The Nexus Gallery has two exhibitions between 23 July and 18 August:
Mayapur Reflections Art Exhibition - Studio Gallery
Bellingen Artist Teresa Cristina Carapeto has compiled a group of works in various mediums for the Mayapur Reflections Exhibition: these include acrylic on canvas, oil on canvas and a photographic journal. Teresa’s recent travels abroad have taken her to Mayapur in West Bengal, India. In Mayapur, the artist explored a sense of ‘place’ and reflected on her experiences through visual imagery and poetry.
The creation of the photographic journal is a result of Teresa’s exploration in self-reflectivity in the context of her research for an Honours Thesis surrounding Indian Medieval History. Goan influences have resulted in the creation of the blessed Mother Mary collection. Here Mary is portrayed as the beautiful feminine – an imagery of purity, innocence and protection. Namaste.
The Shifting Viewpoint - Main Gallery
Chris Campbell has lived on the mid north coast for many years observing and painting the landscape. I am interested in the ways in which we see the world from different vantage points and like to include a variety of perspectival aspects of a landscape in a single picture.
My ceramic sculptures are inspired by the characters who live locally and the holiday makers who visit the area. A festive, cheery feeling is evoked with the use of brightly coloured glazes.
Venue: Nexus Gallery
