If in Melbourne please check the dates the gallery is open and come in to have a look. Our official opening is on Saturday 29th August, the Exhibition Dates are 26th August to 12th Sept Wed-Sat 11-5.00pm.
If you are not in Melbourne but you would like to discuss some of the work call the Gallery and talk with Sue or Ness.
In between making sculpture, painting, drawing, cutting, assembling etc we must stop for coffee, do a little gardening and rest. We recently held our last meeting (food galore) in the gallery to discuss the final points. It was mid winter bring your own everything. One brought a big pot of hearty soup, crusty bread, rosemary chips (fries), dips, chocolate cake plus so much more. Wine too. TThe title of our up coming exhibition will be SEVEN.
Interpretation of the cultural symbol; Seven
The regularly exhibiting “Out of the Box” group have chosen to explore seven as a theme. Culturally seven has been a significant symbol, with themes such as Seven deadly Sins, Seven Wonders of the world, Dance of the Seven veils, etc…
The diversity of the theme is reflected in the response by the individual artists to the group theme. Subjects range from views of Melbourne, interiors of a gallery, seven colour spectrums as defined by Isaac Newton, seven sculptures from the imagination and even an artist has challenged herself to complete seven unfinished works…
Lynette has told me that she has been influenced by Klimt which you can easily see in the one with the patterning and rich tangerine colour and the other is an expressionist abstract painting that just has to be made by every artist for the release of energy. This one in particular has a strength and engery that needs to be seen in real life. Will post exhibition information that will come up in the next few months.
Lynette Webber is a painter, printmaker and all round artist in our out of the Box group and you can also add sculptor to that. Lynette is also working towards our exhibition titled SEVEN. As we are all still experimenting with ideas and media I can’t at this early stage tell you where SEVEN fits into the title. All the same he is a beautiful character and I can’t wait to see him finished. Love the ears!
Virginia McNamara was the lucky person that was gifted this trip to Tasmania (off the eastern mainland over the sea and to the south of Australia). Tasmania has always been famous for it’s magnificent landscape, walking trails, mountains, beaches etc. More recently it has become the place to go if you love Art because there is an architect designed purpose built private museum called Mona. Here are a few images from inside and outside the gallery. Hope you enjoy seeing them.
