Caroline Graley solo exhibition

 Opening event Sat 24 November, 2018 2-4pm. "I have always had a passion for life drawing. Having been a dancer before working in the Visual Arts, the human figure has been central to my practice. Sculptural forms evolved from dance movements, painting colourations reflected emotional states and life drawing has been a consistent discipline; the focus of my work this year has been to return to the human form to redefine my purpose".

Works in porcelain by Jill Loader in the SParc gallery.

This body of artwork explores the association between objects, memories and the artist's attraction to the Morwell Centenary Rose Garden.  "When I visited the rose garden in winter the colours had disappeared but the garden was full of organic, textured shapes.  While I sat in this winter rose garden I contemplated the idea that everything changes and there is often a desire to collect and keep objects to help relive memories."

formation June 9 - june 30

An exhibition by Christopher Miller that will focus on growth, colour and texture.

These works have been driven by how the physical nature of an object can shift based on our expectation and visual appearance of said objects. A shift in normality changes both the viewers’ expectation and perception of an object. The viewer is forced to question if they can look beyond the perceived surface qualities to appreciate the actual object in its role and value. Opening event on Saturday 9 June from 2pm.
