Join us for the opening of Hendrik Kolenberg’s exhibition ‘Urban/Industrial’

Since he was an art student in the 1960s, Hendrik Kolenberg has been a wayfarer of the back streets, construction sites and working harbours of Sydney, and other cities including Rotterdam—the Dutch city of his birth. His paintings don’t depict sentimental or pretty subjects, rather they convey his fascination with the overlooked, discarded or functional aspects of the city.

Bringing together paintings, drawings and graphics from the last twenty two years, Urban/Industrial opens up an intriguing space between real-world observations and minimal compositions.

6pm on Friday 29 July 2022

Exhibition dates: 30 July to 25 September 2022

Exhibition Opening- Steve Lopes and Derek Whitehead

By No Comments

Please join us for the opening of Steve Lopes Encountered and Derek Whitehead: Figuring the Human

 

To be opened by Euan Macleod on Friday 20th May at 6pm

Join exhibition curator Kon Gouriotis OAM in conversation with Steve Lopes in the Gallery Theatre at 5:30pm prior to the opening. Book your free ticket to the talk HERE.

Steve Lopes Encountered

21 May – 17 July 2022

A survey exhibition of works from 1997 to 2021, including rarely seen drawings, prints and collages, together with the artist’s diaries and drawing books.

Lopes is a Sydney-based painter with a studio in Millthorpe. He is known for his figurative landscapes and often works en plein air, painting vignettes of places that are then used as references for large-scale studio works.

Curated by Kon Gouriotis, the exhibition considers how the artist reflects on our age of complexity, volatility and crisis through thematic narratives of migration and place, the body on the land and the land without the body. Voids, barriers and passages that appear and reappear play an important role in Lopes’ work and provide insights into his philosophy.

An Orange Regional Gallery and S.H. Ervin Gallery partnership exhibition curated by Kon Gouriotis OAM.

Derek Whitehead: Figuring the Human

30 April – 12 June 2022

This selection of works from over twenty-five years of creative practice is a series of meditations on the human form, drawn from observation and imagination.

Derek Whitehead’s work moves between the representational and the abstract and is governed by personal feeling or inclination. He tends to work spontaneously, striving to reach a stage where knowledge and artistic training leave off, making way for deeper processes to come through. In this sense his works are intuitive visualizations.
