Harlequin Animalia by Anna Wheeler, 16 August to 10 September 2017
Animals are a recurring theme in Wheeler's paintings. She has frequently painted the goat and cow. In this exhibition Wheeler has introduced more animals including the African zebra, buffalo and elephant. She loves the pattern of the zebra and the boldness of the shape of the buffalo head with its strong horns. Anna paints the animals with whimsy. She says "I love animals. They are wonderful to look at. I try to capture their individual personalities through paint."
Heads Up by Patricia Harry: 16 August to 10 September 2017
You have to have opposites: you’ve got to have that dark and light. Art doesn’t come from theory, it comes from the soul and from learning the history of art.

As a sculptor, the dance between form and void always interests me, not only on a material level, but also as a meditation on the framework of human consciousness. So, within my work there is often a dynamic union of opposites and a fullness of sculptural form that tapers to a point.
Red Gold: The Cedar Story by Helen Leane
29 March to 22 April 2017. Presented by Gallery 139, Newcastle
Opening Friday 31 March at 5:30pm
Through a series of monotype printmaking, Newcastle based artist, Helene Leane explores the history of the majestic Australian Red Cedar Tree.
A recent move to the Hunter Valley, to the district where this tree once called home, has informed the making of these works which celebrate the patterns, delicate layers and changing colours of the leaves of a now re-planted Cedar landscape.
