A sense of place; a sense of space- Australian landscape paintings

Uncategorized

I’ve just spent a lovely afternoon at the Louis Joel centre viewing the works displayed in ‘A sense of place; a sense of space’ – Australian landscape paintings by Dovey Dee. Dovey is an American artist who lives in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

I’ve attended a fair few exhibitions at the Joel over the last year, it’s my new local community artspace and I must say that Dovey’s exhibition has been my favourite to date. The exhibition was curated really professionally, with enough space to breathe between works. Along each long wall are framed field drawings created with oil pastel – these little studies create movement and texture and help engage the viewer in a story about the rugged and ever-changing terrain they now find themselves in. The 3 centrepieces are large and finished with bold colours. Their line on the far wall sets a mood that is quintessentially Australian. It’s a tale of land meets sea, dry to wet, honey tones illuminated by blue-white and the crackling earth and trees encompassing it all.

The exhibition will be on until Thursday 19th July, for those in the Altona area.

I have a little info in ‘Australian Artist Magazine’ as a member of Art With Altitude (AwA). The article is written by the delightful AwA convenor Rose Cuthbertson, she describes her experience of hosting a successful  annual exhibition featuring art from members of the Mount Glorious/Nebo creative community. Mount Glorious + Mount Nebo is a rural bush land community west of Brissy in the D’Aguilar National Park, they have a lot of creative talents up there and will continue the annual tradition of AwA this year on the 17th and 18th of Nov. Although it is a bit of a commute for me now that I am in Melbourne, I have been so honoured to have had the opportunity to exhibit along side these talented artisans 💜💜

Art with Altitude 2016

Uncategorized

For the second year in a row, I have had the privilege of exhibiting with the wonderful Artists of Mount Glorious and Mount Nebo at the second annual Art with Altitude Exhibition which took place over the weekend of the 19 and 20 November at the Mount Glorious Community Association.

The 2 days were a huge success, with funds from artwork sales and stalls going towards the Community Association. This year the Association doubled the people through the door an estimated 1000 people came out, and the sales also doubled to $25,000 of sales.

My weekends consist of painting from morning to night, I often come out of the studio wafting of turpentine and go to work on Monday with dried paint on my forearms. I feel both excitement and trepidation as I work towards 2 exhibitions, one of which is my very own solo exhibition at Graydon Gallery in New Farm. I am beginning to feel like it is all coming together…. a long way to go still…. and a lot more weekends of painting.
