“ Art Day at Barb’s – Mountain Coolibah” by Megan McNicholl

“Woodgate Beach” by Jane Bridle

 

Exhibition Statement: A WOW Moment!

Come and see what happens when artists from the Glenmorgan Art Group (GAG) join forces with artists from the Toowoomba Art Group (TAG) and put together an exhibition of their recent work.

The Exhibition is a stunning collection of works with subjects ranging from Downs landscapes to some beautiful and colourful interiors and everything in between. It gives the viewer an idea of the wonderful and diverse work artists from both the GAG and TAG are doing at present.

GAG celebrated its milestone fiftieth anniversary in 2020 – a great achievement. The founding artists saw a need for an art group in the Glenmorgan area. They were desperate for communication with kindred spirits, so in 1970 a small group of artists began meeting for monthly art days around the district. The GAG group is still going strong with 14 active members.

Some of the GAG members have retired to Toowoomba and formed the TAG along with other keen artists and they continue to paint enthusiastically at monthly art days.

Exhibiting artists are:

Elaine Lyons, Carol McCormack, Megan McNicholl, Priscilla Mundell, Mary Penfold, Cassie Swanson, Shiree Wenham, Jane Bridle, Cindy Grimes, Paige Devenish, Barbara Hancock, Patricia Hinz and Diane Hill.

You are warmly invited to the opening of GAG+TAG+WOW!! at the Roma on Bungil Gallery at 1pm on Sunday 1 October for sandwiches and drinks. The exhibition will be showing until 11 November.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I grew up in Surat and moved to the Sunshine Coast 15 yrs ago. I have 2 beautiful children, Lachlan 26 and Ellie 20. 

I can say now I was always interested in creativity of some kind,  either painting, drawing, photography, crafts or cooking. But it wasn’t until I picked up a paint brush and painted my first piece 26 yrs ago when my son was a baby that I thought I was actually artistic. I entered that piece into Easter in the Country and won.  

Becoming involved in setting up the Balonne River Gallery in Surat encouraged me to actively paint for my first exhibition  “A Touch of Red”.   Around the same time I set up a small coffee shop called Vogue House, displayed my art here; owned it for 3yrs, sold it and became a nurse. I still work as a nurse,  although now in a busy emergency department on the Sunshine Coast. Somewhere along the way I became dissatisfied with how we deliver western medicine, treating the wound and not the person. Although it has its place in this big wide world,  I felt like there was more and I soon discovered Art Therapy. I studied to become a Therapist, hosted a retreat in Bali and then covid happened. So I participated in yoga teacher training, specialising more in the therapy side of yoga; and I painted Pieces of Me! This pivotal piece for me triggered the exhibition.  Although I had painted a few pieces prior, these works stemmed more from my studies. You don’t study psychology and not have your past unresolved conflicts not come back to haunt you.  And Art Therapy is just about that, when words fail us, we do art right!

My works explore the emotional aspects of ourselves and those relationships we encounter throughout life.  I  believe we leave little pieces of ourselves within every meaningful place and person we meet. 

I’ve used acrylics as the main medium for each piece, some I’ve incorporated pastels, pencil or charcoal. All works are on canvas.  Each piece came to me as a vision, one that I always sketched down quickly. Rarely did they end up exactly how I thought; challenging me in the most profound way that is difficult to articulate here. I’d like to thank my daughter Ellie for being my little curator, I didn’t always listen to her, but she challenged me in ways she’ll never know and thus inadvertently helped me finalise each and every piece. 

I don’t have any formal art training, so I don’t follow any rules. I paint what I feel, from the heart. This exhibition is different to others in that each piece is a story. I wanted to take the viewer on a journey, but not necessarily for them to be aware of my personal history. More so, I wanted to challenge them, to level up and ask themselves ‘can I relate to this in some way.’  I myself grew up in an era where crying or expressing emotions was weak and needy. And now that I’ve grown, I know that’s absolutely not true, but that’s a piece of me too.

About the Exhibition (Artists Statement)

This body of work began with a trip across Australia via the Tanami Desert and Kimberley region.

Experience and memory simmer away together over time, and the landscape – which pulses with life and mystery, whispering stories of vast country, and hinting at the answers to life’s big questions – became the inspiration for this body of work.

Employing a variety of layering techniques, scratched, stencilled and painted symbols, I’ve attempted to recreate the sensation of the things we sense, but cannot see, to capture the calm softness, which is unexpected in a harsh landscape, and to calm the confusion of life in general by blanketing it in the peace I find in nature.

The work in the exhibition explores the theme Fathomless from several angles: the vast distances of our country; the experiences we have for which there are no logical explanations; and the aspects of humanity we simply cannot understand – the things we find impossible to fathom.

My kids fondly tease me about being a weird hippie – and I’m okay with that.  Making art is the way I figure out the world. Experiences, emotions, and ideas that swirl around in my mind seem easier to make sense of with paint than with words.

A bit about the Artist

Tracey Hewitt is an artist, author, life coach and active partner in her family’s farming business.  

She regularly exhibits her contemporary abstract art and was a finalist in the Lethbridge Small Works prize in 2021. She teaches art journaling, is the author of When Your Superpower Becomes Your Kryptonite, and is currently working towards Wayfinder Life Coach Certification with Martha Beck Inc.  

Tracey spent the first 2 years of her life in Quilpie Qld, where her Mum endured 2 years of dust, flies and heat before declaring “No more”. Brisbane became home for her formative years, high school, and college. But the wide open spaces (and dust, flies and heat) must have seeped into her soul; and given that the love of her life owned a cattle property he wasn’t leaving, Tracey – gleefully abandoning an art teaching degree to marry her salt of the earth farmer – made her home in Central Queensland.

She now lives just out of Theodore where she and her husband raised 3 lively sons while Tracey fine-tuned a diverse range of interests and skills as she figured out what she wanted to be when she grew up. Ironically, the art teaching she was once anxious to flee from has become a source of delight and fulfillment.
