Discreet Montage

Discreet Montage

from July 23, 2016 @ 9:00 AM until December 11, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

The observational cinema of Barry Brown & Irene Proebsting.

Discreet montage features a selection of experimental (non)fictions including post-industrial reportage, ambient family portraits and found quotidian abstraction.

Shot on Super 8 film and edited in camera, the films are un-staged spontaneous recordings, utilising chance and improvisation as structuring devices to generate atmospheric narratives.

Similarly, the soundtracks privilege the accidental, predominately focused upon aesthetic errors and psychological ambience – a silent cinema fabricated from open-ended scores, magnetic tape manipulations and unusual guitar tunings.

The films are lyrical, unconscious constructs, featuring the familiar and the unfamiliar, a discreet cacophony of aleatory auras and everyday illusions.

The exhibition screens video projections with ambi-phonal sound from the original Super 8 prints.

OBLIQUE Glass from the Victorian State Craft Collection

from October 08, 2016 @ 9:00 AM until February 05, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

Oblique showcases a selection of glass from the Victorian State Craft Collection (VSCC. The glass component of this collection has been on long term loan to Latrobe Regional Gallery since 2002. The VSCC comprises of 465 artworks in a range of mediums (glass, ceramics, metal, textiles, wood and leather) collected from 1977 to 1990, which were produced by some of the most innovative, experimental and non-conformist craft practitioners of the time.

The exhibition highlights works that diverge from the ordinary, using innovative techniques and combinations of processes such as sandblasting, devitrification, engraving, glass blowing, kiln forming, acid etching and frosting.

Focus is placed on craftsmanship, form, refraction, colour, narrative and symbolic content. The selected works are bold and often combine functionality with personal expression, presenting a mesmerising and concise reflection of Australian studio glass during the 1980’s.

Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

In the 200 years since J.M.W. Turner rose to fame, his images of land, sea and sky scapes have lost none of their electrifying intensity.

In his lifetime Turner travelled extensively throughout Europe, particularly after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. All the while he prolifically produced images of landscapes and towns.

The Turner Gallery, acquired by the Gallery in 2013, was first published in 1875 after the artist’s death, and includes 120 fine steel engravings after some of Turner’s most popular images. The extensive collection ranges from views and landscapes in Great Britain, Germany and Italy, to studies of ships, mythical scenes and panoramas from classical Rome.

Landscapes in Light - Graeme Myrteza

Landscapes in Light - Graeme Myrteza

Gippsland Art Gallery - Maffra

Graeme Myrteza is a proud family man, farmer and painter and has lived and worked as a farmer in the hills of Thorpdale all his life.  As a child he enjoyed drawing and painting but after leaving school he found that full time farm work and family left little time for his creative adventures.  In 2005 Graeme’s life changed forever when his son, Brett, passed away.  He found therapy through painting helped deal with the loss of Brett and with encouragement from his family and friends, he has had a paint brush in his hand every day since.

Graeme says, “Brett never saw me paint, but I know he's with me when I am painting, he has a part in each work I do and that's why I put his initials in every painting.”

“I am passionate about painting; I love the smell of the paints, turps, canvas and above all – the challenge and satisfaction of capturing the dramatic play of light on the gum trees, mountains, rivers and valleys of our magnificent country.”

Graeme hopes the viewer enjoys his paintings and that they will in some way re-kindle fond memories of their own experiences in the Australian bush.
