Bryan Dawe

Back by popular command may be a cliche, but in  Bryan Dawe’s case there really are plenty of people clamouring for his return.

As a result he’ll be returning to the Arnold Street Gallery this weekend to meet the many fans of his art work.

Dawe made his first foray to the Bendigo Writers Festival in 2017 and after a popular reception, returned in 2018.

Gallery director Susan McMinn said over 90 people attended Bryan’s exhibition at this year’s BWF.

“It was like a great party really,” she said.

“While the gallery is professionally run, it has a rustic feel to it, which Bryan loves.

“We had such terrific feedback, and so many pieces were sold, we thought we would do it again this weekend.”

Bryan’s current show was conceived and inspired by his travels to Tangier and Southern Spain.

“Again the works explore his love of theatre, circus and dance, and his fascination with the architecture of Tangier and Fez,” Ms McMinn said.

“I think the unique aspect of the current exhibition is that Bryan has added humour to the exhibition and there are more people as
subjects.”

As a writer for stage, screen, radio and print, Dawe has won multiple awards for his work in the fields of comedy, acting and music.

He is also known of course as part of the admired political satire duo Clarke and Dawe, which screened on Australian TV for close to 30 years.
