenting the opening as a major social event.
The opening, on Friday March 10th, will take the form of a welcome party with good food, an atmosphere Lee Falk would be proud of, and a chance for patrons to talk to the artists. They intend to make all phans feel very welcome.
Plans are afoot to transform the entry of the Gallery into the mouth of the Skull Cave. As people arrive they will be treated to a Deep Woods experience.
Drinks and fingerfood will be shared, and two of the exhibiting artists will briefly address the gathering: namely Dare Jennings (Australian artist, entrepreneur and long-time phan) and Dick Frizzle (New Zealand artist).
The winners of the saso.creative local art competition will also be announced and prizes handed out.
The rest of the evening is devoted to exploring the exhibition, mingling, and meeting fellow phans and artists; a DJ will supply the ambiance and all will be invited to eat, drink and be merry!
