Exhibitions    Women light the way Watson Art Centre

22.03.17 to 09.04.17

Women, Light The Way is an exhibition by women artists in celebration of creativity and the joy of life. Held at Watson Arts Centre (Aspinal Street, Watson) - this is an exhibition by five Canberra women artist - Marijke Gilchrist, Anghard Dean, Simone Doherty, Anita Smith and Ruth Lathlean.

This diverse exhibition celebrates creativity and the joy of life, with each artist interpreting the theme in their own way. 

I have chosen Water as my theme as the encaustic medium lends itself to capturing and reflecting light; and in these works, focussing on the interplay between light and water.

Water is essential to life. It is powerful, peaceful, chaotic and cleansing all at once.   Many ancient cultures pay tribute to the Water Goddess. Aphrodite was born out of sea foam; Cymopoleia, the daughter of Poseidon, was the Goddess of storms.

These goddesses light the way – expressing multi-dimensional feminine power: soft and sweet, fiery intensity and brooding storms. A rainbow reflected in the beckoning twilight; a glimpse of sunlight through the dark clouds; frothy seas.

Only images of encaustic artist Marijke Gilchrist are shown. All works are framed
