WHAT’S NEW...

Tyabb Airshow is ‘Go’ on 8 March 2020 DISCOUNTED Early Bird tickets for the much anticipated Tyabb Airshow have just gone on sale for a limited time. Every second year the Tyabb Airshow provides the community an opportunity to get up close to the action as Warbirds from WW1 to current day ADF aircraft as well as historic & rare civil planes thrill and remind us all of how flying was. Some of these planes are very rare, some are the only operating examples in the world. They

are not museum pieces, they fly. Come along and hear the sound of Rolls Royce Merlins, the roar of heavy radials, see the smoke, aerobatics and excitement as these planes perform for you on 8th March 2020. Remember, tickets for the airshow would make an ideal Christmas present for family members and friends, but the discounted prices finish 31st December. See tyabbairshow.com for details.

Flintoff-King maquette to be unveiled MANYUNG Gallery is excited to present a stunning new collection of works from sculptor Stephen Glassborow at their Flinders Sculpture Gallery, supported by paintings from Ron Neal. The event will open at 11am on Saturday 21 December with the unveiling by Debbie Flintoff-King of a bronze maquette of the runner by Stephen Glassborow. “This will be first time the statue miniature will be seen by the public and will stand alongside 16 other sculptures by Stephen at the exhibition”, said Manyung Gallery Director, David Wemyss-Smith. Stephen Glassborow has completed sculptures of a number of iconic Australian sportspeople including John Coleman (Hastings), Lionel Rose (Warragul) and John Famechon (Frankston). In August it was announced he intends to make a bronze statue of Flintoff-King to be displayed in Mornington. The manufacturing of the maquette is an important step towards the production of a fullsized sculpture. The maquette is used to promote the project and solicit community support for

the venture. “It will be an impressive work that will celebrate one of the Mornington Peninsula’s true sporting icons; a winner of Olympic and Commonwealth Games medals,” said WemyssSmith. “We are excited to be exhibiting Stephen’s wonderful works, that blend his classical and abstract bronze figurative sculpture.” Supporting Glassborow on the ‘vertical spaces’ will be renowned local artist Ron Neal. “Ron Neal’s oil paintings employ a classical technical style; his thoughtful compositions and exceptional painterly & drawing skills have seen him nominated for numerous awards,” said Wemyss-Smith. Manyung Gallery invite you to the opening of the exhibition, from 11am Saturday 21st December. The exhibition will continue until 12 January 2020. Manyung Gallery Sculpture is located at 37 Cook Street, Flinders www.manyunggallery.com.au

A maquette of Debbie will be on show, together with 16 other superb bronzes by this masterful artisan. With numerous prestigious awards behind him, Ronald Neal has created a striking new body of paintings for this joint exhibition. The Burning Shore series features extensive multi-layering & heralds Ronald’s return, after many years as an exhibitor on the Mornington Peninsula [where he commenced his art career some thirty years ago].
