Ensemble: artists from our region
Many artists within the geographical footprint of the Tweed Regional Gallery have mounted their first solo exhibitions through the Community Access Exhibition Program (CAEP) which offers a valuable exercise in professional development, and raises artists’ profiles in the regional community and beyond. Artists who have previously exhibited under the CAEP include Hobie Porter, Angus McDonald, Andrew Hmelnitsky and Gatya Kelly.
Ensemble: artists from our region at Gallery DownTown showcases the visual arts practice of 10 of the artists who have recently held exhibitions at the Tweed Regional Gallery through the CAEP.
These artworks highlight the talent of artists living on our doorstep. Many of these artists held their first solo exhibition through the CAEP and have gone on to have further successful shows.
Artists featured in Ensemble are Phil Barron, Andew Hmelnitsky, Helle Jorgensen, Gatya Kelly, Abbey McCulloch, Deb Mostert, Lae Oldmeadow, Dale Rhodes, Craig Tuffin and Oksana Waterfall.
