Tim Barklay’s artistic practice has to date consisted of charcoal portraits, capturing his subject’s personality in a still, monochromatic style. For his
Micro Exhibition, the high school Art and Drama teacher is drawing on his other hobby, miniature modeling, to create a series of sculptures from found
objects as he explores the relationship between the human and the natural worlds.
Greg Fisher’s Wonder Emporium of Mathematical Explorium
Engineer, Greg Fisher’s creative outlet is constructing sculptures based on the mathematical principles that inform his day job. Exploring the history
behind theoretical shapes and patterns, Greg’s Wonder Emporium aims to encourage a new audience to marvel at the beauty of mathematics.
Home is what you make it
Traveling from their native Tasmania to their new life in Moree, Josie Birchall and her family made homes of river banks, road sides and national parks
in the nomadic dwelling of their caravan. This experience of living with less in an unconventional home is the basis for her body of work “Home”.
Birds of a Feather
Teeny Runzer is a keen bird photographer. She recently extended her artistic practice to creating sculptures using recycled materials, in particular silverware.
Teeny uses the various designs on the handles of forks, spoons and butter knives to reflect light, creating an effect of feathers and wings.
Drawing inspiration from our natural, ever changing environment, Maisie Johnson creates artworks using textiles and watercolours. For her Micro Exhibition,
Maisie uses texture, colour and form to creative a positive, calming effect on the audience and bring a sense of serenity to her gallery space.
Artists Janet Doyle, Lesley Hawker, Kate Owen and Terri-Ann Crothers connect as mothers, wives, friends, farmers and artists. Making works individually,
collectively, literally and symbolically, the four women create visual metaphors of their rural existence. The flora, the fauna, the objects and their
sense of place inform their practice in individual and group exhibitions which depict who they are and where they are from.
Painting in a semi abstract style, Nick Osmond is influenced by familiar names in Australian art. Sidney Nolan, Adam Cullen and Ben Quilty inspire Nick’s
spontaneous brushwork and figurative narratives.
