Emerge yourself in the vibrant and colourful artwork from Nemingha-based artist Shannon Woodward this September and October at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery.
Shannon has been painting for more than 20 years and her 2018 collection of works ‘Siren Dance after Midnight’ boasts some of her most romanticised cubist styles, according to Gunnedah Shire Council’s Cultural Precinct Supervisor Lauren Mackley.
“The audience will be lingering in the juxtaposition of the motion of the shapes,” Ms Mackley said.
“Shannon’s work has the ability to push the conventions of positive and negative space through her brilliance of composition. The result is a mesmerising collection of work that will be both calming and complex.”
Shannon has previously exhibited throughout the local region and with a Fine Arts Diploma under her belt enjoys exploring new compositions of layers, movement, colour and tone.
“Whether you consider yourself an art expert or you appreciate beautiful things, the exhibition is bound to delight you. The portraits of the female form are simple and graceful, filled with multiple personalities; just like in real life,” Ms Mackley said.
The official opening of Shannon Woodward’s Exhibition ‘Siren Dance after Midnight’ is from 6.00pm on Friday, 7 September at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery, Chandos Street Gunnedah.
Drinks and light refreshments will be available. The exhibition continues until Friday 21 October, 2018.
