Plus One Too
Artwork in various media by members of the Red House Group Inc

11 September – 11 October – (HALF GALLERY)
This half gallery exhibition features artwork in various media by members of the Red House Group Inc….PLUS….the artwork of a junior artist (under 16 years) with whom the member has an artistic connection. The works will be displayed adjacent to each other.
Two years ago, a similar exhibition was held in Gallery M with many favourable comments. In fact, the junior artists’ work received much of the credit. It is a big thrill for a young artist to have their work displayed in a professional gallery space, and the work is bound to once again delight visitors with the range of talented youngsters’ work on show.
The junior artist can be a family member, relative, or friend, and the work doesn’t have to match in media or subject matter. However, some members have used fun themes, portraits of each other, two interpretations of a still life, family activities etc. To avoid favouritism, some junior artists’ work is a collaboration between several children.
The Red House Group is a not for profit, artist managed organisation that was initiated in the early 1990’s. Members work in this exhibition includes paintings in oil, watercolour & acrylic; there is photography, mixed media, textiles, printmaking, glass, and porcelain painting.
Each year members are given several opportunities to show their work in Gallery M, reaching a wide audience from visitors to the Marion Cultural Centre.
Over 1,600 artists have joined the group since its inception, with approximately 300 artists maintaining current membership in any given year. The group manages Gallery M on behalf of the City of Marion.
New members are always welcome. For information about becoming involved with the Red House Group, talk to Gallery M staff.
