Hindmarsh Shire Council and the Dimboola Library are pleased to host an art exhibition entitled ‘A playful reimagining of the Wimmera: Inspired by Sidney Nolan’s Wimmera Series’ at the Dimboola Library from Friday 24 May 2024 to 28 June 2024.

This art exhibition is a collaborative body of work created by artists Linda Gallus and Kaye Clancy.

Both artists’ presentation of paintings and ceramics highlight a whimsical reimagining of the Wimmera’s vast landscape and its unique natural environments that have been inspired by Sidney Nolan’s Wimmera Series.

The exhibition will offer differing perspectives from both artists working with acrylic paint and ceramic materials.

Recent exhibitions by Linda Gallus have included ‘Parallel Journey – Tracing Nolan’s Footsteps’ at the Horsham Art Gallery and ‘Finding the Wimmera – A nod to Nolan’ at the Mildura Arts Centre.

Artist Linda Gallus has ties to Dimboola and the Wimmera as her grandfather was born in Dimboola and her great grandfather owned and ran the Dimboola General Store. She still has many relatives in the region.

Kaye Clancy’s works present a colourful collection of Australian native birds that have been hand sculpted with deep grooves and gouging using raku clay and fired three or four times to obtain the right colour and effects that respond to Nolan’s play on shapes, patterns and brush strokes.

The exhibition will be held in the Old Shire Hall, 101 Lloyd Street, Dimboola from Friday 24 May until 28 June 2024 with the official opening from 5:00pm on Friday 24 May 2024.
