The opening was well-attended all afternoon, with people also travelling from Melbourne to see both shows. Larry sold three prints on the spot, while a Castlemaine art collector came in to Stockroom for a sneak preview of Roman's show, after catching an "enthusiastic and charming" radio interview that morning, which the artist gave to ABC Central Victoria breakfast presenter Simon Rogers. Roman has included 4 new works in the show, made from wood, metal and granite.
This show is filled with highly collectible work by two established Victorian artists. Larry Parkinson is a visual arts lecturer at Swinburne University, this year retruning to exhibiting after a break (he began with 'Mantle' at Wolf At The Door in March.) Originally from Poland - and a former scientist - Roman Liebach is an award-winning sculptor with several pieces included in the McClelland Sculpture Gallery + Park Collection, twice-finalist in the prestigious Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award.
