Exploring Gallery Art

Hubby and I ventured off to the local Geelong gallery to view the Land of the Golden Fleece  exhibition. Arthur Streeton was an impressionist artist in the 1920’s and captured the feel of the places, the times and the potential upheavals threatening this country. The room was painted a vivid blue and added to the intensity of the exhibition. The whole place seemed to vibrate with something akin to happiness.

Interestingly a photographer had traveled to many of the places from which the paintings had been captured, and his photos showed how true Arthur Streeton  was to expressing the essence of the land, the people and the beauty. Having been to many of the areas; Grampians and Lorne, I felt transported back to these magical places. Their beauty and harshness captured so dramatically.

Sharing this experience was very special, we both had different perspectives 129_hero-giles-bettison_chroma-2_2015and that only enhanced the connection with the exhibition and with each other.

Afterward we ventured in to another exhibition of glass, colorful, alive, dramatic and so amazing.

If you have the chance to see the exhibition by Giles Bettison it is so worth it, uplifting, mesmerizing and  simply Beautiful.

If you have the chance to get out and explore your local Art Gallery, give it a go, it’s simply amazing what inspiration you will discover…and it’s so empowering for your Soul. You never know you may just feel like dancing!


About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.

    I actually went out last night to a local ‘pop-up-pub’ held in the Scot’s Church car park as part of the Shepparton Arts Festival. It was a lovely evening even if the wind was chilly. Sitting back and enjoying a good friend’s company, watching her beautiful daughter Jessica Lorraine sing among other local talent was just wonderful. I had forgotten how much I love live performances. Mind you I am paying for it today! Too much socialising on top of teaching all day down in Melbourne.
