 The new show at the gallery is the work of Sylvia Dardha and her playgroup Buddha hands. The show is called trust the child and is a mixture of sylvias work and that of the kids at the playgroup with some help from the other mothers.The official opening is this Sunday October the 8th .All invited at 2.00 for nibbles and drinks.Here is the video for Keltie and Nicoles exhibitionKeltie and Nicoles video for Unequvocally X and Intertwined

The show following Is Lynne Bickhoff       This Time, This Place

Presenting works by Gippsland Artist, Lynne Bickhoff, this exhibition was curated to reflect on the artists sense of place and where she currently sits in her art practice. With an intense interest in the natural world, the artists sensibilities are informed and subsequent emotions and responses have emerged, allowing her to create works which reflect these responses. The works have an almost abstract nature to them and create an atmosphere in which the viewer is invited to engage their own responses, both to the artwork and the landscape or aspects of nature represented. The subsequent connection between viewer and artwork is one which is highly valued by the artist.

You’re cordially invited to the opening of this new exhibition at the Red Tree Gallery, Jindivick on Saturday 3 November at 3pm.

Maree Wallace who normally writes a whats on around the area has had a bad fall so she cant do that for a while.. I will add things as I know them but it is quite a job to be comprehensive.

  My work has been seen and sold throughout Australia and internationally, and most people know that each piece is unique and quite popular. ;  The distinctive "Laurie Collins" styling is reflected throughout the vast range of artwork I produce, from painting to drawing and my core junk sculpture work.

 I am active in the local community and I support the many art shows and community events within Gippsland and surrounding regions.  Jindivick is where I live and it is a beautiful setting in which to work and you can do worse than come and visit as there are lots of  local artists and other local attractions. Have a look at the "local events and artists" by clicking on the local attractions link provided.


 Having taught for 30 years I am now a full-time artist, Have a look at the blog to get an idea of what I am doing more or less day by day.
