Join us, JACA coordinators Hannah Raisin, Will Heathcote, and artists Pauletta Kerinaua, Pedro Wonaeamirri and Timothy Cook in the official Tiwi Jilamara exhibition celebration on Sat Apr 27, 3pm.
Donations to the Tiwi artists’ GoFundMe campaign amounted to a total of $3,660. This enables Pauletta, Pedro and Timothy to visit the Tiwi Jilamara exhibition and to enjoy an official celebration in Queenscliff.
Pauletta, Pedro and Timothy will also visit the local Queenscliff Primary School to demonstrate traditional ochre painting and speak about Tiwi language with the students. There may also be a bit of traditional dance!
Enjoy a two hour masterclass sitting among the bursting colour of our Lustre summer exhibition.
This will be an evening to satisfy your sight, smell and taste senses.
Join the ever knowledgeable fragrance stylist, Lucy Borland with master paint-maker and Chromatopia author, David Coles and chef, Donnie Grigau of Shelter Shed as they collaboratively take your senses on a smell, sight and flavoursome journey around the colour wheel.
An intimate event sitting at a very long table in the gallery with drinks and nibbles included.
Join Gwen Scott for an artist talk and demonstration during QG&W’s Lustre exhibition
Gwen Scott lives in Melbourne, Australia and works from her home studio producing original colour and black & white limited edition prints. Gwen works full-time as a printmaker and specialises in the reduction technique to produce her colourful prints. All her prints are hand cut and hand pulled by her and the finest 100% cotton rag paper, oil-based inks and linoleum are used.
Gwen’s iconography stems from her interests in classical mythology, the human form, animals, human lifecycle, surrealism, gardens & landscapes and the every-day.
Exhibition dates: Nov 29– Feb 24
Official (soft) opening: Dec 2, 3pm
Exhibiting artists: Danielle Creenaune, Philip Davey, David Frazer, Melinda Harper, Soula Mantalvanos, David Moore, Jiri Tibor Novak, Trudy Rice, Gwen Scott, Lisa Sewards, Lucinda Tanner and Wayne Viney.
Artist and QG&W director, Soula Mantalvanos opens her personal studio for the Bellarine Arts Trail 2018.
Soula will open the doors to her newly established studio, welcoming conversation about her practice and works that will form part of QG&W’s summer group exhibition, Lustre.
Having realised Parisian facades in oils, acrylics and etchings, but unable to return to Europe for over six years, Soula turned to her (previous) local Collingwood area for inspiration creating etchings of Gertrude Street and some of her other favorite local places.
