DIVERSE palettes and visions grace the walls of Nanshe Gallery, helping to celebrate the first birthday of this superb art space.
A collection of local artists, some having had successful solo shows with the gallery, boast cool images bouncing with vibrant energy.
A generous proclivity towards the absurd and strange stings with dynamic intent.
Wafty and beady-eyed, a triumphant form is off the leash in Sheree Fleming's painted canvas.
Her sharp observation and witty gibes scoff at the notion of tradition.
A kaleidoscope of pretty paint dazzles successfully as Jill Orr works up an old favourite, the floral still life.
Liberally applied oils build strong form and space, subsequently revealing a buttery appeal akin to heavily iced baked goods.
The robust community of artists nurtured by the lively atmosphere of Newcastle's art hub is expressed in this gathering.
Nanshe Gallery, at 148b Beaumont St, Hamilton is open Wednesday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 3pm.
The Birthday Show runs until June 23.
