Our Open Day on Wednesday September 11 is fast approaching and we are very pleased to announce that our guest for the day is Reg Mombassa. Reg is a nationally and internationally renowned artist, designer and musician.
Reg is known for his irreverent designs for Mambo Graphics as well as his paintings.
He has exhibited his paintings at Watters Gallery since 1975. In 2007 a retrospective exhibition
of his artwork was held at the SH Ervin Gallery in Sydney. His artwork is included in the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Powerhouse Museum Sydney, University of Sydney amongst others. Reg is the creative ambassador for the celebrations
for Sydney New Years Eve 2013.
Reg says he is inspired by the wind, semi-professional birthday clowns, heavy machinery and the behaviour of domestic animals.
Our open day celebrations kick off at 12pm with the opening of the Diploma Fine Art student’s exhibition ‘Journeys 2’ in the Trapezium Gallery. Reg will be the special guest at the opening.
Following this at 1pm in T Block Reg Mombassa will deliver a talk and audio visual presentation for NADC students, followed by a Q+A session. Visitors to the open day can see this talk streamed live.
At 2pm a BBQ and drawing session will be held in the P block forecourt. Easels will be set up and TAFE students will join in with Reg to draw en plein air .
Please join us for this for this exciting day of entertainment, and why not bring your own sketchbook and try your hand? NADC staff will be on hand to talk to you about study options and how to apply for our courses.
