After a smash premiere season at the Adelaide Fringe 2021, Adelaide comedy band George Glass are bringing their new concept show Art Attack to the Limestone Coast. George Glass keyboardist and singer Pud Hamilton, from Millicent, said during the show, audience members are invited to get up onto the stage to contribute their painting skills to a giant canvas (3×2 metres).
“Our aim is to provide people with pure enjoyment, there’s nothing complicated or political about it; it’s just fun, music and art,” he said. Set to the eclectic mix of funk-driven music of George Glass, audience-painters are provided protective, COVID-acceptable clothing, sanitiser and masks, and a variety of colours and brushes – and then encouraged to get lost in the music.
Over the course of the night, the canvas will be transformed into a vibrant and unique piece of art. Each piece of art is representative of the night and the community and is safely stored by George Glass. At the end of the tour, George Glass will return to Adelaide for the final exhibition and paint party where audiences can view each art-piece from every leg of the tour and help paint one final, giant room-sized painting.
George Glass singer and guitarist Nic Conway said the shows were “a painting extravaganza – fun, messy and unique”. The events will be held in Mount Gambier on July 23 and Millicent on July 24.
