Goulburn Regional Art Gallery continues its commitment to exhibiting local and regional artists' work.  Goulburn Regional Art Gallery provides professional development opportunities for artists living in the Southern Tablelands, Canberra region and the Southern Highlands (an approx 120km radius of Goulburn) but supporting the creation of new work and raising the profile of artists in the region, as well as providing stimulating floortalks, masterclasses, workshops and artists' talks throughout the year.

In 2012 Goulburn Regional Art Gallery introduced Snapshot - a Local Artist Space in the Gallery Foyer space.  Artists from the local region are invited to submit a proposal to exhibit one large work or several smaller works in the foyer area and give an artist talk or demonstration based on their art practice.  Exhibitions run for a period of one month and are subject to an application process.

Some of the artists who have exhibited here in the past two years have gone on to be part of larger main gallery exhibitions.

LYNNE FLEMONS - DRAWING AND PAINTINGS FROM FOWLER'S GAP -  SNAPSHOT EXHIBITION

29 June - 19 August2018

Artist Statement:

For the month of May 2018, two other artists and Flemons were living at the UNSW Fowler's Gap Arid Zone Research Station, 39,000 hectare property located 112kms north of Broken Hill.

It hasn't rained at Fowlers Gap since 2016 and the salt bushes in the rocky landscape have been gnawed down by goats and sheep.  River red gums survive in the dry creek that runs in front of the Green House where Flemons was staying and the passing traffic consisted of kangaroos, echnidas, sheep, goats, galahs, willy wagtails, parrots and a frog which lived in the toilet.  He appeared at the beginning of the full moon and reappeared on the last nights of the stay with the return of the moon.

Despite the drought and harshness and the degradation of the land there is a beauty at Fowler's Gap that attracts artists from around the world.  The play of light across the hills and plains and the creek throughout the day from sunrise to sunset offers a constantly changing plethora of colours, some of which are impossible to describe in words.

The work exhibited here is a selection of the watercolours, drawings and acrylic paintings the artist completed en plein air at various locations around the station at different times of the day.  The acrylic paintings on board were textured with modelling compound and the red dust and other detritus found where Flemons was working.

Lynne Flemons is an established artist who has completed numerous commissions and residencies in Australia and internationally.  Her work is featured on a series of energy boxes in Goulburn's CBD as part of the Gallery's public art initiative.
