Takin art to the street

This painting by the multi-talented artist-of-our-time, Jimmy Willing, is called Laughing Jackass, and is part of his new exhibition opening next Thursday in Lismore with a street party. The good looking folk of The Fuelers (left) will celebrate the opening with a good ol hoe-down.

Next Thursday, June 5, country rockers The Fuelers will bring their special brand of theatrical spaghetti-western and high-energy rockabilly to Carrington Street in Lismore to celebrate the opening of Jimmy Willings exhibition Cooee at Caddies Coffee Shop.

My storytelling has never been confined to the page it spills forth from the stage and the canvas, Jimmy said. My mythical, magical realism is driven by narrative. I was born to communicate and my language is art.

Long time compadres of Jimmy Willing, The Fuelers have an old-world musical and visual aesthetic that melds perfectly with the surreal, mythic feel of Jimmys paintings.

Jimmys band the Real Gone Hick-Ups will, of course, also mount the street stage.

This is a treat for all the family; an opportunity to reclaim the street for partying. The arty fun starts at 5pm.

(The Fuelers will also play The Rails in Byron on Friday, June 6, at 6pm.)
