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.

These two are photographs of some still life set ups that I Anne Warren have yet to attempt. I’m liking the one on the left but not the one on the right. My rooms are currently full of borrowed bottles, jugs, vases from friends and neighbours for me to paint.
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.
Museum of Old and New Art
The Museum of Old and New Art is an art museum located within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It is the largest privately funded museum in Australia. Wikipedia

Sorry I can’t credit this artwork as I don’t have that information it is however current at Mona.
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.
This is Lotte. She and her friends will be in the next exhibition
I have put a call out to all our members for some pictures and will post some of their responses.

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