art worth seeing

Chute, 2011 by Sarah Amos

New works by Sarah Amos are showing now at Flinders Lane Gallery in Melbourne. These two images are just a delicious taster. And if you're lucky enough to be in town this Saturday 3rd September go along to the floor talk at the gallery, 2pm sharp. I've been a huge fan of Sarah's work since I saw her massive prints at an exhibition 2 years ago in gallery 101. Gorgeous stuff. Lots of fine line detail and imagery.

Seems Melbourne folk are very lucky at the moment. Belinda Fox is also exhibiting in our neck of the woods. Belinda is a mind-blowingly talented printmaker. No exaggeration - her work makes me weep with joy. This time she's showing at Niagara Galleries and is exhibiting mixed media pieces and ceramics. I first saw Belinda's work several years ago in Sydney and could not believe how beautiful it was. I think what I'm especially drawn to is the reference to Asia through her use of lotus flowers and jagged mountain ranges. Image above from Niagara Galleries.

Go see and enjoy!


  1. Great work! Thanks for introducing me to these two artists, Kylie.

  2. Sarah is doing a masterclass at the Firestation Print Studio where I am a member and artist in residence. The class is full but we hope she will do another masterclass next year as she is a wonderful teacher.

  3. Thanks for letting us know Myra! :)

  4. I enjoyed visiting their sites!
    I love the work of Sarah, thanks for sharing!
