WILD WEST by Rob Mancini

The Outside Gallery presents a new exhibition, WILD WEST, a large graphic series that celebrates survival and tenacity and also highlights the vulnerability of the local bird life in our unique industrial, urban and seaside landscape. These works by Rob Mancini have been set free from the gallery to fly for several months at The Outside Gallery where they can be viewed during the day and glowing at night. 

From 18 March to September 2022, the images will light up every night at The Outside Gallery, Paine Reserve, Newport (next to the Newport Bowls Club).

Launch event: Join us on the evening of Friday, 18 March 2022 from 6.30 - 7.30pm to celebrate these works and hear the artist, Rob Mancini, talk about the works. [.pdf of invitation(PDF, 448KB)]
