Resonance – Kellie O’Dempsey Live.

Easter weekend 2010, Retrospect Galleries presents artist Kellie O’Dempsey, live and in exhibition. Renowned for her live drawing performances, Kellie has amassed an amazing collection of drawings and paintings of musicians, dancers, actors and other performers in action, all around the world. In this show she presented highlights of her work at a decade worth of music gigs and festivals, from small town shows to major international events. Some of our favourites included Tex Perkins at Repentance Creek, Jack Johnson at East Coast Bluesfest, and The Kills, trans-Atlantic rock-n-roll duo at Benicassim in Spain.

Kellie O’Dempsey live – interpreting the surrounding environment, audience and the musical improvisations of Bryon Bay locals The Knie, Sunday morning comes alive in Retrospect Galleries shop front room, mesmerised the gallery crowd and the passing locals.
