An exhibition of artworks in various media by members of the
Red House Group Inc
3 – 26 September (WHOLE GALLERY)
The theme for this exhibition relates to the title ‘Please Repeat’. The concept was conceived by Red House Member Anita Tang, and was designed to encourage artists to use repetition in their work.
Like rhythm, repetition helps to create a sense of movement within an artwork by recurring lines, patterns, shapes, or other visual elements. Repetition is all around us in nature and our own urban environment so there is so much inspiration to create for this exhibition.
With over 65 artists taking part in this exhibition, their works will cover a wide variety of styles and mediums. As well as paintings in oil, watercolour & acrylic; there is photography, mixed media and textiles. 3D work showcases mosaics, glass & ceramics, sculpture, porcelain painting and jewellery.
Such a diverse array of artwork can be challenging to display, but Gallery M, with its versatile layout, provides the exhibition team a fresh space to work with every time. This is achieved by repositioning the large movable walls, a special feature of Gallery M that sets it apart from other similar spaces. These walls can also be used to create separate exhibition spaces, when two or more separate exhibitions are on display at the same time.
