Apperceptions

A half gallery exhibition of paintings, mosaics & fabric collage by
Liza Merkalova, Ivan Rehorek & Caroline Rehorek

Our dreams are a journey into the places we once knew, or maybe haven’t been to so far.
People we knew and loved are also there, as are all the people we haven’t met yet. Here we represent these apperceptions, the parts of our own stories – our lives past and yet-to-be are all present here – so welcome to the parade!

Skillizaphrenia – Gone Haywire

A quarter gallery exhibition of contemporary glass sculpture by Stephen Skillitzi

Stephen is an internationally recognized glass artist, based locally at his Brighton studio. His work ranges in size from domestic pieces to monumental installations. His recent blown glass explores a unique complexity of colour and wild design. He delights in challenging the status quo on many levels, with his unorthodox usage of media and technique, and his contemporary but quirky concepts for ‘the Art message’.

Kicking Dust

A quarter gallery exhibition of artwork in various media by Janette Humble

Janette has a connection with the outback and bush life, hearing so many stories that tells tales of humour and courage, resilience and mateship. This exhibition of soft pastels, acrylics and oils will tell those stories and share the beauty and wonder that keeps bushies from never leaving.

It’s All in the Expression

A half gallery exhibition of artworks in various media by members of the Red House Group Inc

‘Art is a form of expression. It could be the colours we use, the technique we apply, or even the topic we focus on’.

The Red House Group Inc is a not for profit, artist managed organisation that was initiated in 1994 by a group of like-minded artists. Over 1600 artists have joined since then with approximately 300 members in any given year. Each year the members are given several opportunities to show their work in Gallery M, with an exhibition title to challenge their creative instincts – this time being ‘It’s All in the Expression’

Togetherness. In Action

A half gallery exhibition of artworks in various media that celebrates and showcases local Indigenous artist’s with group and individual works.

2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of the Australian formal reconciliation process. Reconciliation requires deeper understanding of the impact of British colonisation in order to progress as a nation. The theme this year is More than a word. Reconciliation takes action. This City of Marion Reconciliation exhibition includes partnerships with Warriparinga Men’s and Women’s groups. Participants in these groups come from many diverse Indigenous backgrounds coming together in unity and support.

2021 exhibition timetable

Gallery M is a versatile exhibition venue, that can have up to four exhibitions running concurrently.
This is achieved by utilising large free standing walls, that can be configured to create quarter, half or whole gallery spaces.
