BigBoysToys : Eamon O’Toole

Big Boys Toys : Eamon O’Toole
6 December to 27 January
Created by a petrol head of the first order,
artist Eamon O’Toole’s sculptures celebrate
a passion for motorsport, mini bikes, tools and more.

Officially opens at the Burnie Regional Art Gallery on Friday, 6 December at 6pm.
Special guest speaker will be Bruce Gowans, Tasmanian Motorsport Hall of Fame Inductee.

There will be a cash bar available to raise funds for the Friends of the Gallery projects.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, 4 December, 2019.

Created out of hand-moulded plastic, enamel, aluminium foil, texta and more,  O’Toole has turned his passion for cars, motorcycles and racing into an artform.

His Repco Brabham BT-19 “The Old Nail” was shown in 2016 at REVHEAD in Ipswich,  Queensland (and at the NGV Ian Potter Melbourne, in Cairns and other galleries around Australia but never before in Tasmania).

The Ute and Old Nail will both be included in the Burnie exhibition plus other sculptures including Blundstone Boots, Bessie Clamps, a stack of rims – basically enough to fill a shipping container.

The exhibition will also highlight a series of motorsport images by Bruce Smart.

Please note * January 26 is a Public Holiday. Gallery hours 1.30 to 4 pm on this day
