The Gallery M shop still has a great range of hand crafted items. The exhibition program has been altered with new dates to the end of the year.

It’s a Mystery

review: digita
digital art prints 2000-2020
by Glenda Bowen

Glenda bought her first Smart Phone in 2013, with its Note tool that allowed for sketching. Though designed for business use she experimented freely with this fun technology. Most of the images created during this decade were drawn directly on this device, using it as a tool to explore her social commentary on women’s themes, particularly as she had travelled through Latin America and Europe during these years.

Kiln & Flame

Kiln fired glass by Julie Pritchard
Flame work glass jewellery by Florence Wee

Florence Wee has been making lampwork beads since 2006. Each bead is personally designed and handcrafted from high quality glass. Julie Pritchard works from her home studio, creating a range of hand painted, kiln-fired glass items that are both decorative and practical.

Marking Time

Paintings & mixed media by
Svetlana Elliott, Maré Puksand & Alice Puksand

Each artist has drawn from their own imagination and experiences to depict buildings, related structures and their relationship to the marking of time, the environment, and plants and animals that may complement the images.
