Limited edition prints; works on paper escapades

'out of the box"

Posted by on | |
A recent visited to the Tweed River Gallery -a picnic no less... was a great experience & an opportunity to travel out of Brisbane for a short time. Besides the traffic, the gallery is accessible & a frequent stop for us. Whilst there we saw the Out of the Box exhibition a selection of New Zealand prints from Solander Gallery. I'm familiar with several of the artists works having seen them online however in person a print is so much more isn't it? There are woodcuts, screenprints & etchings...A terrific selection, above is one of  Alex Milsom's intriguing works...See here to view more of the artists ..Solander Gallery New Zealand
 Also on at the same time is Corpse Graham Peebles, Gregory Harrison, and Anna Austin, Australian artists who specialise in the printmaking technique of mezzotint. Beautiful velvet blacks!

In the adjoining gallery a series of paintings by Euan McCloud.
Surface Tension: the art of Euan Macleod 1991–2009 Monumental beautiful & dark. Shame it didn't have more space. I would have liked to have those works occupy the entire space....

Sometimes i feel that the ceiling needs to be higher there at the gallery...unusual that the architects have made a great building with all aspects of the environment outside capable of being view from the inside... but the exhibition space battles with itself depending on what is on show.
There is quite literally so much to see here....pack a picnic & enjoy.
