THROUGHOUT the month of March, Gallery F will have an exhibition of artwork produced by artist Kerryn Finch called ‘Tangible Memories’.
This is the first solo exhibition for Kerryn in Mildura showcasing her vibrant still life images of native flowers and items she has found around her house and they are sure to impress.
Kerryn revealed that the objects in the paintings have nostalgic and sentimental importance to her.
“I started painting things around my home, little bits and pieces that I had collected over the years,” she said.
“I’m a little bit of a hoarder, and often pick things up and think that it would look good in a painting. I realised that as I was putting these objects together to paint, they were creating little narratives, that made me remember certain people or moments in time.”
The exhibition is a culmination of 12 months work, during which time Kerryn has worked prolifically, producing between 40 and 50 paintings in that time, with 25 of them on display at the Gallery F exhibition.
“I went to SuniTAFE and LaTrobe University here in Mildura to study art nearly 20 years ago and have been painting ever since,” she said.
“I live in Kerang, but I am originally from this area, so it is really nice to put on an exhibition here.”
Situated at 31 Deakin Avenue, Gallery F is open Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 4pm and Saturdays and Sundays, 10am to 2pm.
