April 1st, 2022Bigger Little Gallery
TRENTHAM’S Little Gallery is celebrating its first anniversary as the bigger Little Gallery in its spacious, light-filled new premises by showcasing two new guest artists.
Covid’s restrictions have meant the bigger Little Gallery has been unable to stage official openings over the past 10 months but those shackles come off at 4pm on Saturday, April 2 with a public opening of new works by local sculptor Peter Butterworth, pictured above, and painter Linda Wheeler, below.
Artist Rose Wilson said the artist-run gallery had always operated with an ethos of supporting local art and artists and has exhibited works by more than 500 local artists over the last nine years.
The Butterworth and Wheeler works will be on show for three months alongside the constantly changing display of pieces by permanent artists Rose Wilson, Helen Cottle, Ri Van Veen, Kim Haughie, Larissa Gray and Llael McDonald.
The work of local consignment artists Ruby Wilson-Peirce, Sam Bloomfield, Dianne Longley, Fran Harkin, Liz Archer and Anneke Hoekstra will also be on display.
Outgoing guest artist Kathy Holowko’s amazing hovering bats and Steph Goss’ beautiful botanical pieces have been at the gallery for the past three months and have been well received by locals and visitors alike.
“Please join us at the opening by welcoming our two new guest artists in residency Peter and Linda, plus new works by the collective on Saturday, April 2 from 4pm to 6pm,” Rose said.
