Primavera, "Spring", is a collaborative exhibition of work by Janice Ralph, Janet Cheetham (by painters) and Elisabeth Thilo (sculptor).
With Primavera, the exhibition is aimed at bringing hope, colour and new beginnings post pandemic.
Both Janice and Janet's art is about colour, the vibrancy and intensity and the emotions they evoke. Their landscapes are inspired by their travels, from the many moods and spirituality of the Australian outback, the intricate plays of light of the coastline and to as far away as the exotic markets of India.
With their travel wings clipped, other paintings included are from their more immediate surrounds but encapsulate the joy of colour, life and spring.
To complement their paintings, Elisabeth's sculptures are concentrated on her passion for nature, its beauty and humanity's impact on it.
Her work focuses on repurposing discarded materials, giving them 'a new life', much as Spring does to the world. The variety of materials she uses to convey nature's continuous movement include video tape, driftwood, found stones as well as the more traditional marble, alabaster, limestone and bronze.
