BLUE is the 2nd Group Exhibition at The Corner Store Gallery for 2018. Artists are invited to submit work of any medium, subject matter or size that predominantly features the colour blue. The idea for this exhibition came to gallery director Madeline Holborow in 2017 while hanging the annual 8x10 exhibition. Many of the artworks were primarily blue in colour and looked spectacular all displayed together. Let's wash the gallery in blue just to celebrate colour for the sake of colour. The exhibition will include the most exciting and original artworks submitted for selection from artists and designers from all over Australia.

My love of the Australian rural landscape and all things bovine continues to grow. I love nothing more than to stand among my beauties and appreciate their different noses, ears, eyes and hair do’s - yes cows have their own, unique little tufts just between their ears.
I initially painted cows in a naive style and included their surroundings. As my work progressed and my love of cows grew I wanted to better express each individual cows personality. I decided to make them into pure portraits. I want the viewer to question if they are a photograph or painting.
Gaahna Bula are the Wiradjuri aboriginal words meaning two shoulders – or more commonly known as Mount Canobolas.
I am fortunate enough to live in a location with sweeping views of Mt Canobolas which I sit and admire daily. Many mornings, afternoons and late evenings are spent watching as the spectacular colours of the seasons move in and then out. Watching as the changing hues of the day move across the majestic peaks and fold into magnificent sunsets.

Mathematician and Artist? This body of work draws from the two differing worlds of beauty that I sing out to: The world of mathematics and geometry, with its calculated design, order, and precision, and the natural world, with its roughness, textures, shadows and details.

Paper Pear is an eclectic gallery based in Wagga Wagga NSW. Owner, Stephanie Day, loves nothing more than to roadtrip in search of beautiful artworks, delivering pieces along the way, so when she heard about the opportunity to combine a roadtrip to one of her favourite places with a pop up at The Corner Store Gallery, Orange, she jumped at the chance.
Our purpose is to share a sense of wonder, looking up and into the distance. Recording intricate details and natural patterns gathered in clouds, on land and in water. The artworks encourage people to look closely at the everyday in their environment. These Images work from afar but the closer you step, the more you see of the natural patterns found in nature, describing our days observations as artists.
Floating lands, a sense of wonder - discovering and creating.

"In this particular series of works, I have reflected on my time spent in the Central West. I have focused mainly on the ever changing afternoon sky, its kaleidoscope of colours, the clouds, its transformative effect on the land and its vastness. It’s about the end of the drive, you’re almost home and nature is putting on its final show before the night sky creeps in." - Fiona Barrett-Clark
