Jenny Reddin - The Power of the Flower
Flowers are used to represent an emotional response to life events - death, birth, celebration, commiseration, joy. Floral tributes are a tangible representation of emotion; an expression of love, grief, shock and empathy. They are spontaneous and almost immediate. There is no planning or strategy involved, they evolve and grow without government intervention, planning permits or permission given. There are no rules or instructions about how to offer a tribute, they are a direct expression of the voice of the masses with more emotional power than any other means of mass communication. This series seeks to express the communicative power of a solitary bloom. It is not about the flowers themselves but about the emotional impact they impart.
29 September - 16 October 2017 ONLY ON FOR 3 WEEKS!
The Music of Painting
18 August - 25 September Opening Sunday 20 August 2-4pm
Former architect Robert Doreian, believes that music, like biology and science, can be defined in modular numbers. As such, via musicians spanning Igor Stravinsky to Dave Brubeck to Philip Glass, ‘The Music of Painting’ explores the spaces between the notes. The rhythm. Drawing on art movements the Bauhaus and De Stijl as well as artist Paul Klee, a grid of squares underpins the musical alphabet upon which the artist's acrylic primary colours dance. Rather than a literal interpretation, the canvases reflect an emotional response to varied musical scores. Respectfully, experiments continue.
7 July - 14 August - Opening 9 July 2-4 pm
Supporting the Next Generation, local, aged 13-24 artists.
Giora Hoffmann 26 May - 3 July
It happened to me just four years ago, like being struck by lightning: imagination, colours and subjects came together like a big thunder ball! I've never painted with oils before and it took me few weeks to understand that this is my medium and that I really enjoyed creating colours.
And on top of that was the subject: How we live today with the urban sprawl mixed with high rise buildings versus the surrounding environment which does not want to surrender. It’s not just the way we incorporate the trees, plants and other creatures into our lives. It’s about the harmony that we should have with it; the relationships between human dwellings and natural habitat.
Wanderings - 14 April - 22 May 2017
Ceramics by: Amanda Christians, Babette Bruders, Glenn England, Heather Thomas, Jenny Rowe, Julie Ayton, Juliet Widdows, Lee Goller, Lynne Lindsay & Sharon Twining
and mixed media by Lee Goller
The term “Wandering” implies movement, a journey. In my work I explore the contradictory elements inherent in my wandering, for a brief moment, through this complex, interesting and incomprehensible existence. My awareness of fragility and impermanence compete with wonderment, fascination and joy, both in the intensity of intimacy in relation to other beings, and in the intricacy and connectedness of everything in existence. The works are collage, mixed media and ceramics. They contain surreal and fragmented imagery and markmaking, The assorted characters represent fellow creatures, human and non-human through my personal interpretations of myth and fairy-tale. Lee Goller.
by Lesley Dickman & Sharman Feinberg
3 March - 10 April 2017
Lesley Dickman and Sharman Feinberg come from opposite sensibilities in presenting their exhibition 'Artefacts'.
Having studied Fine Art together at Monash University in the 1980's, they came out of the then popular Neo-Expressionist Movement where large canvases of luscious and sensuous paint were encouraged. This movement referenced the early 20th Century German Expressionist painters such as Ludwig Kirchner, Emile Nolde, Otto Dix and Max Beckmann who reacted to the social conditions around them including World War I. Other Expressionist artists such as Edvard Munch and Gabriel Munter depicted their own personal angst. Remnants of these influences are evident in Dickman's and Feinberg's work.

COLOUR! Joan Bell - One Year On!
3 June - 11 July 2016
An Art at Linden Gate discovery, Joan Bell is powering along creating large, colourful canvases!
Since her first exhibition where she used acrylic and inks to create organic, undersea worlds, Joan's work has become more structured and detailed but no less interesting! Oceanic themes still feature and are joined by floral excesses and her fun loving natures comes to the fore with her chatty birds!
