March 2017  Exhibition

“Electica” - Patricia Deller-Smith (Main Gallery)

“Ginger” has named this exhibition with her own word, Eclectica, because of its use of an unusual collection of art pieces including knitted paintings. Ecletica was inspired by yarn bombing which she was involved with in Childers. It also includes slumped, kiln fired and copper foil glass work, pottery pieces with some yarn work incorporated and various types of prints. Ginger uses subjects that involve people - who they are, where they live, what they do or where they have been. You will see the way Ginger enjoys using colour and texture to make her statements/social comments in a satirical or “tongue in cheek” way .

“A New Direction” - Kaye Kerner (Front Gallery)

This exhibition showcases a new direction in Kaye’s paintings, from ‘outback red country’ to
‘green grass and trees’. Kaye’s favoured medium is pastels, which she was introduced to while living in Yowah (160kms west of Cunnamulla). Kaye has been an artist for her whole life. Kaye and her husband have retired to Murgon, where she hopes this year to open a gallery.

“The Surface of Water does not Reveal its Depth” - Winka von Fahland (Third Gallery)

This exhibition is a collection inspired by Winka’s 2010 travels by yacht, with which she endeavors to portray the vast and endless ocean vista which still haunts her  mind. This trip led to an emotional rediscovery of Winka’s time on large bodies of water. The ocean does not reveal its depths, but one can wonder and reflect on what lies beneath the surface.
