Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery’s response exhibition : Out of the Allamanda
Affectionately known as the ‘Flying Artist’, Merv Moriarty has remained committed to teaching and creating art for more than five decades. In the early 1970’s, Bundaberg was one of the first venues for his fly in, fly out workshops, opening the way for other highly regarded tutors to visit. In turn this invigorated the practice and careers of local artists and saw the birth of the Allamanda Gallery, a cultural hub with a significant impact on local artists. Five of those artists Ann Grocott, Jennifer McDuff, Marvene Ash, John Honeywill, and the late Coralie Busby – artist and operator of the Allamanda Gallery exhibit alongside Merv in Out of the Allamanda.
