Distant Voices: Paintings by Karen Redlich

2 November @ 11:00 am - 30 November @ 4:00 pm

The Look – Geelong Gallery Exhibition

7 March 2020 - 3 May 2020

The Look – Geelong Gallery Exhibition You don’t have to be beautiful to have it, or young, or famous or notorious. You don’t have to dress on-trend, or even neatly. The Italians have an expression, bella figura, to describe a way of being that’s striking. The French might call it je ne sais quoi.
