Artists share new horizons

Thursday, January 25, 2018 to Sunday, March 4, 2018

A collaborative exhibition between two local art groups will see paintings and ceramics from Bayside artists on exhibition in early 2018 at the Gallery at Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre.

A Shared Horizon features paintings by the Brighton Art Society and ceramic works by the Beaumaris Art Group in an exhibition that considers landscape and environment as a unified theme.

Gallery Curator Michael Brennan said the exhibition was a great opportunity for the gallery to work with two of Bayside’s most active creative collectives.

“A Shared Horizon will include paintings and ceramics that highlight relationships between artists and their works,” he said.

Brighton artist Barbara Allen will exhibit her painting titled St Mawes, which was inspired by a trip to Cornwell, England.

“This painting represents the Cornish ports, which captured my imagination, particularly how the tide goes out 30m, the big cliffs and small white houses.”

Beaumaris Art Group Vice President Rose Nolan has created a unique pot especially for the exhibition.

“This collaboration is something new and we are looking forward to seeing how the two art groups meld together,”

Ms Nolan said. “It will be a unique experience for the artists and great for visitors to the gallery to come together and experience some lovely pieces of ceramics that are well-thought out and share the same theme of the horizon.”

The Beaumaris Art Group meets three times a week at their studio on Reserve Road in Beaumaris. The Brighton Art Society paints from Gallery at Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre three times a week.

The exhibition is running until 4 March The Gallery at Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre. Find out more here.
