Local artists showing until June 23rd nanshe Gallery.
Diverse palettes and visions grace the walls of Nanshe Gallery helping to celebrate the first birthday of this superb art space. A collection of local artists, some having had successful solo shows with the gallery, boast cool images bouncing with vibrant energy.
A generous proclivity toward the absurd and strange stings with dynamic intent. Wafty and beady eyed, a triumphant form is off the leash in Sheree Fleming’s painted canvas. Her sharp observation and witty gibes scoff at the notion of tradition.
A kaleidoscope of pretty paint dazzles successfully as Jill Orr works up an old favourite, the floral still life. Liberally applied oils build strong form and space subsequently revealing a buttery appeal akin to heavily iced baked goods.
The robust community of artists nurtured by the lively atmosphere of Newcastle’s art hub is expressed in this gathering. Barbara Nanshe embraces this local content providing an opportunity for established and emerging artists to reach a broader audience.
Nanshe Gallery is located at 148b Beaumont St, Hamilton and is open Wed-Fri 9-5, Sat 9-3. The Birthday Show runs until June 23rd.
