South African born artist and art educator,
Louise Grove Wiechers,
returns to Graceville Gallery for her second exhibition
– “Sanguine” –
a collection of paintings inspired by
the Big Red Continent – Australia.
Come to Graceville Gallery
to meet Louise Grove Wiechers
and enjoy drinks and nibbles on Friday 4 July from 6 to 8 pm
at 465 Oxley Road, Sherwood.
Ms Louise Grove Wiechers said the term Sanguine refers to the use of red throughout all the works and also to the inherent optimism and confidence as found in the alternative definition of the word.
“It comprises a new series of large landscapes with abstract qualities,” she said.
“I have a fondness of the universal rural environment. It’s a dream state where everything seems almost unreal.”
Ms Grove Wiechers completed a Bachelor of Art in Fine Art in Johannesburg.
After her honours year, she completed a higher diploma in Education and started a career teaching and lecturing in art.
Louise’s first exhibition at Graceville Gallery, “The Intimate Landscape”, was in September 2007 soon after she arrived in Australia.
For the past 15 years, she has been painting on a full-time basis, had many solo and group exhibitions, and won several major art awards.
Her work forms part of private and corporate collections in Europe, Africa and North America.
Louise Grove Wiechers is currently teaching at the Lilly Lee Studio behind the gallery.
This exhibition runs from the 1st to the 30th of July at Graceville Gallery at 465 Oxley Road, Sherwood.
The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 10 to 5 and Saturday and Sunday 10 to 4. www.redbarnstudio.com.au
