Argh! What a Mess! @ Collie Art Gallery

Prize-winning artist and Collie Art Prize 2020 finalist, Elisha McGukin, turns objects of everyday life into fine art.

She sees every household object as a potential subject and utilises her great skills and talent to create vibrant bodies of work that set her apart.

“Argh! What a Mess!” is her first solo exhibition and  demonstrates  simultaneously chaotic and disciplined modern still-life paintings that jump off their canvases depicting everyday domestic scenes which verges on Pop Art.

Located 200km south east of Perth, Collie Motorplex is a beloved track and a state racing circuit in WA. This 2.55km track is full of tight turns and a challenging layout that any motorbike rider will enjoy.

Get off the streets and take your bike to the track with Champion’s Ride Days.

Ride days are not race days and are not competitive; they are a place where you can test the limits of your bike away from speed camera’s, trucks, cars and pedestrians.  It is a great opportunity to challenge your riding skills in a supportive learning environment that’s also fun. All you need is a motorbike licence! You can use your own bike and leathers, or hire ours.

It’s that easy!

FREE Spectator Entry
