Off the wall and off the hook

The opening of the Margot Westhorpe show was a smash hit with our viewing audience. The Quest Hawthorn Community Project Wall is proving to be a wonderful platform for unearthing and exposing the high quality artistic talents of Boroondara. We had a bit of a buying rush on the artworks, which is a great outcome for Margot and a true vindication of her artistic talents.

Margot's artwork is driven by an exploration of identity and touches on aspects of domesticity and gender. Predominantly collage in nature, with paintings in the mix as well, there is a keen sense of a focused and driven pursuit of a refined language. The amount of time required in the creation of some of the works charges them with a certain energy that is drawing viewers in for closer inspections.

'On the Wall' will run until 28th June and is open 7 days a week. Again, we thank our wonderful partners at Quest Hawthorn for their continued support of the artists and this important gallery space. And a big congratulations to Boroondara local artist Margot Westhorpe for a cracking show!
