Come along to Art of Lunch with the theme “Hollywood Surreal” on 12-2pm Sunday 25th August and witness three talented women take the stage to animate another outstanding Art of Lunch event at Avalon Restaurant. The menu is inspired by a Hollywood diner peppered with suspense and served with a twist.

The Avalon is a Katoomba landmark, its retro style is widely popular. Meet an artist who will introduce their works displayed within the Avalon dining room. Then, relax and enjoy a unique musical performance by our featured musicians.

Each month from May until October, we have a different theme, exhibition, artist and musician. The Avalon culinary team are inspired by the changing art themes and deliver a creative menu every time.

We create events that people just keep coming back for!

VISUAL ARTIST:

Artist, Anna Di Mezza’s intriguing ‘Hollywood Surreal’ suite of paintings is reminiscent of the 1950s classic era of film. Some of her paintings are structured with repetitive elements in reduced dark-toned colours, like the negative frames of an old film spool. Others feature images from outer space and conjure beautiful, but ominous, scenarios inspired by filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick. Models looking like vintage magazine cover-girls with meticulous attention to fashion and hairstyles are so focused on their image of themselves that they seem unaware of a looming catastrophe. Di Mezza displaces figures from the glamorous lifestyle to harsh mountainous landscapes, or thrusts a gigantic crystal into their midst, creating chance encounters with unresolved endings.

MUSICIANS:

Renown singer-songwriter Miriam Lieberman from Sydney, plays the unconventional kora (African harp) and joins with local cellist Kate Adams, the duo creates lyrical compositions with lush harmonies, soaring strings and melodic vocals. Miriam’s vision of the feminine world is liberated from from the Hollywoodian myths of happy housewives or wannabe starlets – step back from artifice and celebrate nature. She blends the mystique of African rhythms with Western instruments and describes her incomparable songs as being infused “with African rhythms and Wanderlust”. Miriam’s recent album, ‘Full Circle’ was described as “a thing of intoxicating beauty” (Rhythm magazine), while her previous album, ‘Birds of the Moon’, made Album of the Week on ABC Radio National.

Cuisine:

The Avalon's culinary team accepted the challenge of creating unique menus specifically for Art of Lunch themed events, and for August their edible Hollywood Diner food is served with a twist and will hold us in suspense until it’s revealed.
