Renowned Australian realist painter, Robert Clinch, has collaborated with classic car collector, Jeff Brown, and is speaking at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery on Saturday 28 April at 2pm about the Goggomobil Objet D’Art project which is currently on display at the Gallery.

Robert has transformed an iconic 1960’s Australian sports car the Goggomobil Dart, into an Objet D’art by painstakingly hand painting onto the Goggomobil a delightful cascade of 62 paper-darts; finished to show-car perfection. The dart motif has persisted in Clinch’s paintings since 1985 and signifies imagination, transience, purity and fragility.

Accompanying the car, this exhibition also includes detailed  sketches, a test panel and a documentary video about the project.

Admission is free and includes afternoon tea.
