An exciting group exhibition of four regional artists in the newly renovated Newstead Railway Station in central Victoria.
‘Seeing things anew – from an odd angle, in an unexpected light, coloured differently, somehow suits my nature better……’
Robert Dessaix ‘And so forth’
This exhibition explores the process of artmaking through the use of pattern, colour, shape and form. It echoes an important connection to the unique community and landscape of central Victoria.
Artists include Georgina Duckett Julie Patey, Sally Roadknight and Sandra Tobias, living and based in the central Victoria.
These professional artists have all had successful careers in the arts; exhibiting internationally and nationally, teaching, project managing and coordinating community art spaces for community arts and festivals.
The diverse range of work includes mixed media, textiles, prints, bound books, collages and paintings, all with a connection to community and environment.
The Newstead Railway Station, originally built in 1880s, has been recently refurbished by VicTrack and was made available to the community in 2015. Since then the gallery has held exhibitions and workshops and is now known as the Newstead Railway Arts Hub.
It is exciting to see the first exhibition for 2016 kick start with this unique exhibition showcasing mid-career regional artists. The Arts Hub provides a shared space for artists to exhibit their work, and involve the local community in workshops and artists talks.
The exhibition is open from Sat 6th February- 27th February
Open: Fri, Sat, Sun, 11am – 4pm
Address: Dundas St Newstead (directly across from Railway Hotel)
