RAW Newcastle will be launching its showcase, COMMUNIQUE this Friday 25th July at the Great Northern Hotel. The evening will see 30 emerging artists spanning across the fields of fashion, music, photography, visual and performing arts under the one roof, for one night only.
Hunter Valley based fine arts photographer, John Lechner will be one of the 30 artists whose creative talents will be on display.
“I am proud to be exhibiting amongst an emerging group of talented artists. This is a first for Newcastle and a fantastic opportunity for homegrown creative talent to get their work out there”, said John.
John’s passion for photography has grown from an obsession with his first Kodak Disc camera as a young boy, to now travelling Australia and the world to capture the most beautiful sights.
“RAW gives emerging artists a platform to launch their creative careers. I’m currently trying to lock in an exhibition in New York City for early 2015 to take my work from the Hunter to this great city. First Newcastle, next stop New York”.
John will have eight limited edition pieces on display and available for purchase at the event. For more information or to arrange an interview, please phone 0400 074 535 or email media@
