The second of Phil Day's two one-person shows at The Left Hand. Phil is a versatile, inventive artist whose observational drawing is matched by his simplifying, imaginative inventiveness. This show included new oil paintings and drawings centred around his Melbourne home and the view beyond it.
Making the Cut
An exhibition of linocut and woodcut prints including Linda Dening, Antonia Aitken, Bernard Hardy, Shellaine Godbold, Peter McLean, John Pratt, Sam Kidd, Phil Day, Kate Stevens, Julian Laffan, Cecile Galiazzo, Robin Wallace-Crabbe and Linda Douglas.
Robin Wallace-Crabbe has been making pictures for over half a century, and is one of Australia's most consistently evolving and visually inventive artists. He has shown in a number of Left Hand exhibitions. This show included new charcoal and oil pastel drawings, etchings, linocut prints, and paintings.
An exhibition of the work of eight photographers. Virginia Wallace-Crabbe, Frank Lindner, Kelly Sturgiss, Genevieve Swifte, Anders Nielsen, Cecile Galiazzo, Donna Gibbons and Stephen Best.
This show combined three potters with very different approaches - Anne Langridge's large textured garden pots; Lisa Maddern's delicate hand-built pieces; and Julian Davies' finely made platters and bowls.
A show combining Linda Dening's romantic mixed media works and charcoal drawings; Cecile Galiazzo's free-floating monoprints; and Julian Laffan's inventive inked woodblocks.
