South Eastern Contemporary Art Network’s (SECAN) are this year showcasing their work at their very own art space, Gate 6 Gallery.
Located in Berwick’s picturesque Akoonah Park, Gate 6 Gallery has grown from its origins as a shed into a permanent art space perfect for exhibiting work from some of the region’s best artists.
“We had a few shows there when it was still in its ‘shed-state’, then last year Casey Council approached us about refurbishing it,” Gate 6 Gallery curator Annette Slattery said.
“We are so excited to have a proper gallery with professional lighting and the proper hanging gear.
“It lifts the artworks and makes it so much more enjoyable to look at the art.”
The latest exhibition to feature at the new gallery is a showcase of some of the artists’ favourite pieces, old and new.
The display demonstrates the variety of themes, mediums and styles encompassed by the diverse group of contemporary artists.
SECAN includes many luminary local artists such as Andrea Hopgood, Geoff Sargent and Janine Good.
The members of SECAN cover a wide range of mediums including painting, sculpture, mosaics, textiles, scratchboard, assemblage, collage, digital art, drawing, photography, installation, fibre arts, printmaking and ceramics.
The SECAN members’ exhibition has its grand opening 3 March from 4pm to 5.30pm. The exhibition is then on display until 25 March during gallery hours – Saturdays and Sundays 11am to 5pm.
The gallery, which has free entry, is located at Gate 6 Cardinia Street, Berwick.
