Sue Webb Exhibition
8th - 31st August
March 4th & 5th
Sue Webb is a 75 year old woman who came to painting later in life (when she retired).
She loves to paint whether in oils, gouache or acrylics and she especially loves using colour.
Over time her paintings have become more abstract.
Deborah Baldassi Exhibition
9th - 31st August
Deborah Baldassi - Deborah Baldassi always dreamt of being an artist… The idea of starving in a Parisian garret whilst producing angst-fueled masterpieces appealed to her. However, the lure of creature comforts (and a taste for quality red wine!) got the better of her, and she compromised by becoming an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer.
After a career spanning over 40 years and boasting clients as diverse as “Better Homes and Gardens”, the Wiggles and the Communist Party of Australia, she has returned to her first love - painting.
And while her masterpieces are not angst-ridden, and the Parisian skyline still eludes her, a lifetime of honing her skills and accumulating experience has left rich and complex residues beneath the flowing barnyard funk that has always characterised her art.
Rosemary Warminton Exhibition
9th - 31st August
Rosemary Warmington paints from her beautiful Goodwood Garden studio. Her contemporary paintings are drenched in colour, influenced by the natural world and the Australian light and landscape, in styles that reflect pure abstraction and traditional landscape.
Rosemary’s most recent significant solo exhibition, Colour Echoes, was at BMG Art in February 2021. This was followed by a group exhibition ‘Are You Home Tonight?’ at The Main Gallery in September 2021. With tertiary qualifications in both social work and business, Rosemary was a CEO of a not-for-profit organisation for many years, retiring in 2017 to paint more. In 2012 Rosemary was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).
“My abstract paintings are echoes of the colours and forms I’ve seen, remembered, or contrived from my travels over time. I paint with saturated colours using mixed media, line work and scratchings into the canvas in an intuitive process towards an unknown outcome. I want the colours in my paintings to echo within us, to awaken that feeling of ‘aliveness’ that can be hidden and forgotten in our daily grind. My works are, therefore, about experiencing our human condition more deeply, through colour and its impact on us”.
