The Stunning Bird Hanging With The “Strange Fellows” At Charles Clarke


Strange Fellows Brewing is doing something great, and I’m not just talking about the Nocturnum Dark India Pale Ale that was on tap when I last visited. If you’ve ever been, you’ve likely checked out the Charles Clarke Gallery, maybe with out even knowing it. This crisp, clean white annex off the tasting room is programmed to showcase local emerging artists; you can marvel, wet your whistle and buy some art all in one stop!


Currently on view is Robert Spooner’s exhibition, Okavango. The show reveals glimpses of this region in Africa – one of the world’s largest inland deltas, located in northern Botswana. This is where Spooner – a Strange Fellow’s regular, veterinarian, and photographer at large – spends time each year, sharing his expertise with the people and their animals. His intimate relationship with the place is plainly evident in his photos. The image of the Lilac Breasted Roller, with its striking colour palette, immediately caught my eye. Hang it as a statement piece anywhere that needs a colour pop.

Artists: Robert Spooner | Piece: The Lilac Breasted Roller
Price: $250.00 | Gallery: Charles Clarke Gallery @ Strange Fellows Brewery (Now ­- Aug. 28)
