Artist Mel Brigg, the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery and The Balvenie - lifting the spirits
Mel Brigg the acclaimed artist, the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery at Seaforth and The Balvenie Scotch Whisky combined to produce a vernissage of art and artistry to remember to the accompaniment of a beautiful balmy spring evening in Sydney.

Mel Brigg’s significant and sizable new collection features works with substantive flavours and bearing titles including ‘Moon Dance’, ‘Desert Crossing’ and ‘Journey Into the Unknown’.  Gallery Director Trevor Harvey, as is his usual inimitable style on his Gallery’s exhibition opening nights, gave an engaging talk about the featured artist and his works helping to demystify Mel Brigg for guests who were not already avid followers of this Queensland based artist.

Mel Brigg, a man who clearly does not chase the limelight, began painting in 1970 and has developed large scale works with his personal and intriguing narratives set against gargantuan, yet rich, land and seascapes. 

Mayor of Manly, Jean Hay, was amongst over 200 hundred guests who created an audible buzz while reviewing Mel Brigg’s work throughout the stunning gallery’s three levels. 

The Balvenie bar, this time set up within the Trevor Victory Harvey courtyard, again proved a magnet for both the Scotch Whisky cognoscenti as well as those sampling for the first time.   Guests not only had the chance to taste the 12YO, 15YO, and 21 year-old Scotch Whisky but were given the opportunity to learn a little about the history of the tipple that has been crafted in the same fashion for over a century.

This very social art event proved extremely popular with both locals and those from many other areas of Sydney alike.  MiSociety spotted one regular Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery visitor galloping in still clutching his suitcase – it transpired that his aircraft had been delayed and he was determined not to miss the occasion.

MiSociety along with The Balvenie is excited to have been a supporter of the Mel Brigg exhibition that  continues at the Trevor Victor Harvey Gallery until 6 November 2011.
