An exhibition celebrating the colours of life in cold places was officially opened at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery this weekend.
The exhibition features the works of artist Anna Wilson and ceramicists Belinda Michael and Jason Luca.
Anna Wilson is a photographer, illustrator and designer. Anna first fell in love with the cold when she watched a city freeze.
She has spent much of her life since chasing the frozen world. Her photographs, taken in sub-zero temperatures in Mongolia, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand and Europe all celebrate her loved of the colour of cold.
Ceramicists Belinda Michael and Jason Luca produce a dramatic body of work around the theme ‘Cold’.
The vessels are wheel thrown or slumped and turned then decorated by carving and scratching into the outer layer of colour, revealing the brisk white clay body beneath. Japanese inspired patterns of flowers, wind and waves are represented and a steel blue/grey palette has been used to express a feeling of coolness and freshness.
Both Belinda and Jason teach pottery classes in Talbot.
The exhibition runs until 25 March, 2018.
Central Goldfields Art Gallery is located at the Old Fire Station, Neill Street, Maryborough and is open Thursday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
