Warrandyte Artisans – Awesome August

The third Pop-up exhibition for Warrandyte Artisans will be held, naturally on the last weekend of the month. August 27 and 28 from 11-4 each day, so come and meet the current exhibiting artists.

Wayne Rankin and Denise Keele-bedford will showcase artworks from their studios North of the river.

Following on from the beautifully intricate botanical works by Bernadette’s Walsh and Peta Harrington, who showed alongside the stunning ceramic works of Pip Bell in July; Wayne and Denise endeavour to maintain the quality standard of the previous shows.

Underlying both artists’ production is an intrigue with the rhythms and subtleties we find in nature. Wayne states that he is, “totally inspired by the natural world ……textures….form, colour and patterns are an awesome source of inspiration and creativity.”

Denise states that, “In creating an artwork, I seek to have subtle details revealed to the audience as they engage. From a distance there is an overall view, however, deeper and more detail is discovered as the viewer moves in.”

The artists will showcase sculpture, monoprints and mixed media. They will be onsite to chat with visitors about their art practice and production offering an insight into the life of an artist.

Pop the dates in your diary August 27 and 28 at The Art Space, Community Centre, next door to the Library on Yarra Street, Warrandyte.

The ongoing program is supported by the Warrandyte Community Association.

Warrandyte Artists who would like to participate in the continuing monthly pop-up exhibitions are invited to contact the group to book a weekend to showcase their artworks. Please contact Denise at: denisekeeleb@me.com

BLOOM nothing but flowers

An adored subject in the visual arts for their exquisite variety, tactile attributes and sensory traits, flowers have forever been a source of inspiration for artists. Symbolic representations of love, awakening, rebirth and life cycles, this exhibition celebrates the visual splendour of flowers and the emergence of Spring.

This exhibition features artwork by MAVA Inc., a non-profit organization supporting Victorian visual artists: an eclectic mix of both emerging and experienced creators.
