A highlight of the Festival will be Manly Art Gallery & Museum’s exhibition Octennial: Reg Mombassa & Peter O’Doherty. The celebrated art of ‘Reg and Pete’ includes recent and early works featuring Reg Mombassa’s iconic allegorical landscapes and Peter O’Doherty’s studies of deceptively mundane domestic and suburban Australian scenes. The exhibition also includes recent graphic works and is accompanied by unique public programming, including a Music Lounge series of live music concerts.
