As artists, working in the studio and creating art can be a very lonely and individual pursuit. Town Hall Gallery has aimed to prevent this by bringing together five artists who work in a wide range of media and who have never exhibited together before. By the end of this exhibition, they will have gained knowledge of each other's working methods, which may inspire their future artistic endeavours.
"After the success of the Assemble exhibition last year, we thought this model of selecting a small group of diverse artists to show together was a great way to introduce them to other artists and new ways of working. We found that the artists tend to keep in touch after the initial exhibition and many work on future exhibitions together. Town Hall Gallery is just the catalyst for such meetings" says Mardi Nowak Curator.
Viewers will get a taste of each artist's body of works which include abstract painting, mixed media works, drawing and caustic painting.
With such a variety of unusual techniques and materials, viewers are encouraged to attend the In conversation program on Saturday 20 February from 2pm to 3pm where most of the artists will be discussing the inspiration behind their works and how some of their effects were created.
