November 2019 – Cross Currents

Opening Saturday 2 November with the launch at 2pm, this exhibition showcases the work of six women who have maintained a deep interest and connection with mark-making and creative practice since working together through Visual Arts studies at Bendigo TAFE.

Open each Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm, Saturday 2 November to Sunday, 24th November, 2019. Download the exhibition flier.

The artists exhibiting are: Cherryl Fyffe, Barbara Semler, Anne Tyndall, Judith Warnest, Joan Halpin and Liz Carkeek. A short profile of each is available on their exhibition page.

Each of these artists has an affinity and connection to her surrounds, and this provides a potent source of inspiration which is reflected in the highly resolved and individual work. The range of works presented include printmaking, drawing, watercolour, collage and textile works, ceramics and contemporary image making processes.

There will be a Workshop on “Visual Thinking” on Saturday 16th November 1pm to 3pm that will provide participants with a hands-on exploration of thought, word and material. Using a brainstorming exercise, the words ‘found’ through this process are then translated through manipulation of clay medium to create a concrete visualisation of thought. Similar in effect to concrete poetry.
