Stuart Whitelaw & Gillian Wilde At Gallery Bodalla


Gallery Bodalla opens for the summer season with recent bodies of work by Stuart Whitelaw Breath of the Lotus, and Gillian Wilde Twinkle and Trust on Thursday 26 September and runs through to Sunday 27 October.

All are most welcome to opening drinks with Gillian and Stuart, Thursday evening 26 September at 6pm, with music by guitarist Geoffrey Potter.

In this show Gillian continues to explore the use of collage and watercolours in her quest to sensitively capture the personalities of birds. As she explores her passion for the natural world, Gillian seeks to catch fleeting yet instantly recognisable moments of delight. The tensions are underlined by the use of space, unusual angles and viewpoints, allowing the subject to flow beyond boundaries.

While Stuart’s body of work chronicles a year in the life of the lotus in the dam next to his studio, with outstanding pastels on canvas.

“I hope the works convey my sense of wonder of the many aspects of this life form (that sometimes seems other worldly). My title for the exhibition refers to the event that started this series, when I saw the lotus exhaling through a small pool of water collected on its leaf,” Stuart said.

Gallery Bodalla is open Thursday to Sunday 10.30am-4pm or by appointment ph. 0421238174 heritage post office, 66a Princes Hwy, Bodalla. www.gallerybodalla.com.au
