Gallery 127 – In Search Of The Light

August 4, 2023 @ 11:00 am - August 28, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

Gallery 127 is housed in the historic Avoca Railway Station which was lovingly restored and open to the public in 2017. The Community Arts and Gardens group had the idea to establish a dynamic and inclusive contemporary art space in the historic building which was first built in 1876. From the 12th August, you will find a special exhibition by Liadaan – Painter, sculpter and poet.

About Liadaan:

I use the nom de plume of Liadaan for my artistic work. I have drawn and painted all my life and was encouraged by and took lessons from my beloved artist father Harry Thomas who was a past student
of Archibald Colquhoun. [Meldrum School]. FURTHER STUDIES Because of my love of chiaroscuro I studied with various teachers from the tonal school in Melbourne. {Grahame Moore, Don James, Patricia
Moran] I took several study trips to Europe and India as well as the U.S. I majored in sculpture with a credit at the Ballarat University, School of Mines in 1999 and completed a clay sculpture workshop
with Debra Fritts in New Mexico, U.S. IN 2015 MEDIA AND ACTIVITIES My main media is oil, however I also enjoy pastels, gouache and drawing media. My plein air work is a regular activity and I
draw and paint from the model. I consider myself a contemplative painter and I work in the tonal method. The light, atmosphere, mood and poetry of the subject is what I aim for. I favour late afternoon, misty and
crepuscular subjects in my landscapes and contemplative poses in my figure paintings. Flowers and fruit are well loved still life subjects. My sculptures are ceramic, mixed media and bronze and always
concentrate on the feminine. I have work in private and public collections in Australia and Europe.

Gallery 127 is Open Friday to Monday, 11am to 4pm.

The official exhibition opening will be held Saturday 12th August at 2pm
