WARWICK Art Gallery has a fascinating series of paintings on display to inspire young artists.
iNASA is a series of 30 paintings, all parts of a single larger story as told by Sunshine Coast artist David Howard.
Each painting shows a pair of helmeted astronauts and a mysterious third figure. Other motifs regularly appear throughout the series, and a storyline runs throughout.
Mr Howard visited NASA, the US space agency, and he said the image of a human head in a space helmet has always fascinated him.
“The works contain diverse references to events in history and aspects of my life as lived in western culture,” he said.
Full of colour and whimsy, iNASA would make a great first visit to an art gallery for the young.
Mr Howard was in Warwick on Saturday to guide children through a painting workshop for Buds, the gallery’s creative kids’ club.
iNASA is at the gallery until 2 February.

COMING EVENT:
FROM 6 February the Warwick Art Gallery will hold an exhibition of lithographs by famed colonial artist Charles Conder.
Conder immigrated to Australia in 1884 at the age of 17 and from April to October 1887 his signed drawings appeared weekly in the Illustrated Sydney News.
The lithographs are some of Conder’s finest work.
Included in the exhibition are a range of works from the Balzac set, invitation cards, and allegorical bohemian scenes as well as a collection of books, catalogues, exhibition invitations and research material.
