  • Closing Date: Sunday, 11 June 2017
  • Opening Time: Tue-Fri 11-5pm, Sat 11-4pm, Sun 11-3pm

 

Scott McFarlane: A visual and aural magpie, McFarlane litters his work with references to history, art history, politics and poetry. Headlines in the newspaper, conversations with friends, and radio interviews also make their way into McFarlane's artwork.
Garry Currin: Currin's landscapes are not allegories conveying meaning through symbolic representation, nor do they seek to imitate reality. Rather they employ, in the fashion of lyrical abstraction, the emotive and expressive qualities of colour, shape and brushwork to capture first the artist's feelings, and subsequently the viewer's.
Lisa Rayner: Lisa's work is an on-going study of the plasticity of paint through continual re-imagined and re-experienced painted spaces. Lisa draws on the perceived connection we feel with 'place' and hopes to find new connections within the medium and through the act of painting.
