James Gleeson Microcosms and Macrocosms

February 14, 2015 @ 12:00 PM until May 10, 2015 @ 6:00 PM

Latrobe Regional Gallery

The paintings of James Gleeson reveal powerful and complex relationships between the human psyche and human experience - between myth and reality.  His representations of natural and supernatural phenomena suggest a primordial past from which humankind has emerged and an apocalyptic future towards which humans are destined. Gleeson’s paintings are a potent reminder that human kind is one small component within the grand scheme of the cosmos.

Latrobe Regional Gallery


Exhibition Celebration: Friday 27 March, 6.00pm – 8.00pm

The Politics of Perception presents works by artists Symons and Targett that map critical issues surrounding our environment. Both artists poetically and potently chart landmarks of anthropocentric disaster that cannot be found on any atlas or world map. 
This exhibition is presented in association with Art + Climate = Change 2015, a Melbourne-wide CLIMARTE festival seeking to harness the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

Reducing Landscapes - Fred Williams & John Nixon

March 21, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until June 28, 2015 @ 6:00 PM

Latrobe Regional Gallery


Exhibition Celebration: Friday 27 March, 6.00pm – 8.00pm

The paintings of Fred Williams and constructions of John Nixon highlight the process and expression of abstraction. For both artists, nature or more specifically landscape has been the starting point for an enquiry into the distillation and articulation of sensory experience.

Forest Cynthia Boyle

March 27, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until April 28, 2015 @ 4:00 PM

East Gippsland Art Gallery

Cynthia’s work examines the constant movement coming from light and shadow, the sudden burst of flight from a startled bird, the mist that changes the trees into monochromatic ghosts, the constant competition for sunlight, a cool change on a hot day, the textures of the forest floor, human presence and the many small and often unnoticed creatures and plants that live between the trees.

The use of layered colour and image along with flattened perspective works to make the perception of positive and negative shapes deliberately ambiguous.
