Natasha Bieniek + Victoria Reichelt at Gippsland Art Gallery
Two of our amazing artists have exhibitions opening next week at Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale:
: She Hangs Brightly
The miniature portrait was created as a form of keepsake - a memento of a loved one to keep close to the heart.
In She Hangs Brightly
Natasha revisits the miniature in a suite of new paintings, which also recall the rich colouring and tonality of seventeenth century Dutch painting.
Exhibition dates: 18 August - 7 October 2012
The playful paintings of Victoria Reichelt
linger somewhere between geometric abstraction and hyperrealism. Catalogue
features new and recent works to explore book spines and library shelves as sources of unexpected aesthetic delight. The works consider the motivation behind the collecting impulse to form a colourful essay on our love of books.
Exhibition dates: 8 September - 4 November 2012
The opening of both exhibitions will be held on Friday 7 September 6pm and will be accompanied by artist talks from both Natasha & Victoria. We're looking forward to it!

Natasha also has a solo exhibition at dianne tanzer gallery + projects from 20 October to 17 November 2012. Please e-mail [email protected]
