Together, QG and Graeme Peebles established the Peebles Print Prize (PPP) in 2017, a prize aimed to be representative of the highest level of printmaking in Australia and solely focused on the intaglio technique. The success of the inaugural PPP17 and then following, PPP19 are proof of the ongoing enthusiasm for printmaking in Australian. Coinciding with the Geelong Gallery Acquisitive Print Award, the two prizes form a nationwide cultural focus for printmaking in Geelong and the Bellarine. QG is extremely grateful to PPP21 sponsors; 360Q, the Borough of Queenscliffe, the Streeton family, Oakdene Wines and 44 Frame Factory who assist to make the prize possible and for providing QG with the pleasure of being able to facilitate the PPP21.

DATES (extended)
Exhibition dates: Jul 15 – Aug 23, 2021
Official closing: TBA

En plein air’ or plein air painting refers to the act of painting outdoors – a technique that has both the artist and subject at the whim of the elements. Variables that the artist can traditionally control such as light, movement and colour, suddenly become an unpredictable and thrilling challenge. Warren Cooke and Evan Salmon have both embraced the method, immersing themselves in their environment to create works driven by a nostalgia for place and that reflect a practice of persistent, and patient, looking.

David Moore Mixed Bunch Oil 40cm x 30cm $2000 study unframed

David Moore Solo Exhibition

DATES
Exhibition dates: Jun 24 – Jul 12, 2021
Official opening with David: Sun Jun 27 from 2pm – 4pm

The paintings of artist David Moore appear strikingly simple – a vase of flowers; a reclining tutu; a table of crockery; an Australian bush landscape. Always beginning with what he knows and what he is surrounded by, Moore paints with a freedom that presents everyday objects and places in a way that makes them feel extraordinary. A lemon suddenly becomes something “rather special” when viewed through the frame of Moore’s studio. It takes on the solitude of the space,

“Having an exhibition with Leigh is quite special for me.”
– Jim Pavlidis

“Likewise.”
– Leigh Hobbs

The characters of Leigh Hobbs adorn the pages of Australia’s favourite picture books, and the cartoons of Jim Pavlidis have become a part of the great Australian weekend newspaper reading ritual, but seldom are their works presented outside of these contexts.

Marian Crawford Congregation Unique State 45 x 37cm

Marian Crawford / Andrew Totman

Apr 22 10:00 amMay 10 5:00 pm

DATES
Exhibition dates: Apr 22 – May 10, 2021
Official opening with the artists: Sun Apr 25, 3 – 5pm

Hysterical swirls. Tendon like lines. Concentrations and constellations of circles. Repeated. Interlinked. Layered. 

Drawing on shapes that echo across centuries, Marian Crawford’s intricately constructed books and collages are brought into dialogue with Andrew Totman’s visceral monotypes in an exhibition presenting each artist’s unique language of patterns. Totman’s rich, earthy palette of reds and ochres combines with Crawford’s playful greens, blues and yellows to create a complex visual conversation that evokes ideas of nature, biology and culture.
