PETER FERGUSON + JUDI SINGLETON: Geometree • Until 15 April



The title of Peter Ferguson and Judi Singleton’s current exhibition Geometree at Metropolis Gallery Is derived from the coloured geometric shapes that appear in Peter’s prints and paintings, alongside the landscape of trees forming the basis of Judi's new work: the tree as a symbol of life, growth and health.

Peter and Judi were two of the founding members of the important Roar Studios in 1982, with a distinctive, expressive naive style combining a riot of childlike human figures, birds, trees and buildings. The appeal of their work is reflected in the many successful exhibitions held at Roar Studios and major Australian galleries since then. Both artists are represented in many private and public Australian collections.

Judi’s work can be found at the National Gallery of Australia; Artbank and Parliament House and Peter’s work is represented in the National Gallery of Australia; Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Sir William Dobell Foundation Sydney.

Sisca Verwoert: New Visions

20 APRIL - 13 MAY

Sisca Verwoert’s upcoming exhibition New Visions brings together elements of the Otway Ranges and her own garden, with a heightened colour palette and abstraction of landmass, vegetation, and ocean. Inspired by the extraordinary summer display in her Otway garden, Sisca’s recent paintings have grown in size and complexity with marine and bird life also beginning to emerge.


Geelong Picture Framers @ Metropolis!

Geelong Picture Framers is a busy custom-framing workshop located upstairs at Metropolis Gallery. We specialise in the conservation framing of paintings and works on paper, sentimental family treasures and memorabilia. We stretch canvases and also frame everything from posters and paintings to football jumpers and other 3D objects..

We’ll help select a frame that not only enhances the work: it’s important that the frame, matt, backing board and glass help to preserve it for many years to come.

Geelong Picture Framers turn your pictures into art!
