You’ll find the Nexus Gallery nestled in the historical Old Butter Factory complex. It is run solely by volunteers and is an important exhibition and gathering place for local artists and friends.
The Nexus Community Gallery hosts four members’ group shows each year, one of which is the Members’ Art Prize. The remainder of the year the gallery features month-long exhibitions by solo artists or groups of artists.
There are two exhibition spaces: The Main Gallery and The Studio.

‘BOTANICA’ Donna Simeoni
I am enjoying exploring plants………pods and flora in general, delighting in their shapes, textures and myriad of complex varieties of form. In this body of work you can see how I have developed from lyrical to almost symbolic……fragmenting shapes using overlays to create transparencies to a simplistic essence.
‘Lith Expos’e’ Ross Thompson
Hand-crafted photographic prints that explore the wide range of possible printing outcomes within the alternative photographic printing process of Lith. The images are varied in subject from Australian bush scenes to historic buildings in Spain. I have been printing black and white photographs for a while now and love the magic of seeing an image emerge in the darkroom, so when I discovered the Lith process, I was immediately entranced.
‘A Natural Selection’ 5 artists
Largely inspired by the natural world, five local artists present A Natural Selection, a stunning collective of visual art of subtle and bold colours and textures. Penel Gamble’s story-telling shines through her exquisite paintings and drawings. Carol Simons’s work ranges from subtle atmospheric impressionism to bold interpretations. Chetan Bloemhard’s paintings explore the connection between the seen and the unseen in the natural world. Sandy Robinson’s organic ceramic forms finished by natural firings and glazing connect with the earth. Carole Helman’s paintings, drawings, prints and photographs reflect her fascination with patterns in nature.
‘STRING OF PEARLS’ Glass Art by Chris Fahey
My journey working with glass as an artistic medium continues. I am still often surprised by the different qualities of glass. It can be shiny or dull, transparent or opaque, smooth or textured, or all of these qualities within one artwork. The glass holds the light and different thicknesses, colours and textures can really make a piece come to life. I love the science behind the fusing process and enjoy the challenge of calculating firing schedules and exploring new techniques to create unique artworks.
