Jodi McConaghy - Oil Paintings at the Everglades Gallery

4 Mar 2017 to 26 Mar 2017
Jodi McConaghy is a master of colour. The gallery comes alive with her beautiful impasto oil paintings. Thick brushstrokes fill her canvases with a checkerboard of different palettes. When placed against the white wall, each painting becomes a kaleidoscope of colour. There’s a palette to address all who visits this extraordinary exhibition.

8 Apr 2017 to 30 Apr 2017
RESURRECT is a collaboration of printmaker JAN MELVILLE and photographic artist TRACY PONICH.

The artists’ subjects, materials and overall mood dovetail, as does the underlying notion of creating art that breathes life into things that are sometimes overlooked. RESURRECT evokes a sense of endurance and renewal of what is often dismissed as transitory, quickly passed by, or forgotten.
