Thursday 14 February 2013

We are always working with our clients to create personalised variations on many of the works in the Gallery.

So when a client asked for a custom insert to display a collection of rare coins in a Peter Goring Box we were happy to help. The insert was machined with precision by a cnc router and finished with a high gloss spray lacquer.

Double Vision: Richard Morecroft Exhibition Catalogue

Friday 14 December 2012

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

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.

Richard Morecroft

Richard Morecroft may be best known for his work on television – especially with his SBS show Letters and Numbers. For several years now he has been exhibiting his distinctive landscape photographs that create a sense of immersion in the environment.

Richard has been dealing with points of view for many years, particularly while with ABCTV, for most of his working life. In the main they have been the views of others. But now he is addressing his own points of view through his unique photographic representations of the Australian Landscape.

Double Vision: Tanya Stubbles Exhibition Catalogue

Thursday 13 December 2012

Luna Zephyr $2,400 - 94x94cm Reclaimed timber, sand, grout

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.

Tanya Stubbles

Tanya Stubbles’ art practice began in 2006 and she remains seriously committed to her art, exhibiting in group and solo exhibitions in Wollongong, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Alice Springs and China. She completed two residencies at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon, was a 2008 Wynne Prize finalist and won the 2012 Wollongong City Art Prize.

Bryce Courtney, Well Remembered.

Tuesday 04 December 2012

On a late winter Saturday afternoon Bryce Courtney breezed into the gallery. There was urgency if not desperation to find a box to fit the stack of hand written manuscript for his first novel “the Power of One”. No box in the gallery was deep enough. How deep? About 200 mm. We can have it made to order. “In a week?” “For my wife’s birthday!” A week. Phone calls. And yes, says Garrick Blue, I have one length of timber that would suit. If I drop everything I can do it in a week.

Smiles and relief all around. And on leaving Bryce said, “Everyone in Bungendore is so friendly.”

We asked Bryce to write a few words about his experience with Bungendore Wood Works Gallery and he wrote back soon after expressing what we do and what we are about better then we could ever do.

Anton Gerner - Review by Meredith Hinchliffe

Monday 29 October 2012

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 – Exhibition Catalogue

Sunday 23 September 2012

White Morning $11,900 - 80x140cm Acrylic on canvas

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 Bungendore Wood Works Gallery.

David Voigt is a unique artist, unafraid of strong colour and artistic licence. His works are almost figments of his imagination, but in reality are very real experiences abstracted by light and point of view, dramatic and subtle at once, always intensely interesting and providing the viewer of his works, and particularly the owner, with a continuous journey through his view of the land, to be enjoyed again and again. Enter a Voigt painting from any point on his canvas is to immediately begin sharing this multi-award winning artist’s journey.

What people say

Thursday 06 September 2012

There has been a comments book at the front counter of the Gallery since the Gallery opened in 1983. Visitors from all over the world have jotted down their impressions, thoughts and comments, sometimes legible and somtimes not, and not always in English in our comments book. These comments fill numerous volumes and it seems a shame to keep them all to ourselves. 

Below are just a few of the comments from the last month.

"An unexpected oasis in the desert"
David, Deneliquin

 "Magnificent epicentre for the whole community"
Elektra, Sydney

"Delightfully nostalgic"
Marie, Brisbane

 "Always a treat to visit"
Kim & Lisa, Broulee

"Overwhelmed by the stunning gallery"
Lila, Poland
