This month we’re shining a big spotlight on the wonderful world of art. From exhibitions and galleries to the local artists you need to know about, we’ve got you covered. And what better way to kick off than scouring the Gold Coast for the best exhibitions to catch in July?
Featuring just about every medium imaginable, this month is bringing a whole lot of incredible local and international art to Gold Coast galleries.
Here are five amazing exhibitions to scope out this July.
IROK’s Nothing Left. Never Right At Dust Temple
Brisbane street art legend, IROK is bringing his talent to the Dust Temple with his latest solo exhibit, Nothing Left. Never Right. Available for viewing until 1 August, IROK says each piece is like a therapy session for him, which is easy to see in his raw and honest portraits.
Silent Conversations At Anthea Polson Art
Inspired by everything from whimsical fables to strangers on public transport, Melbourne artist Jill Lewis explores imaginary scenarios in her latest exhibit, Silent Conversations. The results are colourful, tactile linear markings and symbolic creatures sure to make you think. Her works are available for you to ogle at until 6 July.
Level Up Residency Artists Exhibition At Level Up Studio
The works of four uber-talented and diverse young artists will be showcased at Level Up Studio following a three-month residency program. On now until 5 August, the Level Up Residency Artists Exhibition features the work of Gold Coast artists Tarni Eastwood, Kaitlin Johnson, Jacki Marie and Creation Saffigna. Now in its third intake, this special initiative is all about promoting the skills of talented young locals so get yourself down to Cooly and show them some love.
Foscari Chapter At Gallery One
Only well-established multi award-winning Australian artists are shown at Gallery One, as their philosophy is to showcase the best of Australian investment art and support artists through their world-class exhibitions. Kicking off 5 July and running until 3 August, stop by the Southport gallery to marvel at Diana Watson’s Foscari Chapter which features beautiful oil on linen floral works.
Johnny Romeo’s Retrospective At 19 Karen
Referred to as a bombastic, neo-expressionist pop painter with a lot to say about modern life, swing by the 19 Karen pop up at the Sofitel to check out Johnny Romeo’s Retrospective. On now until 13 August, Romeo’s work deals with the way we construct our identities from the vast array of images that pop culture immerses us in. Our fave is his Flow Rich oil on canvas depicting a pop art Tupac Shakur.
