Big screen and tiny village feature in new exhibitions
TWO new exhibitions have opened at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Starstruck: Australian Movie Portraits and Peter Solness: Lamplight.
Starstruck features photographs of Australian cinema portraiture that create a bridge between the magic of a movie's fictional world and the realities of film-making.
Through photographic portraits, candid behind-the-scenes shots, rare film posters, casting books and original costumes, Starstruck celebrates 100 years of Australian cinema, including watershed moments.
Peter Solness participated in the well-known Hill End Artists in Residence Program in 2016.
Captivated by the history and inhabitants of the remote gold-mining town, he has continued to return to Hill End to produce a series of "light photographs" of the artists who live there, and the ghosts of its past.
