This lovely lizard and striking mask can be seen at our latest exhibition ‘Made My Way.’  Vernon Park Gallery is showcasing artwork made by talented Pure Art Studio artists. Want to see for yourself? The exhibition runs until Sunday August 18th during café opening hours.

We are always impressed by the quality of work produced at the studio and we are keen to give others the opportunity to see this.

The work of six Pure Art Studio artists is being showcased:

  • Megan Carr
  • Darren Eaton
  • Adam Elliot
  • Chris Gage
  • N.M.
  • Laura White

Megan Carr is exhibiting four of her colourful ceramic artworks including abstract sculptures. She has also included her written cards detailing her sources of inspiration.

Two of my artworks are based on portraits. I saw a picture in a book of Bruce Sherman. I really liked it. It was something different. It was cubism.

The sheer variety of individual styles, a product of the creative freedom fostered by Pure Art Studio, is what makes Made My Way so special. The artists work in different media including ceramics, pencil and paint creating a stimulating exhibition.

Artists Megan and N.M. were there to hang their artwork allowing them to complete their creative involvement in the process.

Come and see the artists’ work for yourself before the exhibition ends on August 18th!
