From pattern and plan
This is an exhibition of sculptures and series of drawings that have been made during this quiet and isolated 2020 year where there has been plenty of time for reflection, nostalgia and memory.
Kate says that, 'Patterns and plan drawings have always been a feature in my life and certainly influence my artworks. This exhibition is a focused upon this influence and serves as a quiet and measured reflection upon the way my grandparents helped to cultivate this interest in me. The work in this exhibition represents the dance between implied space and sculpture'.
Exhibition May 31 - June 24
Ear to the ground
Lesa Hepburn (NZ)
The practice or characteristic of carefully gathering information; a state or mindset of attentiveness; In my third year on the South Island of New Zealand, my awareness of sound, light and the weather has heightened in this extraordinary place of contrasts. I am walking the beaches, discovering visual delight, finding intriguing objects, exploring the new plants growing, documenting the landscape, and creating new works.

An exhibition by Sarah Wallace
Whimsical, Joyous and Instinctual… these are some words that describe the remarkable work by Melbourne artist Sarah Wallace.
Sarah paints abstracted landscapes ‘en plein air’. Sarah says that, “These techniques enable me to paint directly what I am seeing, hearing and feeling”. She describes her technique as being an, “instinctual process”, and that she, “tunes into the colours and connects with what is happening at the time”.
Sarah studied fine art at Monash University where she completed her post graduate degree in Fine Art. The artist has also studied under William Harding, Godwin Bradbeer and Terry Batt, and has been teaching painting for over 20 years. Sarah’s work was recently in Australian House and Garden as part of the overall redesign of Mirabel House in St Kilda where she collaborated with well known interior designer Diane Bergeron.

An exhibition curated by Aaron Hoffman
Torika Bolatagici, Genevieve Douglas-Byrnes, Aaron Hoffman, Jessica Ibacache, Ryo Takara, Anne Scott Wilson, Chaohui Xie
‘Not Home’ features works by artists responding to an open-ended provocation of ‘home’. Home, or the idea of home, comprises a set of beliefs or myths that reflect both personal and cultural influences. The slightest disturbance to our attachment of home challenges security and stability. 'Not Home' presents seven artworks by artists expressing this dislocation and the creative processing of issues that betray the promise of home. Activated by social, political and spiritual thinking, and the application of diverse mediums; the works shown generate a dialogue between each unique voice, engaging the commitment of art-making and what it is to be an artist.
