Congratulations Mark!


On his sale of ‘Wilderness’ to James Wallace! And a huge thank you to  all the Dornwell supporters who came, bought, commented or helped spread the word for our first group exhibition. We packed down at Railway Street Studios on Wednesday last, a tired but happy bunch of artists. Next stop, studio open day on the 7th December. Save the date now …

On a personal note, I’m packing for a soujourn in the UK at the end of the month, and looking forward to some serious gallery visiting. So look out for a free-range Dornwell blog in Oct-Nov!

Opening night at Railway Street Studios

All went very well, Railway St Studios was packed and there were special visitors and sales. All good.

Trevor Bayly’s two drawings in this exhibition are derived from an ongoing project “An Iconic Form Amid the World’. Mark Bosley’s content and composition focuses around light, shadows and mixing nature with man-made subjects. Jo Dalgety’s work represents memories of footsteps, layer upon layer of human history. Amy MacKinnon is interested in using intuition and play as a method of discovery, a means of finding new ways to look at the world and ourselves. Susan Thomas works with still life as the basis of her abstractions. Jane Thorne is intrigued by the obsessive nature of collectors and evolutionists. Her paintings are dominated by images of insects. Raewyn Walsh is the studio’s sole jeweller. She works with a variety of materials and subject matter. More information about the artists will be available at the gallery.

The exhibition is still on until 17 September so take a peek if you are near.
