Milk Bar exhibition by Callum Preston

03 5760 2619

Until 8 Apr 2018

The Benalla Art Gallery will host the acclaimed exhibition ‘MILK BAR’ by artist Callum Preston to coincide with the 2018 Wall to Wall Festival.

The exhibition pays homage to the suburban milk bar, which was a symbol of freedom and trust for generations of children becoming teens who had been granted the freedom to ride, skate or walk alone to the local destination.

The exhibition is a life-sized, 360 degree experience, a lovingly hand-painted recreation of a suburban milk bar, featuring almost 500 individual pieces of stock, signage and replica shopfront all hand created by Preston.

Stepping into the show evokes the memories of that Australian childhood. Memories of buzzing neon, faded posters of Diet Coke-loving windsurfers and girls draped on motorcycles, musk sticks, jelly snakes, cigarette ads, the ubiquitous smell of pies and the enticing crack of opening soft drink cans.
