From Gallery on Sturt:
Marie Mason is a valued customer of ours and we've framed a wide selection of her linoprints. She's had two very successful exhibitions in our gallery, a solo exhibition also a joint exhibition with Anne Langdon.
Marie's current exhibition of reduction linoprints is at Backspace Gallery within Art Gallery of Ballarat. Her artworks focus on patterns of nature to show the beauty and diversity of creation. The presence of sunlight and shade in the landscape, twilight shadows and water, are all fascinating challenges for her.
This is a Backspace Gallery exhibition and runs from 11 November '21 - 9 January '22 Art Gallery of Ballarat, 40 Lydiard St Nth, Ballarat 3350
Kim Barter: Tickled Pink Opening the evening of 19 November 2021 from 5-7pm for the opening of Kim Barter's exhibition, Tickled Pink.
"When I look at my work I see layers of workings (paint), and changes in decision-making."
Two of our wonderful Goldfields Printmakers - Jan Palethorpe and Kim Barter have been selected for the prestigious Geelong Print Prize 2021.
Jan writes: Here is an image from our book GOLD
It is a book Jan Davis and I worked on during the past year together. We sent images to each other through the post. Jan Davis lives in Lismore NSW and we have known each other since I was a student at VCA in 1983! Jan was the printmaking technician then and we worked on many lithographs together.
The book contains 4 of my poems, which have been cut up by JD and reinterpreted.
It was a great project to work on together during this period of isloation.
Best wishes from the Goldfields Printmakers.

Dreamscapes & Landscapes is an exhibition by Anne Langdon and Marie Mason of central Victoria - both members of the Print Council of Australia. This print exhibition will be displayed at Gallery on Sturt in Ballarat. Both works are theme related with the landscape in mind.
"Anne’s works are whimsical expression of life and this sometimes means expressing issues that present many facets in terms of the pulls and sways of society and nature. This provides a vehicle for an exploration of a dream like state or dreamscape.
Marie is fascinated with her environment and explores this in in a way that is both expressive and sometimes colourful. She is never daunted by the need to layer her colours on to get to her goals for her vision. Both artists are experienced printmakers and are excited to further the printmaking agenda."
