Exhibition: ‘Expanse’

Fri 23 February - Wed 10 April

Mel, a graphic designer, engages in creating expansive artworks, in both large and small scale. ‘Expanse’ explores the hues and forms of our country’s landscapes, with a focus on lands and sky compositions. Her artistic journey involves ongoing exploration with abstract work, and more recently landscapes. This body of work features both expressive brush strokes, which are often seen in Mel’s abstract representations, mixed with softer, blurred lines.

Even though Mel has always been creative, her artistic journey into the world of acrylics really began when she opened a store in Forbes. This was an opportunity to showcase her work to a broader community.

Where abstracts were always her passion, with expression – she is now delving deeper into her own style of landscapes with more and more interest from her audience.

The opening will be held on Friday, 23 February 2024 at 6pm. Please RSVP to info@visitweddin.com.au or 02 6343 2059 should you wish to attend.
