Wendy Chenoweth and Els Houwen


“Life is a journey, not a destination” Emerson

Wendy Chenoweth presents another collection of her narrative oil paintings. Lyrical and perhaps quirky at first glance…they often have a deeper, more powerful impact upon reflection.

She is joined in this exhibition by Belgian born ceramic sculptor, Els Houwen whose joyous figures bear testimony to the love and energy that have gone into their creation.

Dates:  17 May – 29 May 2016
Opening Night:  Friday 20th May 6pm to 8pm
Gallery Hours:  10am-6pm  Monday to Saturday – 11am to 5pm Sunday

Brisbane Artsworkers Collective


Exploring attention to detail- amplification, intensification, magnification.

An integral part of the artistic process is sharpening one’s senses to perceive

the intricacies of life- the small, the banal, the overlooked,

the under-appreciated, the misunderstood.By becoming aware of diversity

in individuals and the environment the artist is able to hone in on the lesser

muse and bring to light the hidden richness of the world around us.

Genevieve Camille Jackson


[Emergent properties are properties of wholes that are not present in their parts]

When paintings are presented together in a gallery, does the exhibition have properties not present

in the individual works?

When visual art is combined with poetry, prose, sound and music,do new art forms emerge?

Genevieve considers the act of creation to be a potent effector of catharsis. The practice of art facilitates the exorcism of powerful emotions, whether they are tangible or boil up from the depths of the subconscious during the artistic process.

Soundscapes, poetry and prose by Timothy Jackson
