WELCOME TO MEENIYAN ART GALLERY E-NEWS February 2024
Hello MAG Friends!
We are thrilled to present a diverse array of exhibitions for February. And join us for a Meet the Artist event this Sunday 4th at 2pm!
Gallery 1. "Light & Lace: A.I. Enjoys the Sun" by Adam Cochrane: Immerse yourself in a unique exploration of contemporary portraiture where the boundaries between the real and artificial blur. Adam Cochrane's exhibition challenges perceptions, inviting you to bask in the warmth of sunlight through finely detailed small-scale drypoint etchings and vividly colored oil paintings. Join us as we question the distinction between the real and the artificial, embracing the advent of AI as a powerful tool in the art-making process.
Gallery 2. "From City to Sea" by Bob Hickman: Bob Hickman invites you to witness the seamless fusion of the bustling cityscape of Melbourne with the tranquil beauty of South Gippsland's coastal-country region. His works on canvas serve as snapshots capturing fleeting moments of light on a city lane or the serene landscapes surrounding Wilson's Promontory. Delve into the balance of urban vibrancy and rural tranquility that defines Bob's captivating perspective.
Gallery 3. "Watercolour Wonder" by Florence Crighton: Step into a world of color, depth, and light as Florence Crighton showcases her passion for watercolour. From delicate flowers to cityscapes and tranquil landscapes, Florence's collection reflects a rich tapestry of subjects. Join us in celebrating her dedication to pushing the boundaries of watercolour art and explore the myriad possibilities it offers.
Join us this February as we celebrate the richness and diversity of artistic expression. Each exhibition promises a unique perspective, inviting you to reflect, question, and marvel at the boundless creativity of these incredible artists.
