Groovescooter’s recurring exhibition of art works by musicians, producers and DJs returns November 2022 for its 4th instalment featuring an all-women line-up. Works include oil paintings, photography and other visual art by talented creatives whose far-reaching music output will be familiar to many and here make their artworks available to purchase in a group exhibition celebrating creativity. Amongst those taking part in this year’s exhibition are Lissa Barnum (The Vitabeats), Jodi Phillis (The Clouds), Claire Nakazawa (Haiku Hands), Alannah Russack (Hummingbirds/Aerial Maps), Linda Janssen (Wicked Beat Sound System/Bellydance), Chantel Bann (Shanghai), Zoe Carides, Christie Torrington (DJ Milky Tea), Wicked Bandit, Bea Pierce, Hiske Weijers, audio/visual composer and performer Mary Mainbridge, Georgie Groovescooter and guitarist/sound-technician-turned-oil-painter Bridie O’Brien whose music career includes being part of the 2019 all-female reincarnation of iconic Australian band Do-Ré-Mi.
Previous ArtGroupie exhibitions have taken place everywhere from Kings X and Darlinghurst nightclubs/galleries to a month-long Oxford Street warehouse takeover in 2012 which featured a searing live set by Andy Rantzen and Rachel Lafferty‘s Cherry2000 band at the opening and concluded with a memorable closing night block-party hosted by our good friends Soul Of Sydney. Previous exhibits have featured everyone from Regurgitator‘s Ben Ely and Steve Kilbey of The Church, to DJ Annabelle Gaspar and Paul Mac vocalist Peta Morris. All exhibitions are curated by Georgie Groovescooter.
