This summer, artist Max Gimblett celebrates his 80th birthday. In marking this milestone, Gow Langsford Gallery has published From Grafton to the Guggenheim. The 175 page hard cover book is part biography - part scrapbook and focuses on the gallery’s long relationship one of the country’s most noted artists. It provides some background to his personal life; covers his past exhibitions and his working environments and showcases his latest exhibition, one day in the afternoon of the gods. We also invited others who have worked with Max to share their stories and join with us in celebrating. Happy 80th Birthday Max!
