After our brief break we’re back with a truly enchanting exhibition.
Andrew Ensor has been exploring castles as a visual motif for more than 20 years. This, his 37th(!) solo exhibition, is a retrospective bringing these delicate and dreamlike drawings together. His pieces, softly merging pen and paint, present a romanticised, yet fragile view of the world while exploring the aesthetics of entropy.
Drop by the gallery to experience these richly coloured worlds of surreal landscapes and architectural compositions, telling intricate stories of grandeur, fragility and timelessness.
Drinks with Andrew in the gallery 2–7pm Saturday September 23
This week we are moving about as far as we can from the (crazy) stereotype of the sterile, white, quiet, art gallery environment.
budlife are launching issue 5 of their magazine with art, plants, zines, demonstrations, floral arrangements and bonsai. Then over the weekend there will be a fair with stalls selling all kind of plant related things. It is going to be an action-packed green-thumbed week!
Gallery open 12–7pm Th & Fri, 10am–6pm Sa & Su
Art-Zine-Plant Fair 11am–4pm Sa & Su
Jen Burns was the very first artist to book a show with us, so we are delighted she has also chosen us as the venue for her very first solo exhibition.
As to be expected from such a talented and witty artist, the works she is sharing with us are as amusing as they are gorgeous. Bin chicken on a bin lid? of course! Honey-eater on a sugar bag? naturally. And because it is Jen there are magpies everywhere.
These are not just birds, these are birds ON THINGS!
Take a sneak peak here.
Celebrate with wine, cheese and Jen from 4–8 pm Friday July 14
Gallery open 12–6pm Th-Sa & 12–4pm Su till July 16
We are taking a little break to focus on our own creative work. You can still drop in to see us, and the art from the stockroom we have selected for the walls. Just note the somewhat reduced opening hours…
12–4PM TH-SU UNTIL JULY 9
Then we are back with a bang and Jennifer Burns’ witty and charming new exhibition ‘Birds on Things’.
‘First Drawer’ has to have been one of our most successful shows to date. There were crowds of happy people admiring the wonderful, colourful (and affordable) prints and collages from these two talented artists, and so many sales! If you missed out this time, I believe they will be back next year…
Thank you to Emily and Sabrina, and thank you to all of you wonderful art lovers supporting us and them.
We are so glad the judges of the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes have made it possible for us to feature this amazing work at Tiliqua Tiliqua.
Featuring work from four of our favourite artists — Jennifer Mullen, Louise Beck, Dilara Niriella and Nectarios Livisianos — this is our very own Salon des Refusés. Unfortunately we can’t offer any of them a big prize, but we can offer you some gorgeous art to look at, or even own.
All the details and a preview of the paintings are here.
Join us for drinks with the artists from 6–8 pm Tuesday June 6.
Gallery open 12–6pm Th-Sa & 12–4pm Su till June 19
This is an exhibition to bring some unadulterated joy to your life!
Dilara explores the images that defined her childhood (and probably yours) in this series of bright, nostalgic paintings. From jelly beans to tiny teddies, this is a delicious mouthful of a show.
Join Dilara (and us) for a drink at the opening Thursday 25 May from 6pm.
GALLERY OPENING HOURS: 12–6PM THURSDAY–TUESDAY, 25–30 MAY 2023
We are so excited to bring you our inaugural annual group show — CYAN.
Featuring many of the artists who have made our first year in the gallery so enjoyable, this exhibition is a celebration of the colour blue. And it truly is a celebration! The artists have responded to the theme with playful, joyful and moving artworks across an impressive range of mediums. All at a convenient size and price too.
Please come and help us mark the first anniversary of our first show in the Tiliqua Tiliqua gallery. Because the only people as important to us as the artists who have contributed, is fantastic art-loving folk who have supported us and joined us on our journey. See you at the party on Saturday 20 April!
(Or drop by anytime the gallery is open, we can probably rustle up a drink…)
GALLERY OPENING HOURS: 12–6PM THURSDAY–SUNDAY 20–30 APRIL 2023
