Throughout April he is working on a new series of paintings, etchings and monotypes of his distinctive aerial landscapes . These have been inspired by photos taken of his flight over Europe including stopovers in The Middle East.

Susan Baird will be exhibiting a new collection of landscape paintings at Bathurst Regional Gallery from from 22 March – 12 May 2013.
“Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) is proud to present Susan Baird: Being in Landscape as part of our ongoing commitment to showcasing artists investigating the rich cultural history of the historic gold mining village of Hill End.
Baird describes Hill End as being a muse for her recent work. The paintings in this exhibition have evolved from her participation in the Hill End Artists in Residence Program – initially at Haefligers Cottage in April 2011 and then at Murray’s Cottage in November 2012. Working en plein air the artist captures the landscape and light of this unique place.
This exceptionally beautiful body of work developed by Baird over her two residencies represents her personal response to the seductive landscape of Hill End.”- Richard Perram Director, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery March 2013.
We also look forward to Susan Baird’s upcoming exhibition at Arthouse Gallery from 16 May – 8 June 2013.

Arthouse Gallery is delighted to announce it will be exhibiting works from two exciting emerging talents Leah Fraser & James Ettelson from Wednesday 27 February till Saturday 16 March. We will be hosting a champagne preview for both exhibitions on Wednesday 27th February from 6 – 8pm.
Leah Fraser will be making her Arthouse Gallery debut with her intriguing solo show ‘The Valley of the Silver Moon’. A COFA graduate, Fraser has previously exhibited in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as participating in a residency in Mexico, which further developed her complementary ceramics practice. The artist’s lyrical paintings and ceramics take inspiration from diverse folk mythologies and children’s tales and depict shaman-like characters traveling through mystic lands in a state of spiritual metamorphosis.

Following the success of his sellout solo show last February, Laugh, at Arthouse Gallery 27-year-old James Ettelson approached the rest of the year with the same energy exhibited in his painting practice. 2012 saw Ettelson journey to Los Angeles where he travelled extensively in order to absorb the city’s vibrant youth street culture. Upon his return Ettelson moved his studio to Byron Bay where much of this new collection of work was created. For this latest exhibition with Arthouse Gallery, the ever-candid Ettelson analyses popular culture’s preoccupation with love and its influence on our own personal relationship with that very complex emotion.

Lulu’s latest work explores a fantastical world where characters including Female archetypes, Religious icons and Nature itself, play out a drama of repression, departure, flight and transfiguration. The narrative unfolds within and between the paintings, referencing Classical mythology, Surrealism and Cinema. The work depicts the spectrum from constraint to liberation. Lulu builds the work using fine brushes and multiple layers of acrylic washes and varnish.
In anticipation of Lulu Pinkus’ upcoming show ‘Transfiguration’, noted arts reporter Caroline Baum sat down with the artist to discuss the inspiration behind her work (above).
Poh Ling Yeow’s hotly anticipated exhibition at Arthouse Gallery, ‘The Time Is Now‘, has been featured in The Weekend Australian. The exhibition explores notions of belonging and origin, as a Chinese Malaysian, Yeow’s works attempt to reconcile this heritage with her western identity.
‘The Time Is Now‘ will be on display from 28 November to 15 December with an artist talk from 4pm on Saturday 1 December.
