Light Up Our Parks

Light Up Our Parks

April 08, 2017 @ 6:00 PM

Hundreds of residents and children in the five townships from Pioneer Bay to Coronet Bay are busily making sculptures and other light-things ready for Luminous Streets starting on April 8th.  The first event in the bigger project called, the THE EDGE OF US, Luminous Streets will link all five towns on the same night with light powered galleries of beautiful community-made artwork.

The special opening of Luminous Streets will take place on the Grantville foreshore from 6.30pm and include a smoking ceremony.  The lights will turn on in every town also from 6.30pm. There will be different foods available in each town, a bar in Grantville, music, and a fleet of small buses to carry those without transport between the different galleries.

Parking in Grantville is at the Reserve and the short opening ceremony takes place on the foreshore between the Reserve and Pier Road.  People are encouraged to bring a torch and the whole family and wander amongst the luminous displays.

The galleries are nearly ready, but there is still time to wander down to one of the Waterline parks to help put them together.  Come and enjoy the lights.  Come and help us make Luminous Streets an event we will all remember.

Check the website and facebook pages for updates.  Don’t miss this unique event that could only happen here – in the Waterline towns of Western Port Bay. www.theedgeofus.com.au

Jeremy Kasper - Inertia

Jeremy Kasper - Inertia

from February 09, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until April 03, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Maffra

Sale-based artist Jeremy Kasper presents landscapes in motion in his first solo exhibition, Inertia.  This exhibition explores the environment in movement, from the point of view of an observer travelling in an inert state at high speed.  Each painting is based on a photograph taken from the window of a car.

He says:

“Using abstract landscape photographs as a point of departure, I let the process of painting guide me, allowing me to explore the medium and the action of painting. For me this is an inward and reflective practice, evoking a sense of atmosphere, a mood and emotion”.

Sue Fraser - Storylines

Sue Fraser - Storylines

from February 18, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until April 23, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Exploring the rich mythology of the everyday, the art of Sue Fraser is patently about people.

Her works are inspired by human encounters, enriched by a fascination with the narratives that are carried through generations in fairy tales, nursery rhymes and the mythology of individual families—not least her own.

Printmaking is the medium in which she explores and relates a lifetime of female experience—as a child, a mother, a friend and a wife.  She uses the family as a springboard into her wry commentary about the world at large. In her latest instalment, Storylines, Fraser presents themes that—whether or not we know it—will be strangely familiar to us all.

Owen Rye - Jars

Owen Rye - Jars

from February 18, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until April 23, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

South Gippsland artist Owen Rye is a maker of ceramic jars.

Rye’s wood fired ceramic jars and pots express the distinct characteristics of the medium. While producing vessels in ‘families’ of similar forms, each pot is unique and presents different qualities. Rye challenges the attitude that wood fired ceramics are uniformly brown by producing eclectic pots with a wide range of colours and textures.

While having shown widely throughout Australia and internationally since the 1970s, Jars is the celebrated artist’s first solo exhibition at the Gippsland Art Gallery.
