Gallery 139’s latest exhibition, The Subject, offers a similar mix of portraits and figurative works with confident drawings by Christina Frogley and some strong portraits by well-known local artists Dino Consalvo and Lydia Miller along with Nick Ferguson who recently won the painting section of the Muswellbrook Art Prize. 

The fact that most of the sitters are friends of the artists adds a personal dimension to many of these works and a risk element that is often missing when celebrity is paramount and big prize money is at stake. Unfortunately, the dark, urban nocturnes by Damien Slevin are out of place in this exhibition and do not fit with the other works. Until 16th July.
