CURRENT FEATURE EXHIBITION

DEBRA PATTERSON: Language of the heart

12 September - 7 October

 


Debra Patterson lived for many years in northeast Victoria surrounded by the beauty of mountains, lake and rivers but moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 2015 to rediscover a connection to the coast. She is fascinated by the majestic moonahs and windblown tea tree, back lit by the ever changing colours of sea and sky. She enjoys the colour and shape of man made structures hugging the salt line, the sea dotted with boats and buoys and other seafaring markers.

During this first year on the coast Debra was invited to the community of Titjikala, traditional area of the Eastern Arrente people, 107 km south of Alice Springs. Working alongside the artists of the Tapatjatjaka Art and Craft Centre left an indelible impression of endless blue skies and wide brown smiles. The women artists, their shy but willing friendship, creative energy and stories impressed upon her an awakening understanding of the language of their homes, heart and community and this continues to inform the colours and form of her paintings.

Geelong Picture Framers

Geelong Picture Framers at Metropolis Gallery

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, but it’s important that the frame, matt, backing board and glass will help to preserve it for many years to come.

Geelong Picture Framers turn your pictures into art!
