The Memo, Healesville


Gillian and Ian are more interested in rhythm and form, than meaning, politics, or “a message”. With a shared fascination in typography, symbols, and glyphs, the artworks on display in ‘Textum’ are linked by a common thread of bold, grid-like ensembles of asemic text and a sharp, Minimalist colour palette.

The School House Group
Upper Yarra Arts Centre, Warburton


The School House Group are contemporary artists who have painted together for many years. They meet to make and discuss art at the beautiful old Schoolhouse at Badger Creek near Healesville.   Each person has their own individual style and method of applying paint and they appreciate each other’s comments and advice.    This exhibition reflects their diverse artwork that has emerged from a mutual passion to paint.
