A collection of artworks showcasing Melbourne’s bright and vibrant cityscape will be coming to Stawell at Chalk Circle Gallery’s new exhibit, Melbourne Abstracts.
Artist, writer and musician Helen Carmody will be showing her work at the Main Street gallery from 2pm on Saturday, July 15 until August 9.
Ms Carmody earned her degree in fine art at Melbourne’s RMIT University and described these paintings as “a visual memoir of her decade living in Melbourne”.
Chalk Circle co-founder Bev Isaac said the gallery wanted to exhibit the now Stawell resident’s work immediately after seeing it.
“They are quite beautiful paintings,” he said.
“They are full of action and will be familiar to anyone who has lived in a major city.”
The exhibit will be Ms Carmody’s first after winning many prizes in group shows throughout her career.
“This time we are showing the work of an artist who only moved to Stawell about 6 years ago and is almost unknown in the region,” Mr Isaac said.
“Her work is not what people expect to see in small regional galleries, so we’re sure it will get people talking.”
