Studio 19 Gallery Anniversary Party and Exhibition

OH MY GOODNESS! YES – IT’S TRUE – OUR GALLERY HAS BEEN OPEN FOR ONE YEAR! (well one year and 2 months to be exact)

We are celebrating our wonderful gallery space’s anniversary in true Nina and Caz style with a big bash full of great art, live music and roving circus right here in the gallery.

We will have a two week exhibition full of some of the Illawarra’s most talented artist’s works (that the artists have generously donated to the studio) and we will be selling them via a silent auction throughout the week and at the opening night celebration party. So you have the opportunity to get a piece of art by a fabulous artist at the price you want to pay. We will also be raffling an amazing piece of sculpture by Anita Larkin!

If you were lucky enough to be at our grand opening you will remember what an incredible night it was – full of colour, vibrance and richness. There was brilliant art, roving circus performers and crowds of people pouring in and out all night. We plan on making the one year anniversary even better!

Jesse Wakenshaw exhibition

In the Hallway gallery at the Studio 19 Art Gallery in Exposure Arts and Media we have the wonderful Jesse Wakenshaw exhibiting a series of photos and some video.

About Jesse Wakenshaw:

Jesse Wakenshaw, mixed media visual artist from Sydney, Australia. Jesse creates unique artworks using mediums such as makeup artistry, fashion styling and photography. His original visions can be peceived as bizarre, morbid, and unconventional but they are captivatingly beautiful at the same time. Jesse’s work mimics fantasy, using strong vivid colour, referencing sexuality, embracing distorted religion and captuvating spirituality.

“I am creating a world of fantasy to escape mundane life. I want the viewer to feel and see what beauty is through my eyes which ultimately stems from my twisted mind. Each of my projects consists of references and themes from iconic, religious, political and cultural figures. I am influenced by pop culture, music and avant garde beauty, and those dreams and nightmares we all experience each and everyday. As an artist, I am free with no boundaries. I explore, I experiment and I develop… I make and break all of my own rules!” -Jesse Wakenshaw

No Drama, just Panorama exhibition by Deborah Moore

No drama, just panorama by Deborah Moore.

In the Shopfront Gallery

With Panorama’s taken from far and wide – from Beechworth Lunatic Asylum to the Port Kembla Stack – this is a great panorama photographic exhibition not to be missed!

“I like panorama photos because they make us all take a broader view of life and the images that are directly in front of us. The camera (Sony digital Cyber-shot, panorama sweep 14.1 megapixel) tags along with me to most destinations. This particular collection was taken in Beechworth, VIC (heavily featuring the Lunatic Asylum), Coolum QLD and local shots of Port Kembla, friends’ backyards and the Buddhist temple. When we stand in places such as the beach, we tend to scan the horizon and take a panoramic view across the landscape without a camera. Taking a photo of this is my way of allow the camera to formalise the experience.” – Deborah Moore.

Show runs from 21st – 31st August

Wendy King – THE INTRUDERS exhibition

The Intruders – WENDY KING

In the pop up shopfront Gallery

For eight years I have been using vintage and contemporary printed material to create collages. My work is inspired by myths, fantasy and adventure stories as well as the characteristics of my chosen medium – paper texture, print colours, graphic lines – of any type and quality. My training as a printmaker informs my practice.

The Intruders series explores word play, puns and irony. Images from 1970s comics and 1990s illustrations disrupt the serious tone associated with these ‘old masters’ paintings reproduced in art collector magazines from the 1950s and 1960s. Each work is inspired by the painting and the weird associations that happen in my head and make me laugh.

On show: 7th-17th August

Opening night: Friday 9 August, 6.30pm

Gallery hours tues, wed, fri: 10-4pm thurs: 12-6pm sat: 11-3pm
