Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery Purchase – Lezlie Tilley ‘Pages from an a-less novel’
We are delighted to announce that Lezlie Tilley’s work, ‘Preface‘, has been acquired by Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery for their permanent collection.
This work belongs to a series that began in 2012. The angular and abstracted forms were created by connecting the ‘a’s’ on a page selected from a novel. Due to the ongoing nature of the concept of the a-less novel, further works may be commissioned in a wide range of materials including timber, metal and ply.

Artbank + Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Acquire Nicole Welch Works
We are delighted to report that Nicole Welch’s recent exhibition Apparitions has seen her work enter three important Australian collections.
Artbank purchased ‘Apparitions #3′, a major Australian corporate collection acquired ‘Apparitions #4′ and Bathurst Regional Art Gallery purchased two works from this series, ‘Apparitions #1′ and ‘Tondo #3′.
Each work is in an edition of 6, with two size and price options available, so although a favourite work from Apparitions may have been snapped up by these major collectors, a limited number may still be available.
Al Munro’s ‘Molecular Measures’ selected by
Penrith Regional Gallery for Colour and Light, until August 24
A selection of Al Munro’s ‘Molecular Measures’ series are currently on view at Penrith Regional Art Gallery in their new exhibition Colour and Light, which adopts a scientific lens.
As Munro explains, “These works are the result of a number of discussions with Waratah Lahy about the areas in which our interests connect… My works began with a number of drawings, but soon moved into a constructed form using balsa wood to allow me to explore ideas of structure and construction… The works reference diagrams, but replace the conventional black and white line work with brightly coloured, glittering stripes, reinvesting the forms with some of the variety and vividness present in natural specimens.” – Al Munro, 2014
