Summer Exhibition
Andrew Carter
Opening 7 January 2012
Works also available for purchase online

Andrew Carter has been practicing as an artist for around 30 years. Initially based in Fremantle, the city became his focus as he was inspired by the architecture, culture and essence of what surrounded him. Now living in Denmark in the South West of WA, Andrew finds himself similarly captured by his surrounds.

“Finding Roots” is his first attempt at finding some expression in a place that has been a home for his ancestors and now a home for himself. His paintings allow you to see glimpses of the history of the South West region, including the area’s significance in the whaling industry, the link with the war, the isolation of living and working in rural areas, and the logging industry. Andrew’s large-scale canvases capture the movement and layers of this history in a poetic way. They give the viewer a hint of what is there but make people take a second look or make them take some extra time to work out what it is that they are looking at.

Exhibition runs from 7 – 17 January 2012
Open Daily 10 – 5pm

New Artist: Nathan Day

Nathan Day is a bespoke furniture maker who completed his apprenticeship in 2002. Nathan then travelled to the UK and met world famous furniture designer John Makepeace. John's furniture was inspirational both in terms of design and the quality of craftsmanship. In 2006 Nathan became the first Australian to be trained at England’s premier furniture training workshop, The Edward Barnsley workshop. In 2007 he began work on his own designs, resulting in numerous exhibitions and accolades. In 2010 he set up his studio & workshop with a series of new commissions.

Nathan’s design style is somewhat minimal in its approach, avoiding applied decoration in favor of elegant, functional forms. His skills as a maker allow him and his clients virtually unlimited design freedom. The elements of design and craftsmanship in Nathan’s work are both very deliberate in their intention. To result in pieces of a world-class quality, that bring warmth and enjoyment to peoples lives and will be passed on as family heirlooms for many years to come.  

Feature Artist: Marcia Hadlow

Marcia Hadlow has lived and travelled both overseas and interstate. She now resides and paints in and around Fremantle, often to be seen around the port city with sketch-book in hand. Marcia is a graduate of the Claremont School of Art, where she studied in the early 90s.  She was a founding member of a studio with six other artists and together with them she has held an exhibition annually since 1994.  She has had two solo shows since then. Primarily a colourist, Marcia has a painterly approach, whether working with oil paint, or sewing and stitching textiles. Colour is an intrinsic part of her life and has been since an early age.



Feature Artist: John Lacey  

John Lacey has been painting professionally since 2004, during which time he has won numerous art prizes and painted in a variety of medium. Born in South Australia in 1947 John’s experience began in his school years and was rekindled in the early eighties by a number of South Australian water colourists. It was the softness of colour, light and atmosphere they created that captured his imagination. Then in the mid-nineties John began trying different mediums. This led to painting colourful landscapes in acrylic. John enjoys painting outdoors and usually uses these plein air studies for larger studio work. John Lacey’s latest oil paintings feature landscapes from the north-west of Western Australia.
