He has participated in over 56 exhibitions over this period including 31 solo, and has been a regular contributor to Australian and International Artist Magazines.  Artist Statement "I have been painting Sydney harbour and surrounds for over 30 years, and it never ceases to inspire. From the impact on the grand scale to the hidden spaces buried in small inlets and coves, every turn provides another opportunity. The boats are the main drawcard, sitting deep in the dark waters or dancing on the surface, colours, shapes, movement and every sense affected by their presence and action. Every shape and size, 50,000 tons to that you can pick up with one hand. Those that sail, and steam, wallow and glide, all blending and bending in the environment at hand, and creating the heart of activity in the valleys, bays and open expanses of water." Works are currently held in numerous private and corporate collections in Australia, The United States of America and Canada following exhibitions held in these locations over the past 19 years. Further commissions have resulted from these exhibitions.  Substantial bodies of works have been completed on locations in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and Italy, and featured in exhibitions in Australia and overseas. A particular focus on Cornwall with its dramatic and soulful coastline, Northern Scotland amongst the mountains and loch's, Amsterdam with its magnificent waterways and watercraft, beautiful Tuscany and of course Venice have featured in these exhibitions.  A series of works based on American institutions including the Whitehouse, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson memorial, the Washington Monument are currently hanging in major corporate institutions in Washington DC.  Australian Representation Works are currently held at  Cooks Hill Gallery - 67 Bull Street Newcastle Website: Red Hill Gallery - Musgrave Road, Brisbane Wentworth Art Galleries - Phillip Street, Sydney

My Art your Heart

Fred Bullen

Fred Bullen - 'My Art Your Heart' Mixed media. Works will be on display from July 19th to August 12th, Wednesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm or 10am to 1pm Sundays. You may find us open on a Monday and Tuesday too, but please call ahead to be certain. Fred is coming across from Tallwoods near Hallidays Point to exhibit here in Gloucester. Fred started painting nine years ago, creating traditional landscapes on canvas and then moved on to large format boards for abstract works, often with very heavily textured surfaces. His works cover a wide range of subjects and many have been created using unusual techniques and materials. Fred's inspiration comes from the local bush and beach which are then reproduced in one of many styles such as 'abstract realism', '3D' or in a more traditional style. He has won awards for his works which are currently displayed in galleries in Forster, Taree and Port Macquarie as well as local gift shops and cafes. Fred enjoys the challenge of painting a wide variety of subjects using an equally wide range of techniques, but his greatest pleasure comes from hearing that an artwork has unlocked a heartfelt memory for the viewer.

The exhibition is comprised of the final body of work by year 12 students. They select from a range of art forms when they initially set out to develop their body of work for their final practical examination. This can range from drawing, painting, printmaking, film, photography and sculptural works. The students have approximately 12 months to develop their concepts and produce the artworks that demonstrate their engagement with the idea as a coherent point of view and their understanding of the techniques associated with their chosen media. Bridghid Nolan - Three-dimensional painting - expressing the aspects of books and how they engage the observer/reader in their world.  Mia Bowden - painting, high relief sculpture, collage focuses on the Aboriginal Relationship with the land. Nina Samson - Sculpture - exploring the qualities and connection between the planets and biological structures.  Molly Danton - painting - Landscape painting exploring the soft emotive colours emanating from a personal connection with her inner and outer world.  Khya Papalia - Collection of works - painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage - the idea behind this body of work stems from the common hand gestures use in the everyday by individuals to express both a positive and negative response.  Emily Kerins - Collection of works - printmaking, collage, painting, drawing. WTF (Frog) focuses on the frog's natural habitat and how it has been impacted by humans and man-made objects. This year there will also be Life Skill students submitting some artworks for display.

Expressions of Interest

Kay McFarlane-Smith, Debra Ansell, Peter Erson-Smith,
Clare Felton, Gwendolin Lewis, Judith Hill

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST - SIX ARTISTS Kay McFarlane-Smith, Debra Ansell, Peter Erson-Smith, Clare Felton, Gwendolin Lewis, Judith Hill Opening on November 9th at 6.30pm with guest speaker Warren Goodrich. The works in this group exhibition have been influenced by the landscape in and around the Gloucester area. All six artists value the creative exercise of painting in the studio or en plein-air and in each other's company. Kay McFarlane-Smith imparts a beautiful authenticity to her oil paintings which are mostly painted en plein-air. Debra Ansell draws and paints in oil. Her consistent theme is pursuing the representation and the perpetuity of the landscape. Peter Erson-Smith's wooden horses are detailed and a perfect replica down to the saddle and horse's hair. Clare Felton looks to the landscape to catch the mood of a scene through layers of paint, often applied with a lot of medium, exploring texture within tonal variations of colour, usually in a limited palette. Gwendolin Lewis explores a free mark making in pastels and paint leading us through a bush track to a corner of the landscape, while exploring on the way the beauty of the trees and bush. Judith Hill's paintings in oils help the viewer to see the essence of the bush scene from a close encounter or the colour of the green throughout the landscape.
