Winsome Jobling

01 April - 30 April 2022

 

Winsome Jobling has 40 years’ experience turning natural fibres into fabulous two and three-dimensional art. She has exhibited nationally including a retrospective exhibition at the Northern Territory Museum in 2016 and regular solo exhibitions at Nomad Art Gallery.

 

Winsome recently conducted a paper making workshop at Nomad Art Studio in Avenel. During the workshop people learnt how to choose suitable plant fibres, how to process them and form sheets of paper with a mould and deckle. They then expanded upon that skill turning the paper pulp into patterns and imagery through the paper making process. The outcome of the workshop was a series of unique and beautiful papers incorporating designs, stencils and water marks.

Focus on Basil Hall Editions

01 March - 31 March 2022

 

Basil Hall has been working with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists since 1983. For 16 years, he was based in Darwin where he and a group of experienced printmakers made prints with many hundreds of artists from over 55 Art Centres in Central Australia, Arnhem Land, the Tiwi Islands and the Kimberley area of Western Australia and southeast Asia.

 

In 2001 he established Basil Hall Editions (BHE), which has since initiated some of the most exciting art projects carried out in remote communities throughout Australia.

 

BHE is a centre of printmaking excellence, providing expert assistance to artists who wish to collaborate in the making of etchings, silkscreen prints, relief prints and collagraphs. Basil is now based in Canberra, where he has a print studio and workshop.

 

Basil Hall has worked closely with Nomad Art since 2005,
collaborating on numerous projects including:

 

Yalangbara Suite

Replant: A new Generation of Botanical art

Custodians: Country and Culture

Djalkiri: we are standing on their names – Blue Mud Bay

Nomad Art – crossing borders

01 February - 31 January 2022

 

Nomad art is now open at its new home in Avenel, Victoria. This year we will offer a program of practical art workshops, exhibitions and lectures at the new art complex. For information click here.

 

To celebrate reopening we are featuring watercolours and etchings by Anne McMaster and Jörg Schmeisser (dec).

 

Jörg Schmeisser

Jörg Schmeisser was born in Germany in 1942 and lived in Australia from 1978 when he was appointed Head of Printmaking and Drawing at Canberra School of Art at the Australian National University. Schmeisser’s distinguished printmaking career was informed by a restless curiosity about the perception and essence of the visual world. From the beginning, Schmeisser was inspired by travel, his imagination fired by regular experiences of the unfamiliar and unknown.

 

His love of travel took him to Israel, Thailand, Japan, China, USA, Europe, India and Antartica. He participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. His work is a visual travelog of his wondrous life journey in prints.

Anne McMaster

Anne is a contemporary visual artist based in Darwin, Australia. Her explorations with printmaking and watercolour mediums have led her to investigate the coastal aesthetics of coastal mangroves, coral, tide lines and sea faring objects.  Through the characteristics of using these materials and techniques Anne has incorporated the louvered window shapes found in tropical architecture to format her mark making and imagery.

 

Her recent research explored the notion of Drift, the motion of moving on the sea, movements in time, and elements of tidal flow. Anne uses the salty sea washes over etching plates and in her water colours representing the rhythmic tidal flows that occur daily, and is part of the natural coastal world.
