Featuring the work of Fleur MacDonald, Stephanie Monteith, Anie Nheu, Catherine Rogers and Kaye Shumack

Opening Friday 5 December 6.00 – 8.00pm

Through both the medium and discourse of paint five artists draw the viewer close to engage with intimate spaces and scales, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Come and enjoy the work of these wonderful artists and their varied approaches to the medium of paint.

In January 2015 there is the choice of a full-week workshop, Drawing for Beginners, or a three-Sunday workshop, Drawing Through Journey, with the well known artist and drawing lecturer Li Wenmin.  In the drawing workshops, not only do participants receive practical tuition but also a wealth of knowledge about the historical and cultural contexts of drawing.

These courses are suitable for beginners and emerging  artists and established artists who want to take a fresh approach to their practice. Age 16 or over.

More workshops to come!

Commences Sunday 22 February 2015, 2.00-4.00pm

In addition to this exciting news artist and academic Kaye Shumack will be facilitating a two-hour Artist’s Workshop from Sunday 22 February 2015. This workshop offers practicing artists in any medium a space for discussion about their works-in-progress. At each session, every artist is invited to speak about their works-in-progress, to gain insights and feedback from other artists at the session. The intention of this workshop is to create an open space for dialogue and critique, to support every artist in the development of existing and new directions. Contact us if you’re interested!
