IN THE COMMUNITY GALLERY
COMING ON 4th AUGUST
LOCKDOWN / LOOK UP
Lockdown/ Look Up embraces where our recent work came from and it celebrates the emergence of our art. During the pandemic there was uncertainty and fear. For some, this experience changed us as artists and as people. Our working methods changed and our thought processes changed.
But even in the dark days, we could take heart as nature blossomed. As humans retreated, as industry and travel diminished, skies were cleaner, waters were cleaner. Animals and birds emerged even onto city streets. A sense of wonder enlivened our souls.
As we move towards a new normal, our experiences have highlighted what we want to continue doing, being, thinking and saying, into the future.
PARAMETER Splinter Contemporary Artists: 4 FEB- 16 APRIL Feb

TIME AND SPACE 2020
ROARS AND WHISPERS
A group exhibition by Splinter Contemporary Artists
Nov 6th till Feb 5th 2018
By definition, our art is a dynamic combination of materials and methods, with endless possibilities of concepts and subjects, many of which challenge traditional boundaries and often defy simple explanation.
Paradoxically, having endless options to choose from can in itself be overwhelming and actually stifle creativity. Therefore by setting parameters for ourselves we can start thinking creatively without getting lost in the wilderness of possibilities.
To that end, Splinter exhibitions follow a brief which is designed to awaken surges of creative juices in some whilst leaving other members uncomfortable and challenged.
This exhibition, whilst simple in concept is no exception.
ART SQUARED: produce a 2D or 3D piece confined within a square boundary of 60cms x 60cms
Mixed media artist and curator of Art Squared, Amanda Hocking commented “Personally I strongly dislike working inside a square. Both physically and metaphorically! However, feeling uncomfortable is the sign that you are pushing boundaries and that is what contemporary artists do.”
Splinter Artists invite you to enjoy this latest and diverse exhibition.
Kyabram Town Hall, 199 Allan Street, Kyabram
10am – 4pm Mon – Sat.
