Back in March there was a delightful exhibition at the Queanbeyan Arts Centre Gallery that celebrated 30 years of creativity at the Spiral Gallery. The exhibition displayed a wide range of creative arts and styles that are represented by the pics below. I included the gallery list and the ephemera as well.

Places and people of Interest – Kate Hine and Maxine Price @ Form Studio and Gallery

Until May 23 2017

Kate Hine creates wonderful collages in black and white that draw on house and home in a life that involved regular moves. The works are drawn from family memorabilia and drawings she has done at earlier times.

Maxine Price creates marvellous pottery figures that have a sense of fun and at times an aura of melancholy.  She has a set of creations now that model the style she has refined to high art. There are only a small number but each one is a charming and heart warming reflection of humanity.

Pics of works by both artists below.

Lynne Flemons Walking at Weereewa: Abandoned Shorelines @ Form Studio and Gallery

Until May 23

Lynne Flemmons created a set of beautiful works that reflect the shorelines of Weereewa (Lake George). The works have a truly delightful set of connections with the region. Having travelled through the area hundreds of times the sight of wire, fencing, timber and other normal detritus from years of sporadic farming and human habitation. The images below show the style.

There are wonderful layered activities in the world of photography and Emilio Cresciani has created a lovely set of layered pictures in which there is face and sets of images overlaid that can tell a story linked to the face

My pics were produced on the phone but they were on some sort of filter that made them look like beige where are they were actually a vivid blue.

Below are some sample pics

Shake it up @ Nishi Gallery

12 March – 26 March 2017

Shake it up is an exhibition of up and coming early career artists and the pictures and other artifacts they have produced are a rich mix of styles and skills.

These are recent works of a group of artists who do photography, sculpture, collage and paintings. The room was an explosion of colour and form that drew you in to explore the complexity of method and content. The dominant style is abstract.

The artists involved in the exhibition are:SANNE KOELEMIJ, JOSH OWEN, FRANKI SPARKE, CLARE JACKSON, LUKE CHISWELL, MEI WILKINSON, EVE AUSTIN WHITE, S.A.ADAIR,  AMY CAMPBELL, SIAN WATSON, DIONISIA SALAS, CATHY LAUDENBACH. COLE BENNETTS + NETTI VONTHETHOFF

In the Pics below I have tried to sample the range to give an idea of the vibrancy of the group’s production.
