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

Art Exhibition 2015 Meeting at Evelyn’s House

Art Exhibition 2015 Meeting at Evelyn’s House
I don’t have any pics from our meeting.  The meeting was held for us to plan and discuss the 2015 exhibition we will have.
Discussion for meeting = 5 minutes
Food, Salads, Pumpkin Pie (a first for most of us Australians), beautiful big juicy sweet strawberries and cherries, fritatta, champagne, coffee ….  = 150 minutes
So you see it was a very busy meeting and loads of fun which we hope will translate into wonderful pieces in our exhibition.
Below is a wonderful and very supportive gallery for our group.  If in Melbourne pop in as it is well worth a visit.

This work titled Deforestation is a poignant comment on the ongoing problem of the removal of our forests . The artist Shane Coutts is one of the artists featured in the current exhibition “Magic Landscape” from Araluen Centre. The work is a timber construction that cleverly plays with perspective and perception.

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.
