August catch-up…

12 08 2012

Goodness, we’re nearly at the half-way mark through August and we’ve not yet spread any of the love….better late than never, so here’s a bit of a job lot…

First up, Jas biz…

 

Mark Gerada

Mark Gerada is a multi-disciplinary practitioner who lives and works in the mountains west of Sydney. He is a painter, illustrator and teacher with a background in architecture, ceramics and design. He has exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Brussels, China and Malta.

In this selection of works Gerada demonstrates his ability to combine abstraction and mixed media. Through the application and layering of media he creates space within the picture plane.

His dynamic brushwork evokes the act of painting where the subtle use texture creates depth.

To arrange an appointment to view or for media images, please call 0417 235 916 or contact the gallery via the website.

And then there was Nigel’s starring role at Heidi

 

[We love that work Nige – super, super cool. We can feel a re-emergence coming on.

And then there was the fabbo snap sent around work by one of the Rangers…

 

 

…which shot us straight down memory lane to Rose Montebello’s wonderful Knot…

 

 

And then there were last week’s highlights – like another circulated work pic of winter on the Brown…

 

 

And news of Alex’s upcoming show, opening this coming Thursday night (16th August) at Beaver…

 

Be still our beating heart  – we love Alex’s work. If Megsie manages to shrug off her current state (flu-blown) and make it across the Monaro for the Ranamok on Wednesday, the Gang may well manage to swing into the Beaver as well. Joy. (Just a reminder to our American friends that Beaver is the name of a gallery in Canberra…)

Ausglass Conference Canberra 2008: last Wednesday…

28 01 2008

Well the Gang has finally beaten a retreat to Wyndham after a frenetic week in the ‘Berra and we can now turn our full attention to bringing you a review of the general shenanigens. We must confess, though, that we didn’t do the Conference proper (just reading the program put us to sleep quite frankly…and besides, we had to gallery sit the Hunks show in any case), but we certainly did the rounds of most of the openings and managed to catch up with all our favourite pals.

Wednesday night was the precurser of things to come (registration for the conference commenced the next day); Beaver Gallery launched a double banger show featuring Mel Douglas and Mel George/Jeremy Lepisto, and the usual list of suspects turned up to get some swilling practice under their belts for the looming long weekend.

Both Mels (affectionately known as Big and Little Mel to avoid confusion) are Canberra gels of course, but Mel G now lives in Portland, Oregon, where she runs Studio Ramp with husband Jeremy Lepisto (who the Gang had the good fortune to run across at Pilchuck a coupla times – he’s a great bloke.) We always like catching up with these guys – they’re genuinely nice people…and, it goes without saying, we’re into their work as well!)

So it was the beginning of the rolling interstate invasion/reunion: Netster was back from Adelaide, along with Hils, Vicky and Stephen…Maureen, Damien and Michelle formed an advance party for the Victorians…Lee blew in from Sydders…

But it was, for the most part, the regular Beaver crowd.
