At COMODAA (Contemporary Modern Australian Art) this month is a show featuring, among others, the Australian painter Anthony White. 'Young Guns summer show', features seven amazingly talented young Australian artists:- Jane Fontane, Zoe MacDonnell, Juz Kitson, Vexta, Erin Smith and Linton Meagher. It's very exciting to see acknowledgement of the great talent we have here in Australia. The show runs from 20th - 26th June so if you're lucky enough to be in the vicinity drop in and have a look. Here is what Jonathon White, director of COMODAA has to say:

.... “We’ve had great success to date bringing established Australian artists to the UK and Europe,” says White, “but there’s a bunch of undiscovered talent on the other side of the world that I think will excite and intrigue a British audience”.

It was during a recent trip back to Sydney earlier this year to discuss plans with those artists he already represents that White came across this new crop of talent, “Every time I go back I see more opportunities, more potential, more creativity…and this show is all about that.

“Each one of these artists is unique and exciting and is pushing boundaries. Each one has a story to tell and each one is already on the cusp of great acclaim back home in Aus. Here is a chance for them to get ahead of the game in the UK, to get out there and, hopefully, get people talking.”
