A Bungendore Wood Works Gallery 30th Year Anniversary Exhibition.


When Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened its new doors to the current Gallery in 1994, Pamela Griffith was the first visual artist to grace the walls of the upstairs, exhibition specific Octagon ArtSpace.

Two years earlier she had opened her woodworking brother Andrew Gittoes’ exhibition in the original Wood Works Gallery located in the historic Bungendore Store just across the road. A widely known and acclaimed artist, Pamela’s printmaking and painting skills have been apparent in the Gallery ever since, including her four solo and three group exhibitions.

The Hook in the Heart $1,200 - 68x73cm Pigment ink on photographic paper

Double Vision: Richard Morecroft Exhibition Catalogue

Double Vision brings together the inspiring works of two very different artists – yet is also a celebration of powerfully shared themes.

For both artists, the exploration of pattern and structure in the natural environment is a key element. Stubbles’ richly tactile, yet painterly, abstracted landscapes and Morecroft’s seductively detailed photographs are an intriguing combination.

Anton Gerner - Review by Meredith Hinchliffe

Viewers can see several influences in Anton Gerner’s work. He has been working for the past twenty years or so, using traditional hand tools, construction techniques and finishes. He keeps solid quality timber – until just the right piece is conceived. We are told that he personally chooses each piece of timber and assesses the grain, colour, strength and texture, matching the perfect timber with a unique piece of handcrafted piece of furniture.

David Voigt – Paintings and Drawings

6 October – 3 December 2012

Bungendore Wood Works Gallery invites you to celebrate the opening of a exhibition of paintings and drawings by David Voigt at 2pm Saturday 6 October, 2012 Octagon ArtSpace.

David Voigt’s artistic spectrum for this exhibition begins with delicately toned pencil drawings, and continues through striking watercolours, ethereal landscapes and highly complex geometric visions of elements of the landscape and light. In a sense he is returning to his artistic roots. His first solo exhibition held in Canberra in 1968 featured drawing based techniques including etchings, serigraphs and drawings. This, his fifth solo exhibition at the Gallery since 2004, is the first to include his subtle, tonally sublime pencil drawings.
