Sessional Printmaking lecturer Claude Jones has a show opening December 7th at Artereal Gallery – Art Gallery Sydney Australia

Opening night is Wednesday, December 7th,  6 – 8pm 

7 December – 22 December 2016

“Claude Jones latest body of work entitled Bully, is a direct reference to our treatment of animals in laboratories, entertainment, and intensive farming. It is also an appropriate exhibition title given that the bulldog features heavily in Claude’s more recent work and artworks such as Bully, Bull terror and Bulldog grip.”
