200+ images by 30+ artists
According to the word on the street (or avenue, in this case) gallery blink’s forthcoming show demonstrates that many visual artists also have a way with words.
‘WORDplay’, our upcoming exhibition, features art inspired by text. Some pieces incorporate text as part of the image while others take their inspiration from a book, poem, play, newspaper, or magazine article. The show is not pun-free!
Art ‘speaks’ whether or not text is included, but in this show, the inspiration of the written language combined with the visual language of an artist makes for a compelling body of work. Each piece of art has its own story to tell. We think it makes a good read.

ART MADE WITH BEESWAX
A DROP-IN DEMO
with encaustic artist
Loosely related to the life & times of the honeybee, our show 'BUZZ' will be diverse and summery. Featuring florals, fields, honey and bees, along with a diverse selection of artwork using beeswax - encaustics, cold-wax pieces, batiks etc. BUZZ shows over 200 works of art from more than 30 emerging and established artists, based in the region. Visitors will enjoy a diverse range of work highlighting traditional as well as new techniques and innovative processes used by contemporary artists. Whether your preference is abstract or more realistic work, we're sure you'll find something that resonates with you. If you are new to artwork made with beeswax, you'll also have a chance to learn more about the process.
As with every show at gallery blink, the presentation of the work encourages visitors to experience art in new ways. We’ve become known for the way we hang and stage art. We often talk about how each work ‘speaks’ to its neighbor as a way of drawing in the viewer, but the staging also helps in this regard. We often place artifacts strategically near a piece so they draw attention to an aspect of the work perhaps not immediately obvious. One of our patrons put it like this:
“Seeing the artwork hung in context makes the viewing experience so much more meaningful. The work is technically great, but the focus here is so much more on the heart and soul of what the art is about.”
With such an eclectic mix of fabulous, affordable works from so many emerging and established artists, we think you will really enjoy this show!
We look forward to welcoming you here.
