Dianne Mangan, Dolerite II (detail), 2014, acrylic on canvas, 115cm x 115cm
Mangan and Gorman come together in this joint exhibition to celebrate observations of landscape, environment and place. Through their semi-abstract painting styles, they draw from different environments in which they achieve their own a creative response. Presenting a combination of two dimensional media including works on canvas and paper, these two significant and nationally successful North East Victorian artists will not disappoint.

Friday, October 14 to Saturday, December 10
Rod McNicol’s photographic practice has always concentrated on portraiture as a genre that highlights mortality. For more than three decades, McNicol has been inviting people from his inner-city community to put their lives on pause for a few moments and stare into the lens of his camera.
The portraits that McNicol has captured in the stillness of his studio are both tender and brazen, they are faces that function as witnesses to the inescapable passing of time. This exhibition surveys McNicol’s extended portrait project, from his early black-and-white prints through to his most recent colour portraits.
