30 Years in Carlton

30 Years in Carlton

In 1986 I closed my gallery in Armadale and moved to the current address in Carlton where I have held over 100 exhibitions of Early and Modern Australian Art with the help of John and Edward Barkes. We added a new string to our bow in 2007 by opening a second gallery in Hampton with Caroline Chesterfield.  We focused primarily on Contemporary art in Hampton and enjoyed the time there adding Kylie Elkington, Jeff Ferris, Barry Dickins, Brigid Cole-Adams and the Mangkaja Artists from Fitzroy Crossing to our stable.  The building was sold late last year and for one reason or another, we reluctantly decided to concentrate on Carlton.  Our Basement gallery in Carlton now houses our Contemporary work

13th August - 3 September 2010

Over the last 27 years we have had 32 exhibitions of Modern Australian Paintings.  They have always included works by William Dobell, Sidney Nolan, Francis Lymburner and often Charles Blackman, George Lawrence and Danila Vassilieff.  They are all included in this exhibition.  Some are works we previously sold and are delighted to have back again.(Lymburner Showgirl and Lovers)  We also include works we consider good value even if they are by lesser known artists like the striking paintings by Eric Stewart, a self taught artist who was plagued by ill-health and had a consuming passion for indigenous culture; or the London painting by Rachel Roxburgh.

We hold regular exhibitions of Paintings from St. Petersburg in conjunction with London dealer, John Barkes.

In this exhibition the works come directly from artists' studios in Siberia and the Crimea as well as St. Petersburg. All are professional artists and members of a Union of Artists. Many are represented in Russian museums and, since the Gorbachev reforms of the 1980s, their paintings are increasingly seen in galleries in the U.K., Europe, America and, most recently, China. Among them are many artists who trained and taught at St Petersburg's prestigious Repin Academy.
