Max has been exhibiting his paintings at the gallery for many years.They have always been extremely popular with locals and overseas travellers wanting a classic reminder of true Australiana. Max is an Australian artist schooled out in the bush among the colourful character s he now paints. His vivid paintings are pos sible because he 'knows' every character he paints, he has worked, laughed, cried and sweated with them all.This knowledge and love of his subjects produces pieces that are so 'human' that each piece has its own personality. Every painting has a story, but Australian vernacular for a story with a moral and a laugh. The experiences of those years Max spent in the outback and the memories of growing up in a small country town have provided Max with an endless flow of inspiration for his paintings. His works depict life in the outback as it was then, in a light-hearted vein, keen insight and gentle humour that so keenly illustrate country Austr alians. Many notable people over the years have opened one-man exhibitions for Max. Celebrities such as Frank Hardy, Smokey Dawson, Steve Waugh, Bill Collins, Mike Whitney and David Boyd to name just a few. artfmax mannix Set off on the arts trail - first stop, Articles Fine Art Gallery.

The northern beach villages of Illawarra have always been an inspiration to artsis and writers. looks in depth at the best of Sydney Long's paintings, watercolours and prints and is the first major sur vey of his work for over 30 years -- and promises much to kindle the visual imagination. Sydney Long is Australia's foremost Art Nouveau painter, whose work is much loved. His art flourished in the imaginatively stimulating atmosphere in Sydney in the 1890s and 1900s, when he achieved early success. Long was born in Goulburn in 1871 and moved to Sydney when he was 16. Art training in Sydney with Julian Ashton was followed by 10 years working full time as an artist in Australia. From 1910 he was based in London for11years. Long's Art Nouveau paintings are like reveries, an escape from the everyday; they create a feeling of spiritual elevation, of another reality. In some of his most admired images,The Spirit of the plains 1897, Pan 1898 and his several versions of Flamingoes, Long created with decorative, musical qualities and gentle symbolism. Seeking imagery which conveyed the 'lonely and primitive feelings of this country', he captured something of the soul and tenor of the Australian bush.The poetic charm Long gave to the Australian landscape saw him emerge as one of Australia's most popular artists.The National Gallery of Australia is open 10am - 5pm daily.
