Locals go on show
Friday, 14th March, 2014
Three Broken Hill artists feature in four new exhibitions that open tonight at the Regional Art Galley.
Works by Geoff De Main, Fay Attard and Glenda Beeston will be on display with each artist giving guests a unique offering.
Gallery Manager Cathy Farry said she was looking forward to the opening and anticipated a good turnout.
“Having three local artists exhibiting will usually bring in a crowd,” she said yesterday.
“A lot of the works will also be available for sale.”
Geoff De Main’s latest effort, entitled “New Works” fuses classical Greek and Roman influences with present day tattoo designs.
His show will also feature paintings made in and around the city’s streets over many years.
Broken Hill ceramic artist and teacher Fay Attard will display a series of bowls and tea pots inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony in what will be her first solo show.
Mrs Attard’s work will be displayed as an installation and include her personal interpretation of several elements of the ceremony.
It will also be the first solo exhibition for Glenda Beeston who titled her collection “Spacetime”.
Using oil paint and taking inspiration from the creation of the universe, Ms Beeston’s work interchanges from simple and sparse to vividly complex.
Some never before seen pieces from the gallery’s collection will also be on display tonight in a portrait exhibition titled “Faces from the Collection”.
Prints by John Olsen and Charles Blackman as well as recently donated paintings by Judy Cassab will be among the highlights.
All four exhibitions will be on display until April 27.
The Art Gallery will open its doors at 6pm. Refreshments will be provided and drinks will be available.
