Art innovator Manyung Gallery Group is set to get your aesthetics juices flowing once again with the launch of its new exhibition, simply entitled New Art, at its Mount Eliza site. Always at the forefront of the art scene, Manyung Gallery Group prides itself on delivering a wide range of contemporary artistic expression both locally and on the international stage.
This not-to be-missed show running from September 7-22 is dedicated to exposing endlessly creative artworks that spring from the heart while transforming space and initiating conversation. Created by ground-breaking expression initiators, the New Art exhibition includes work from Canberra-based artist Liz Coats, who has been featured in a solo retrospective at the Drill Hall Gallery, ANU and Abstraction – Celebrating Australian Women Abstract Artists at the National Gallery of Australia travelling to Geelong, Newcastle, Cairns and QT art galleries, among others. Minimalist painter Mark Cairns utilises the barest of colours and line to represent the infinite connection between sea and sky and how the interruption of man-made elements can distort, while works by Melissa Hartley, Brigit Heller, Melitta Perry, Michelle Seelig, Phil Stallard and several others will thrill and entice.
Manyung Gallery Group is currently celebrating 50 years of bringing art to the people and is looking forward to continuing to provide a diverse range of inspirational works for viewing for the next 50 years. It is constantly searching for innovative and highly skilled artists to represent its vision of showcasing unique art that makes a statement. It is also one of only a handful of galleries in Australia to have reached its 50th year in the art business.
