UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Glenice Ware
Moments on the Land
25 January – 18 February 2018

In her exhibition, Glenice Ware marks a celebration of her journey as an artist, her love of country and the strength of her connection to place.  

From time spent exploring country from the Blue Mountains to the western edge of NSW, Glenice’s works reveal the vistas and fine details of significant landmarks, the stories that have been uncovered and the colours and textures of the land.

On canvas, paper and in sculptural forms, these expressive pieces uniquely combine acrylic, ink, fibre, found materials, soils and stitching.

Stephen Travers
Botanica Fragmented
25 January – 18 February 2018

The exhibition Botanica Fragmented reflects artist Stephen Travers fascination with the light, colour, textures, shapes, patterns and spirit of the Australian bush. To emphasise these elements, the painted image is framed similarly to a view through a window.  Without the familiarity of whole objects, the eye is compelled to roam the canvas, seeking meaning as it attempts to categorise and scale the visual fragment it sees. While the eye moves within the boundaries of the canvas, the mind can go beyond its edges, finding commonality with the individual elements of the painted image, evoking its own sensory experiences and memories of the Australian bush.

Bern Ferraz
Found in the Blue Mountains
25 January – 18 February 2018

Found in the Blue Mountains is a salute to old, discarded yet still beautiful, still useful objects that the artist finds in the homes and shops, and on footpaths of the Blue Mountains. Depicting old hand tools with beautiful wooden handles; old, well-read and well-loved books in people’s bookshelves; kitchen utensils still being used every day, Bern Ferraz shows respect for these items that have been around much longer than most of us have and gives them a “second life”. Using either soft pastel or oils on masonite board or paper, Ferraz employs traditional still life techniques.
