Today is set up day... excited to be helping set up ‘The Magic of Nature ‘ Exhibition at forest edge Stone Gallery in Kallista. It is always lovely to exhibit with a group of soulful people creating and sharing there world. The exhibition tube until late December with lots of inspiring art. I do hope you get the opportunity to explore this lovely space and enjoy the beauty of the art and beauty of the surrounding area.
Art Exhibition: 30B | Paintings by Dar Bryers and Jann Hill | Meet the Artists: Sat 17th Nov 2018, 2-5pm | Exhibition runs: Friday 16th Nov to Sun 18 Nov 2018, 10–5pm Daily⠀
A collaborative exhibition featuring the works of two complementary Melbourne artists: Jann Hill @hilljann – watermedia and collage artist and Dar Bryers @darbryers – symbolic/ spiritual artist and muralist. ⠀
Jann works with watercolours and coloured inks, painting freely and loosely with the rhythm of paint on paper, then adding line and pattern in the later stages to create a finished piece. For her collage pieces, Jann uses elements from her watercolour paintings, matching intricate pieces of pattern and colour to develop the overall image and design.⠀
Her artworks are inspired by nature’s little stories, translating the world around into patterns, shapes and colours, conveying feelings and experiences rather than realistic representations.⠀
In contrast, Dar’s painting style is succinct symbolism and geometric spiritual representation, using aerosols and acrylics on different base types.⠀
With a passion for street art, sigils and symbolic messages, her style is bohemian and feminine, encompassing themes of harmony and wholeness as an individual and within the wider world. ⠀
She aims for her artworks to inspire a feeling of calm and clarity of mind.⠀

Just one room of @tommyward.artist exhibit... the amazing floral arrangement from the roof, the colorful works and the amazing gallery space takes you into another world! Well worth a look! I might be a tad biased because talented Tommy is a friend and the gallery is part of the @landdekommune complex where I run my workshops but I think everyone who attended the opening night would agree they went home uplifted and inspired and the compelling works with their complex and multilayered stories probably haunted their dreams ! #innernorthmelbourne#artgallerymelbourne#artexhibitionmelbourne#cliftonhill#localartist#hauntyourdreams
Tomorrow night it's all happening at buddstreetgallery at 6pm come see SICK PUPPY by Aurora Campbell
Mental health, body image, self perception, inner turmoil. Technology, dating, fucking, not fucking, your sexuality, your pussy, your tits and your thighs. A self portrait; Self love marrying self hate. Your reflection arguing with your perception. The fun of self destruction quickly bettered by the boredom of sensibility. Empowerment fighting with shame.
Sick Puppy by Aurora Campbell is a highly personal exhibition reflecting on inner conflict with the navigation of love, relationships and selfhood in the digital age. Explored through a series of intense, stark, black and white ink on paper, the work is drawn from personal photographs; a typical example of the millennials iPhone camera roll.
The show is a celebration of both female fragility and strength; both in spirit and body. Sick Puppy is an erotic, raw and honest body of work, at times confronting and stark- drawing on loneliness to connect the viewer with the work. ◦
So excited - my solo show is just around the corner. Hanging is next Monday after a lot of preparation. I’ve been working consistently developing my visual stories of joyful connection. I love the colour play and all I’ve learnt by being immersed fully in my art. Such an amazing adventure... hope you can share my art adventure and connect with some of your own stories through art.
Motivation is the energy that makes our minds and bodies move. It pushes civilization to the greatest heights, the darkest oceans and outer edges of the universe. And yet in this modern world, it’s far too easy to become distracted and in turn stagnant in life. ‘Nah, f*ck it’ has become an ethos for contemporary society and is, without a doubt, the easiest option. However, what’s easy and what’s right rarely fall under the same umbrella.
We proudly present to you Nah F*ck It: an exhibition from five Melbourne based creatives as a visual response to this debilitating modern mentality. We delve into the nuances of the human drive, and the opposing forces to an inactive contemporary attitude. Nah F*ck It in essence explores what it is that motivates us to get out of bed in the morning.
The exhibition will run from the 11th to 25th of August at the Budd St Gallery (Wednesday - Sunday 12pm - 6pm).
Opening night will be held on Saturday the 11th of August from 6pm until late, with a bar provided.
This is my favourite wearable art brooch at the moment. She is coming with me to Bali. The stones attached to the copper wire are Santa Fe turquoise. Turquoise is the travellers protector and links to Archangel Michael. She will travel with me on this exciting adventure. I’ve been to Bali but not to Lombok or the Gillie Islands. I will post my drawings along the way and scatter the posts with unique wearable art brooches that will either be available at the National Brooch show in August at FITZROY Library or exhibited as part of my solo show in September at Space2bArtspace. All pieces for sale (except this one😊). Funny how we have our favourites and there is always the letting go process in art making.
Upcoming group show with these talented ladies!! Opening Thursday 31st of May, 6pm at In.cube8r Gallery. ALL of my oil portraits (including new ones) will be showing so come and see them!! Prints and stickers will also be available. If you can't make it to the opening, the show will be running until the 12th of June 🌞✨

Not long now until opening night of the Bluethumb Art Prize 18! This is one of our finalists, Shine Opposite by Renata Waterfall: “The gem here is symbolic of the human spirit - a gem is a natural and rare substance, which when cut and polished by an outside force creates something of beauty that absorbs and exudes maximum light. The background is a colourless and broken paradigm." See the link in bio to RSVP. #bluethumbartprize18
“A la cARTe”
A showcase of the unique and diverse creative flavours of the artists from QArt Studio.
Held on Friday, March 2nd at QArt Gallery.
6pm - 9pm.
We can’t wait to see you there!
We are extremely excited to announce that in November, @collinsplace will host
"A Week in the life of The Melbourne Map". This is a unique and once in a lifetime opportunity to see The Melbourne Map illustration 'work in progress' and meet the makers.
We will transport the original artwork from our tiny studio, to a "pop-up" shop at 45 Collins Street. Find us right near @sofitelmelbourneoncollins and next to Giorgio Armani, at the entrance to beautiful Collins Place Plaza.
For seven days (13 to 19 November) from 10am to 6pm @lewis.brownlie will continue illustrating, and you'll be able to view the detail and work involved with The Melbourne Map project.
For the first time ever the original artwork of the 1990 Melbourne Map by artist Deborah Young will also be on display.
Bring the kids, we'll have some 1990 Black & White posters on the easel, for them to colour (grown up colourists also welcome!)
We look forward to meeting our supporters and sharing the mapping process.
Huge thanks to our Exhibition partners, @collinsplace and @sofitelmelbourneoncollins who are helping to bring The Melbourne Map to the CBD. #map#themelbournemap#illustratedmap#melbourneart#mapart#citymap#worldsmostliveablecity#ilovemelbourne#melbourne#destinationmelbourne#visitmelbourne#melbourneiloveyou#sofitel#collinsplace#artexhibitionmelbourne#artexhibition
