Reimagining the Wimmera at Dimboola

Hindmarsh Shire Council and the Dimboola Library will host an art exhibition titled ‘A playful reimagining of the Wimmera: Inspired by Sidney Nolan’s Wimmera Series’.

The exhibition, at Dimboola’s Old Shire Hall, will start with an official opening at 5pm on Friday and run through to June 28.

The exhibition is a collaborative body of work created by artists Linda Gallus and Kaye Clancy.

Both artists’ presentation of paintings and ceramics highlight a whimsical reimagining of the Wimmera’s landscape and its unique natural environments that have been inspired by Sidney Nolan’s Wimmera Series.

The exhibition will offer differing perspectives from both artists working with acrylic paint and ceramic materials.

Gallus has had two recent exhibitions, including ‘Parallel Journey – Tracing Nolan’s Footsteps’ at Horsham Art Gallery, and ‘Finding the Wimmera – A nod to Nolan’ at Mildura Arts Centre.

She has ties to Dimboola and the Wimmera as her grandfather was born in Dimboola and her great grandfather owned and ran Dimboola General Store. She still has many relatives in the region.

Clancy’s works present a colourful collection of Australian native birds that have been hand-sculpted with deep grooves and gouging using raku clay and fired three or four times to obtain the right colour and effects, responding to Nolan’s play on shapes, patterns and brush strokes.
