Kerrie Lowe Gallery has PRIDE in presenting our 23rd Mardi Gras exhibition in 2018.
Members of the "Little Sisters of the Nimble Finger" artist collective work their magic in clay, wood, paint, feathers and glitter to celebrate that first march down Oxford Street in 1978!
We celebrate the amazing artistic contributions of past Parade organisers, MCs, marchers, dancers, costume and wig makers and Queer "floatilla" decorators! We delight in celebrating the past and present LGBQTI communities and the sense of pride and joy it brings when we gather together at the exhibition opening with our resident Mother Abyss to sing ‘Ave Mardi Gras’ to the accompaniment of the piano accordion. We're still reeling in our stilletoes from our 2017 exhibition where we celebrated Marriage Equality (pre-plebiscite) with Ceramic Same-Sex Wedding Cakes: one of which was presented to Peter and Bon, that amazing couple of 50 years, lifelong activists, awarded the Order of Australia and famous for that first boy on boy kiss on ABC TV.
Forty Years of Fabulous Frocks believes that Gay Rights are Human Rights and there can never be too many colours in a rainbow! Keep the Date and celebrate with us in King Street (that thinks it is Queen Street) in Newtown at the Kerrie Lowe Gallery
