Isabel Foster: The Challenge of Colour
Isabel’s extensive body of work shows her lifetime’s devotion to needle and thread, colour and the ingenious use of the finest materials.
As a child born between two world wars, Isabel was raised in a time where thrift was given and home furnishings were handmade. This upbringing planted the seeds of resilience, independence and creativity, which have become the hallmarks of this remarkable textile artist.
Isabel’s passionate works highlight the ability to break with conventions and push her creative boundaries.
The exhibition will feature signature pieces from Isabel’s long career spanning 45 years.
7 March - 22 April
Scott’s oil paintings are serene, romantic, peaceful, and reflective. Sometimes he paints a memory; other times impressions of places he’s seen. Taking a little from here and there to mould and melt together until the gloominess of a hard day’s work is pierced through with the light of serenity.
His subjects vary from the Melbourne’s impressive skyline and crowded streets to simple gardens, towering manors, quaint cottages, and country haunts. Come and take a walk with Scott and find your soul refreshed as you journey through a world reminiscent of your own deepest and dearest ‘Memories and Impressions’.
