Bethany Wheeler: Imprint, Place & Memory
6 March 2015
An exhibition of works by artist Bethany Wheeler reflects on her relationship with the Red Bluff cliffs in Black Rock. Imprint, place & memory is presented by The Access Gallery @ Bayside Arts & Cultural Centre.
In this exhibition, Wheeler has combined kiln formed glass, photography and locally foraged specimens such as insects, flora, ochre, sap, salt, charcoal and clay to create a series of mixed-media wall installations and sculptures. These highly evocative works map - and make sense of - Wheeler’s experience of the Red Bluff cliffs, a site where the artist spent much of her childhood and where she continues to visit today.
Wheeler has been exhibiting for 15 years and has several years of experience as a studio technician and lecturer, teaching and assisting in kiln forming and casting workshops. In 2013 she established 1000 Degrees Glass Studios, a communal kiln forming and cold working studio in Cheltenham.
The Access Gallery is an exhibition program run by The Gallery @ BACC which offers local, emerging and mid-career artists the opportunity to exhibit within a professional, public gallery setting. The Gallery is currently taking applications for its 2016 Access Gallery program. For more information go to bayside.vic.gov.au/thegalleryatbacc
Imprint, place & memory will run until 15 March.
