Fruit bats in the Art Gallery of NSW

This evening, we visited the Art Gallery of New South Wales, which is open “after hours” on Wednesday with free entry and live music. Free wifi too! It’s a great gallery with a mix of Australian and European art, contemporary and old, painted and sculpted, including my new favourite sculpture:

Fruit Bats, 1991

Lin Onus (1948-1996)
Yorta Yorta, South Riverine region,
Melbourne, South-east region

Worth a visit for that alone!

    1. The bats are polychromed* fibreglass and the clothesline is a clothesline. :-)

      *I think that just means painted in multiple colours.
