Briagolong-based printmaker Gillian Kline presents a series of reflections on contemporary life in her exhibition Print. While drawing predominately from observation, her finely crafted linocuts and etchings also use the imagination to create mood and atmosphere. Klineís exploration of the human condition is modulated by the light cast from different times of the day.
OPENING: Friday 5 April 6.00pm. To be opened by David Frazer, Artist.

On the Edge
30 March to 26 May 2013
Chris Stubbs blurs the line between art and activism in On the Edge. The Gippsland-based artist examines the precarious relationship between animals and humans, in a suite of new and recent sculptures. Stubbs forcibly confronts the troubling aspects of this longstanding relationship, through works that also reveal the artistís characteristic charm and humour.
OPENING: Friday 5 April 6.00pm
