This is an amazing place to visit for it’s beautiful building and exhibitions – MONA, Tasmania.

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.  vvv red car vvv vvvvv vvvvvv

A fun meeting was held last night to discuss our forthcoming Art Exhibition titled ‘Seven’.

.

We had lots of food, made some art using pens and ink and scissors, had some wine and talked alot.

Just as we were saying goodbye we remembered that we actually didn’t discuss any details regarding the exhibition.  It didn’t matter really because we are such an organised lot and we had several members of the group missing anyway.  One was travelling (lucky thing), one at the ballet (en pointe), one lives such a long way (and has cows) and another wrestling with replacing some technology in her business.  All were missed very much. We ate: Stuffed peppers (greek style) with tsatsiki, roast baby potatoes, garden salad with avocado, rhubarb crumble with cream, sparkling rose and tea and chocolate.

I’ll post over the next few weeks some of the work happening towards our exhibition.

Beryl’s art focus is on colour for new paintings to be exhibited later this year.

Stockroom exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery and Mixed Media work of Ness Alexandra.

Stockroom exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery and Mixed Media work of Ness Alexandra.

Paintings, drawings and collages. Ness Alexandra’s art practice is an exploration of the female psyche. Part of that exploration has seen her focus on domestic objects, creating a collection of Still Life’s that describe the interior of a woman’s world.
With this current exhibition, SHE IS…, Alexandra is delving into the realm of female expectations of body shape; commenting on the pressure mass media and the beauty industry places on women today. She has created body shapes that combine flat collages of magazine advertising with textural paint; over-laid nude paintings with dress patterns; and moulded beauty products with plaster to form bronzed mirrors.
With this exhibition, Alexandra is pushing the boundaries of how women are expected to conform to body image. She also produces beautiful still life’s and classic ink drawings that touch on her own psyche – one of discontent…
“We need our discontent in order to feel and enjoy our desire, and if events do not conspire to make us feel dissatisfied, we will arrange our own privations.” 

Stockroom Selection Exhibition 

From August this year Cambridge Studio Gallery is starting the first of our new stockroom exhibitions. We have selected works from artists that have had a history with the gallery as well as promoting some interesting new artists. There will be an eclectic selection of paintings, sculpture, jewellery and a few surprises!

While the gallery’s business model still represents artists by providing space for their exhibitions, we will be value adding to the viewer experience by dedicating the upstairs gallery space to the Stockroom Selection. Works will be displayed in a less formal “salon-hang” that allows clients to purchase and take home works on the day.

Congratulations to Cambridge for their first stockroom exhibition and best wishes to Ness for her upcoming solo exhibition.
