The Shop Gallery is delighted to announce Light and Shade, an exhibition of prints by printmakers from the Southern Printmakers Association.
The title pays tribute to the technical and metaphorical expression of light and shade. The contribution of light and shade to our visual and interior world. Chiaroscuro (the use of light and shade to give dimension and form, to create drama and to create balance) and notan meaning dark-light harmony, are richly expressed in some works while others adopt a playful interpretation of the theme.
The exhibition includes the work of: Vivian Berney, Jan Callus, Rosalie Duligal, Christine Druitt-Preston, Julie Holohan, Kathy Hoyt, Don Kibble, Nicole Lowe, Georgia Lambropoulos, Sharon Langhans, Dior Mahnken, Vivian Messimeris, Sol Pandiella-McLeod, Kim Whitbread, Laura Stark, Max Samways and Julianne Smart.
Created works cover the variety of printmaking techniques: linocut, etching, silkscreen, collograph, waterless lithography and photoplymer.
The Southern Printmakers Association was founded in 1978 to provide a way for local printmakers to meet, exchange views, increase their knowledge of specialist techniques and arrange exhibition of their works. Members have exhibited across Sydney, as well as nationally and internationally. The Association has a strong connection with the Hazelhurst Arts Centre in the southern Sydney suburb of Gymea.
