Australian Simpsons Art Exhibition

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned in Reading Digest that there was a show of Simpsons related artwork in Newcastle, Australia running through October 22nd.  Reader Adam (many thanks!) was nice enough to send in not only a link to their page, but also to a gallery of photographs from the opening night.  The pictures aren’t all high resolution, but there is more than enough to give you a good sense of what’s there.  I was particularly taken by the Monty Burns Dress Up item:

Burns Outfit Art

See my vest! 

Unfortunately, I can’t make out the name in the lower right there, but it’s #25 is the gallery here.  (Facebook will pester you to log in, but you don’t need to.)  In some of the other photos you can see people putting the different outfits on him.  The best part is that everything is there: the grizzly bear underwear, the hat that twas his cat, and the red robin suits that come one breast or two.  It even has tiny genitalia! 

Other highlights include the Scarface poster with Fat Tony (#16), the highly stylized shooting of Mr. Burns (#35), and The Neon Claws of Gamblore (#46).  There’s a list of contributing artists here, but I didn’t see anything that put names to works.  If anyone has better attribution for any of these I’ll gladly put it up along with links.  Thanks to Adam for the tip, and a bravo to all you Australian artists out there.
