The FanBoy VS ArtBoy - The World of Jim Henson Art Exhibition is close enough to taste. Presented by ArtBoy Gallery it's all happening at 99 Greville street in Prahran from 21 November to 30 November 2014. The Opening Night is on Friday 21 Nov and goes from 6 to 8.30pm.
The FanBoy VS ArtBoy concept was born when ArtBoy decided they would dig, discover and showcase distinctive styles of art in a gallery that was receptive to amateur, professional or hobby artists, giving them recognition for their FanBoy Art. Searching the globe so to speak, they found that the fan artists were dedicated in capturing the essence of their subject. All this hidden art prompted ArtBoy to showcase these hidden gems, for to not do so would surely be a crime. Thus these specific exhibitions solely dedicated to FanArt came about and served to encourage everybody and anybody to enter into these genre specific exhibitions.
