Jimmy Pike's Artlines: You call it Desert, We used to Live there

January 31, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until March 29, 2015 @ 6:00 PM

Latrobe Regional Gallery

Jimmy Pike was a great story-teller. Touched with a lively sense of humour, his art depicts the dynamism of life in the desert: waterholes, the landscape, animals and plants, as well as Ngarrangkarni or Dreamtime stories, people, and modern technology.

Jimmy Pike’s Artlines is a selection of vibrant felt-tip pen drawings that bring the artist’s country in the Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia into glorious relief through renderings of spirit beings, flowers, stars and earthscapes.

James Gleeson Microcosms and Macrocosms

February 14, 2015 @ 12:00 PM until May 10, 2015 @ 6:00 PM

Latrobe Regional Gallery

The paintings of James Gleeson reveal powerful and complex relationships between the human psyche and human experience - between myth and reality.  His representations of natural and supernatural phenomena suggest a primordial past from which humankind has emerged and an apocalyptic future towards which humans are destined. Gleeson’s paintings are a potent reminder that human kind is one small component within the grand scheme of the cosmos.

My fibre – Textile art by Andrea McCallum

March 05, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until March 31, 2015 @ 4:00 PM

Courthouse Gallery - Yarram
Official Opening Friday 6 March 6 - 8 pm After 25 years of teaching Art and Textiles, mainly at Yarram Secondary College, the opportunity to be seen as an artist, rather than a teacher, was something Andrea wanted to strive towards. For 11 years she attended the annual Geelong Textiles Forum, increasing her skills in many areas. Working for days with talented artists was highly inspiring and she learnt a great deal from them. Travelling has led to numerous photos being taken, and these are often her initial inspiration. She also bought a book based on doors from around the world that made her look at doors in a different light. She enjoyed taking endless photos of doors in Europe and these have formed the subject matter of a number of pieces in the exhibition. She had planned to do the whole exhibition around doors, but developed other themes and really wanted to create a diverse array of artworks. She has a passion for working with natural fibres and is excited to be having her first solo exhibition in the Courthouse Gallery, Yarram.
