CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Glenice Ware
New Ground – Between Order and Chaos

 31 October – 1 December 2019

Paintings, textures, mixed media, journals and sculptural forms all tell a story of connection to place and the vitality of our diverse landscape. Glenice Ware’s new works show her process in working between a familiar expression of country and finding new ground towards abstraction.

Anna Di Mezza
Poscards from a Twilight Zone

 31 October – 1 December 2019

Anna Di Mezza’s body of work has a strong narrative thrust, drawing in part from a rich fund of imagery found on the internet/vintage magazines. This exhibition presents collage-like arrangements of chance encounters, old Hollywood lovers and anachronistic retellings of history. Di Mezza’s work displaces characters and sometimes objects from their homes in vintage photographs, juxtaposing them into absurd and at times humourous scenes.

Bron Newman
Travelling South Towards Abstraction

 31 October – 1 December 2019

The paintings in this exhibition originated from a roadtrip journey, south from the Blue Mountains. Created in response to images of southern NSW landscapes captured by artist Bron Newman, the exhibition features contrasting styles – some more realistic and some more abstract. The trip itself was several years ago, yet the images have provided continuing inspiration for the artist. Newman’s body of work demonstrates the change she has made in her artistic expression, from more realistic representations of landscape, through its evolvement to abstraction.
