Mid-century modern (MCM) describes a design movement from approximately 1945 to 1975, in interiors, architecture and object design. The MCM exhibition at Saint Cloche in Sydney celebrates the clean, architectural lines of the movement-of-the-moment.
Fluid forms, rippling textures, vibrant palettes and geometric shapes define the eclectic range of works by the 10 artists featured in our group show Brasília. The show, curated by Kitty Wong, was inspired by the vibrancy of Brazilian culture and the rich aesthetics one associates with the architectural structures and natural forms that make up the incredibly diverse landscape of Brasília.
We loved seeing the gallery space come to life with the sounds of people enjoying food and drink, engaging in animated conversation and sharing stories whilst celebrating the work of the finalists of the Little Things Art Prize, whose inspiring work was the perfect backdrop to our Spring Feast.
There was a true sense of community as family and friends of participants, art aficionado’s and locals from the area gathered at the gallery to view the impressive variety of works by the Little Things art prize finalists.
Creative Zen - two of the elements that were the focus of our first Ikebana workshop. The workshop saw our space converted into a glasshouse filled with native Australian fauna flowed from the vases as well as a mix of colourful exotic species. Bright colours, varying textures and differing sizes of the flowers provided great inspiration and creative potential.
This July, we will be hosting two Ikebana workshops run by Setsuko Yanagisawa from Yuga Flora during the exhibition Made/Arranged. The exhibition explores the way in which Minimalism and the Zen aesthetic share both conceptual and artistic values that are clearly translated into the art form of Ikebana.
