Friday 21 July, 6pm –10pm opening night
Saturday 22 July, 10am – 4pm
Sunday 23 July, 10am – 4pm
St John’s Church Hall, Barclay St

Liam Murphy is a Port Fairy artist with a thing for colour, lines and layers of both. Strawberry Choc‑Top is his new collection of contemporary abstract paintings, full of dizzying (in a good way) movement and repeated patterns taken to the edge of the canvas. Drinks and snacks provided at the opening party, or pop in anytime over the weekend to meet the artist.
