EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST - Eco Dyeing Workshop with Raella Morrison

Tamworths own Eco Dyeing guru, Raella Morrison, is offering a workshop with limited spaces here at Weswal Gallery. Raella will share her experience and expertise in this practice as she helps participants create and apply non toxic Eco Dyes using our native flora. Students will come away with an Australian merino wool jersey scarf and some cotton experimental colour samples. 

Weswal Gallery is currently seeking expressions of interest. We will run the workshop in the garden at the rear of the gallery, with a short 'foraging tour' to be held in the parks nearby. Please call the gallery on 02 6766 5847 or email your name and contact details to info@weswalgallery.com.au. Once we have the numbers (6+) we will confirm event details.

$175.00 pp (morning tea included - bring your own lunch and some cuttings from the garden if you wish)

Gabrielle Collins: City & Bridge

Exhibition 7 September - 8 October 2017

Opening 8th September @ 6pm

 

"In the exhibition ‘City & Bridge’ I am drawn again to urban spaces in varying locations.

I paint whatever resonates or engages.

 

This may be the architectural dynamics of buildings on the water’s edge or the strong verticals of a bridge. It may simply be a street on a rainy day.

 

My initial response then merges with remembered experiences, often filtering through

and modifying the painting process”  - Gabrielle Collins.

 

Gabrielle is represented by Weswal Gallery, Tamworth.

Tim Allen: Fissure

Exhibition 7 September - 8 October 2017

Opening 8th September @ 6pm

"This exhibition is about geography, geology, contour, place and memory. The drawings were created en plein air in the gorge country of New England.

At the heart of my art practice is a paradox; an expressive, bold, immediate and spontaneous mark-making that is also aligned to an approach that has structure, discipline and a sense of stillness and contemplation" - Tim Allen

Tim is represented by Defiance Gallery

Opening Night
Thursday 13 July 2017
6.00-8.00pm

Artist Statement:

My history and experience working in the building and construction industry as a boilermaker welder by trade, has in some ways had an impact on my paintings and design. Which in turn has influenced me on my journey to working as an artist in the two-dimensional mediums of drawing and painting. My work in graphic design via tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter is an extension of my overall life experience in algorithmic form.

The advancements in technology and applications has opened up another pallet for me to express myself out of the physical and into the binary world. Calling on my years in construction and building, some of my works have an industrial feel to them brought about by gathering inspiration and initial materials and colours from the real world and bringing them into my art.

Opening of 'Where Is He Now' Watercolours by James White

WHERE IS HE NOW: JAMES WHITE

A collection of postcard sized artworks

Opening Saturday 10th June at 3pm
Exhibition 8 June - 9 July 2017

James White is a watercolour artist based in Armidale, Northern NSW. 

"The appeal with watercolours is that they enable me to paint images with strong clean colours which are full of light. My subjects are generally drawn from remembered images, from visual incidents observed in other countries or sourced in my local environment. I focus on telling a story with, where possible, a hint of humour." 

- James White
