The Scallop Wars

O+W Art Exhibition Lakes Entrance.

“The Scallop Wars” were they real or just a storm in a scallop shell. Circa 1972 and the Melbourne papers were full of the racial unrest between Australian and the newly arrived Greek Scallop Fishermen… was it a turf war, about illegal catches, quota cheating, pub violence, criminal undertones…the stuff of small town folklore…

It will all be on display at the O+W art exhibition @The Slipway Lakes Entrance…
