Visitors are very welcome .

CURRENT EXHIBITION

6 November to 2 December  – Opening 3pm Sun 6 Nov

 

MAIN GALLERY
Stephen Leek

Stephen came to Bellingen from Melbourne in 1993 and studied with the artist Ted Hillyer from 1993 until 2003. With Ted as a mentor, he was introduced to painters like Max Beckman and Bonnard, as well as German expressionism. He describe myself as a modern figurative painter.

“My practice as a painter is about recognising elements in the landscape and people in nature and seeing them as formal shapes that can be arranged together to make a strong composition; then I introduce my owns sense of colour to evoke an image that is hopefully poetic.”

 

STUDIO GALLERY
Walking the Land – Tess Cullen

With an art practice that spans over 40 years, Tess’s current focus is landscape painting, showcasing the beauty of our natural environment, taking her back to the beginning of why she picked up a paintbrush in the first place. Alongside her painting Tess finds the art of creating mosaics from the recycled and upcycled bits and pieces of our modern lives equally satisfying.

This exhibition Walking the Land captures the beauty of our natural environment. The devastation and regeneration of forests after the 2019/ 20 fires and the places of rest where connection to the natural world is as simple as breathing
