Metal As Anything showcases 30 years of intricate and endearing etchings by Townsville artist Ron McBurnie.
Drawing inspiration from his daily life, McBurnie’s work captures the weird and wonderful moments that illuminate the everyday suburban existence.
Misbehaving dogs, ducks in box kites, cats jumping into paintings, and eccentric cane toad shooters feature in the carnival of quirky characters and landscapes by one of Australia’s leading contemporary printmakers.
