Almanac Art: Bush Footy Scoreboard and Art Exhibition

Les Everett and Vin Maskell’s Scoreboard Pressure website is a grand treasure trove of one of the most integral pieces of furniture at any sporting ground.

Les has kindly shared this gem of a yarn with us at The Almanac and provides details on a great Art Exhibition currently underway in Western Australia

 

“The Dockers always beat the “Mapies” on the wall at my place. I bought this painting by Utopia artist Josie Kunoth Petyarre at her exhibition Bush Footy at the Mossenson Gallery in Collingwood in 2009. The gallery was on the aptly named Derby Street but has since closed”
