Drawing Fine

installation view 

WED 1  - SAT 18 APRIL 2015 

OFFICIAL OPENING: Wednesday 1 April, 5-7pm 

Drawing is fundamental to an artist's development and is often used as a means to progress onto final piece of work.  However, in this exhibition Drawing is the subject matter.  The nine (9) artists involved in this exhibition are all coming from different backgrounds and their drawings are as distinctive and intriguing as their individual art practices.  This is sure to be an exciting 3rd exhibition at Gallery 139.

Artists exhibiting are: Ben Kenning, Caelli-Jo Brooker, Damien Slevin, Judy Henry, John Moroney, Olivia Parsonage, Peter Lankas, Peter Read and Toni Amidy.

Drawing Fine is a gallery curated exhibition.

ART: Be prepared to be floored

By JILL STOWELL | April 10, 2015, 10 p.m

- MY first visit to Gallery 139 was to see the third group exhibition, on view until April 18 at the gallery space opened in January by Ahn Wells in Beaumont Street opposite Nanshe.

Wide contacts in the Newcastle art scene and the success of her previous shows ensure that present drawings come from a well-known and eclectic selection of artists.

Some, like Ben Kenning, are instantly familiar. Peter Read's brooding enigmas are always striking. Judy Henry captures exotic landscape with a wiry line. Peter Lankas' brush portraits suggest a casual nonchalance. Olivia Parsonage is a natural illustrator. Caelli Jo Brooker has a new lightness of touch.
